Rep. Mark Green Questions Biden Administration Move to Fire Trump Appointees from Military Advisory Boards


U.S. Representative Mark Green (R-TN-07) questioned President Joe Biden’s efforts to remove more than a dozen Trump allies from military advisory boards.

The statement from Green follows Biden moving to terminate each appointee, asking each member to resign or be fired.

“Why is President Biden so brazenly breaking the law to fire 18 people duly appointed to the boards of our nation’s Service Academies? Is he afraid they’ll conduct actual oversight into the very important challenges each Academy faces? Is he afraid they will shine light on what is being taught at these academies—like Critical Race Theory? Now more than ever, our public institutions need oversight—not political engineering,” Green questioned.

The move by Biden seemingly breaks a tradition that has allowed the previous president’s appointments to remain.

Many of the individuals, who are facing resignation or termination by the Biden administration, have spoken out against the move and refused to resign.

“I find this whole act unconscionable and not all in the spirit by which this Administration promised to govern. President Biden ran on a supposed platform of unity but his actions speak directly to the contrary. Apparently, unity is only for those who conform,” tweeted Meaghan Mobbs, an Afghanistan veteran and member of the West Pointe Advisory Board.

“No. It’s a three year term,” added Russ Vought, while tweeting a picture of the letter that he received.

Biden has blamed the appointees for not being “qualified.”

“The president’s objective is what any president’s objective is, which was to ensure that you have nominees and people serving on these boards who are qualified to serve on them and who are aligned with your values,” she said,” said White House Press Secretary Jan Psaki.

    Not at all surprising, Joe is doing only that what his handlers tell him to do. His word in governing to include all rings hollow much like him ramblings on Afghanistan and the Southern US Border. This guy, this administration, cannot be trusted.
