A Marine who served in Afghanistan just a few weeks ago during the exit, is now under investigation just for attending a Trump rally.
Is this still the United States of America? Why is this man being investigated? Aren’t we still a free country?
This is outrageous.
The Daily Wire reports:
Marine Who Fought During Afghan Collapse Under Investigation For Appearing At Trump Rally, Report Says
A U.S. Marine who was tasked with protecting the Hamid Karzai International Airport amid President Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan is reportedly under investigation for appearing at a rally earlier this month with former President Donald Trump.
Capt. Kelton J Cochran, a spokesman for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), confirmed to Task & Purpose that Lance Cpl. Hunter Clark is under investigation for his appearance at a “Save America Rally” in Perry, Georgia, on September 25.
“The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) has initiated a command investigation regarding LCpl Hunter Clark’s attendance at the event last weekend to determine if any DoD policies were violated,” Cochran said. “Any details pertaining to this incident are not releasable while the investigation is being conducted.”
According to Task & Purpose, the spokesman “did not specify what policies that Clark may have violated, but the Defense Department does not allow active-duty troops to ‘speak before a partisan political gathering, including any gathering that promotes a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.’”
This is not right. It’s un-American.
The only people that have faced consequences for things related to the disaster in Afghanistan are a Marine who criticized military leaders for it and a Marine who saved a baby in Kabul for speaking at a Trump rally https://t.co/E9hnYQ80fy
