Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement on Thursday he plans to oppose specific military nominees in coming weeks, escalating his continuing standoff with the Biden Department of Defense.
Tuberville said in the statement:
I warned the Pentagon that I would hold their most senior nominees if they broke the law. They did it anyway, and forced my hand.
Since then, Chuck Schumer and the Biden Administration have refused any serious negotiations, and so this situation has dragged on.
This has given me more time to look more closely into the background of some of these nominees, and I have deep concerns about some of them.
I will continue this process of oversight and I will announce my opposition to specific nominees in the weeks ahead. . . .
. . . . Now Tuberville and conservative groups are looking into the individual backgrounds of the nominees themselves, and are ready to oppose them based on their promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion and other woke initiatives in the military.
It is not clear yet exactly who Tuberville may oppose, but they could include officers at the very top of the military. . . . (read more on Breitbart News)
