AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Teixeira was a member of the armed force’s military intelligence operations. He took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. He committed treason and put lives in jeopardy. Every Congress person represents the Federal government and is accountable for upholding the Laws of our Nation and the Constitution. Republican politicians, like Marjory Taylor Greene, siding with Teixeira, are violating their oath of office.

This is a view that has been put forward on the right, with the Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, a member of the homeland security committee, defending Teixeira on Twitter for being “white, male, Christian and antiwar”. She went on: “That makes him an enemy to the Biden regime. And he told the truth about troops being on the ground in Ukraine and a lot more.”

The South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham, a fellow Republican, condemned Greene’s comment on Sunday, calling it “one of the most irresponsible statements you could make”.

“There is no justification for this, and for any member of Congress to suggest it’s OK to leak classified information because you agree with the cause is terribly irresponsible and puts America in serious danger,” Graham said on ABC’s This Week.

Teixeira worked at the Otis air national guard base on night shifts as a cyber transports systems journeyman – similar to an information technology specialist – in the 102nd intelligence wing since May last year.

Teixeira’s stepfather and stepbrother appear to have worked at the full-scale, joint-use base that is home to five military commands, including the air force’s 101st intelligence squadron, the intelligence unit assigned to the wing Teixeira worked for, and the only land-based radar site providing intercontinental and ballistic missile warning for the eastern coast of the US and southern Canada.
