Marjorie Taylor Greene Puts Mark Milley on Notice, Calls for Probe into Why Trump Was Unaware of Previous Chinese Balloons

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has put General Mark Milley on notice and called for a probe into why President Donald Trump was not informed of Chinese surveillance balloons allegedly violating American airspace during his administration.

Greene responded after Biden officials put out statements allegedly that Chinese Communist Party (CCP) spy balloons crossed over the U.S. a few times when Trump was president.

Greene said: “Defense officials now claim that Chinese Spy Balloons briefly flew over the U.S. during the Trump admin, but if true, WHY is this just now being reported?”

“This information was discovered after the Trump administration left.

“How do they know now?

“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.

“The POTUS is the Commander in Chief,” the congresswoman asserted.

“We must investigate and hold accountable those who broke rank.”

Meanwhile, Trump administration officials all said that no Chinese balloons came into our airspace when they were in office.

Trump said they never happened and many thought the Biden administration was covering for the Democrat president after the Chinese balloon was seen floating across America.

“Chinese surveillance balloons flew over the continental United States at least three times during the Trump years, according to a senior administration official, but key details about the incursions weren’t widely known until after Joe Biden took office.

“Former President Donald Trump and some senior officials who worked for him have denied knowing that Chinese airships entered US airspace on their watch.

“While some members of the Trump administration eventually realized that the unidentified objects were Chinese spy vessels, those intelligence conclusions often took weeks – particularly because the balloons included jamming systems to hide their true intent, Trump-era officials said.

“The former president was never presented an opportunity to shoot balloons down.

“Intelligence officials from the Biden administration are willing to provide former Trump national security officials with a briefing about the Chinese surveillance efforts, according to the current administration official, who discussed intelligence matters on the condition of anonymity.”
