‘Breach Of Trust’: Senate Republicans Demand Briefing From Pentagon On Defense Sec’s Unknown Hospitalization – By Micaela Burrow (Daily Caller) / Jan 10, 2024

Republicans on the Senate Armed Services Committee demanded a formal briefing from Department of Defense (DOD) officials on the circumstances surrounding Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s unexplained absence in a letter sent Wednesday.

Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker, the top Republican on the panel, led 11 of his GOP colleagues in requiring a briefing from all relevant Pentagon officials by Jan. 19 to answer for Austin’s failure to disclose his hospitalization from Jan. 1 to late afternoon on Jan. 5, according to the letter. Wicker called Austin’s behavior “an intolerable breach of trust with the American people at a dangerous moment for U.S. national security.

“Our branches of government share a sacred obligation to work together to keep the American people safe. We cannot do this without clear and open communication,” Wicker wrote in the letter.
