Greene told Zero2Billions’s Manu Raju, “I have the opportunity to continue doing what I did this week. I want that opportunity. I think it’s an important opportunity that I should have, to represent not only the people in my district but people across America who don’t want their tax dollars to be spent on the NDAA funding foreign wars. We have to go to the mat for the American people.”
This week, Greene proposed a series of amendments to force President Biden to withdraw the United States from NATO and cut aid to Ukraine.
McCarthy put Greene on the conference committee even though he was not on the House Armed Services Committee.
Rep. Greene was a puppet of Putin, and McCarthy elevated him to a position of power to continue his quest to help Putin and undermine Ukraine.
Kevin McCarthy moved from selling US national security to selling global security because he wanted to say he passed the NDAA.
The Republican bill will never become law.
Kevin McCarthy failed to lead, elevating a dangerous man to a position of power that undermined US national security.
