Steve Bannon Accuses Mark Esper of Treason After He Makes Outlandish Claims About His Time Serving Under President Trump [VIDEO]
Esper asserted that members of the US military, including himself, went behind Trump’s back to make their own rules. He also stated that Trump suggested the US military shoot the George Floyd protesters, a claim that Trump expressly denied.
“This is a complete lie, and 10 witnesses can back it up,” said Trump in a statement responding to Esper’s claims. “Mark Esper was weak and totally ineffective, and because of it, I had to run the military.”
Esper also revealed that he and General Mark Milley conspired to block any moves President Trump tried to make.
The former Defense Secretary also appeared on Fox News saying that Trump was a threat to democracy.
