Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is standing up for Jack Teixeira, a Massachusetts Air National Guardsman who was arrested in connection with a prominent investigation into leaked documents. Furthermore, she insinuated that the Biden administration is the true adversary.
In a tweet, Greene defended Teixeira, saying he “is white, male, Christian and antiwar. That makes him an enemy to the Biden regime. And he told the truth about troops being on the ground in Ukraine and a lot more.”
She continued, “Ask yourself who is the real enemy? A young, low-level national guardsmen? Or the administration that is waging war in Ukraine, a non-NATO nation, against nuclear Russia without war powers?”
Following her remarks, Greene faced criticism from several Democrats, including campaign strategist David Axelrod and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA).
Swalwell tweeted, “McCarthy’s top lieutenant is siding with one of the biggest traitors America has seen. I’m sorry, Marge, being white, male and Christian is not license to betray your country and put the lives of thousands at risk. But this wouldn’t be the first time she sided with traitors.”
Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has stated that Greene should not be granted security clearance after coming to the defense of the Air National Guardsman.
On Thursday, Cheney tweeted, “Marjorie Taylor Greene makes clear yet again that she cannot be trusted with America’s national security information and should not have a security clearance of any kind.
In another tweet on Friday, Greene acknowledged that leaking classified information is a grave offense. Nonetheless, Teixeira has been hailed as a hero by many for revealing the facts about the current administration.
Greene has been actively demanding an explanation for the reported US military intervention in Ukraine against Russia. She sent a letter to the Secretary of Defense on Friday seeking answers.
When it comes to Ukraine, the Biden Administration has lied to us from the very beginning.
Joe Biden said the US would not get involved in the war in Ukraine because Ukraine is not a NATO member nation.
Yet over a year later, we’ve sent hundreds of billions of dollars, military…

Greene has accused President Biden of deceiving the American public about the conflict and alleged that the US has provided billions of dollars worth of weaponry and assistance to Ukraine, drawing the United States into a proxy war. In her letter, Greene claims that these actions have brought the United States to the “brink of a nuclear holocaust.”
