Tester: China Spy Balloon NOT a National Security Threat
I don't know why we have to always be the ones to point this stuff out. Why do so many of the so-called journalists keep dropping the ball and fail to hold these politicians accountable?
Liberal Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) is now pretending to talk tough on China and the China spy balloon. He is trying to look tough by claiming that he will hold the Biden Administration accountable. This, after NBC News reported that China WAS able to gain intel on our US military sites, despite the Biden Administration saying otherwise.
Heck, Tester himself told CNN that the China spy balloon was NOT a national security threat.
Jake Tapper: I know you can't tell us classified information, but do you feel that there was no military threat?
Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT): I am much more comfortable with the explanation of what they collected as to being...let me put it this way- it doesn't put our national security at risk.
We all know why Tester is now trying to look tough, why he is now trying to look more moderate- he's up for re-election next year.
Hat tip to Mike Berg with the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) for pointing out the obvious hypocrisy of Tester pretending to hold the Administration accountable at the same time he is basically providing cover fire for the Administration.
Meanwhile, as we reported earlier this week- 3/4 of Montana's Congressional Delegation is demanding answers, after it was reported that kids on US military bases were being targeted with Drag Queen Story Hour events. Senator Tester remains silent.
