Democrats are vindictively targeting conservative soldiers for the smallest reasons.
They’ll use every excuse to go after them.
Donald Trump was horrified at the price a soldier paid for appearing with him.
Former President Donald Trump invited Marine Lance Corporal Hunter Clark, who worked protecting the Hamid Karzai International Airport during President Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, onstage with him at a “Save America Rally” in Perry, Georgia, on September 25.
“You saw him, he did a great job, Lance Corporal Hunter Ian Clark. Lance Corporal, get up here!” Trump said.
The crowd applauded as Clark introduced himself as “the guy that pulled the baby over the wall,” and declared “it’s definitely probably one of the greatest things I’ve done in my entire life.”
He continued, “I just want to thank all the support from all y’all. It really means a lot and I’m glad to be home now,” before shaking Trump’s hand and exiting the stage.
But because of these actions Clark is under investigation.
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.”
The spokesman would not elaborate on what policies Clark is under investigation for but just stated that it doesn’t allow active-duty troops to “speak before a partisan political gathering, including any gathering that promotes a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.”
Task & Purpose noted that the rally was a “political event” but added that “Clark was not in uniform when he appeared with Trump. Nor did he campaign for a political candidate or suggest that service members follow a political party.”
“Trump ostensibly invited Clark on stage as part of a public show of support for U.S. troops,” the report added.
This isn’t an isolated incident.
Last week reports emerged that Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was thrown into the brig for questioning why there was no accountability among the top ranks for America’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Scheller knew that he was risking prison for speaking out:
“The Marine Corps will assign an investigating officer. Most likely a Colonel,” Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller said in the update, according to The Washington Examiner. “Once the investigating officer finalizes his recommendation, the Marine Corps will decide if they should pursue court-martial.
“If it goes to court-martial,” Scheller added, “I will be found guilty and will probably do some jail time. This will provide me a valuable opportunity to read, write, and contemplate.”
