Third-ranking SecDef nominee General Tata, a Fox News regular, apparently believes that PBO was a Manchurian Candidate and Trump not a Kremlin puppet
Several Democrats on the Senate Armed Services Committee said Monday that they would oppose the nomination of retired Army Brig. Gen. Anthony Tata to oversee the Pentagon's policy shop.CNN's KFile reported on Friday that Tata had a history of making Islamophobic and inflammatory remarks against prominent Democratic politicians, including falsely calling former President Barack Obama a Muslim.If confirmed by the Senate, Tata would become the third highest official in the Pentagon overseeing the Defense Department's policy shop, including its national security and defense strategy, nuclear deterrence and missile defense policy, and security cooperation plans and policies. The policy chief also closely advises the secretary of defense on national security and supports the Department of Defense's program and budget decisions.
Tata, in two tweets that have not been deleted, also accused the Obama administration of treason. In an April 2018 tweet, in which he quote tweeted an account that has since been removed from Twitter, Tata said Obama and Clinton appeared to be guilty of treason.“If true, and it appears to be, #Obama and #Clinton are guilty of sedition and/or treason 18 U.S. Code 2384,” he wrote, linking to a legal definition of treason.In May 2018, Tata tweeted at former CIA Director John Brennan, “Might be a good time to pick your poison: firing squad, public hanging, life sentence as prison b*tch, or just suck on your pistol. Your call. #Treason #Sedition #crossfirehurricane #Obamagate”In another deleted tweet from July, Tata wrote that Obama sought to fundamentally change America because he hated the country.
“The violent left today is not new. Its modern origins in @BarackObama relationship w domestic terrorist Bill Ayers & radical pastor Jeremiah Wright, who hated America. Saul Alinsky's #RulesforRadicals = bible. The left hates America which is why Obama sought 'fundamental change,'” Tata wrote.
