‘Serious breach’: Greene calls for probe of info withheld from Trump

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Following news that officials in the military may have withheld from President Trump word of Chinese spy-balloon incursions into U.S. airspace during his presidency, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is calling for an investigation.

Just the News reports Greene wants to know the details of why Trump said he had not been told of incursions, and why the Biden administration alleges they happened while Trump was in office.

Her concerns included the suggestion that someone may have been depriving the commander in chief of information he should have had.

The report said, “Greene indicated that the president would have likely been aware of such events had they transpired and suggested his professed ignorance of such balloon activities may indicate that the Pentagon withheld security information from the commander-in-chief.”

“If it’s true the Pentagon purposely did NOT tell President Trump of Chinese Spy Balloons during his administration then we had a serious breach in command during the Trump admin,” she explained, on social media. “The POTUS is the Commander in Chief. We must investigate and hold accountable those who broke rank.”

Just the News documented that Greene, in her position on the House Oversight Committee, is in a position to likely make the review happen.

The report said, “Former Trump administration officials, including Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, former National Security Adviser John Bolton, and former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, have all denied claims that Chinese air balloons entered U.S. airspace during the Trump administration.”

The Biden administration, however, claims that that happened, and explained that the incursions were not “discovered” until after Trump left the White House.

WND reported this week the controversy is over the spy balloons from China that have been floating over the U.S. over the last week. The U.S. military shot one down.

A report at the Gateway Pundit revealed a detail that should alarm Americans: Military leaders knew about the balloons while Trump was in office but withheld the information from the commander in chief.
