"My oath is to the constitution, NOT to him"
Perfect 👌

Esper is a conservative, and a patriot. I'm a liberal, and I think, a patriot. We swore an oath to the U.S. Constitution, not the POTUS.

I know this hero in Iraq 1990
I was his translator
He was younger than me, but way cooler
I knew he was not ordinary man
Now Iam proud of his courage

His loyalty belongs to the constitution not any one person, Trump or not!

The mentioned “revolving door” between Pentagon jobs and weapons contractor lobbying is a national disgrace. Nobody who has been through it is an ethical person.

"My oath is to the Constitution, not to the President" .... I'm sure Meadows had a lot of trouble wrapping his head around that one.

My main frustration with this interview is that if esper knew what he knew at the time, why didn’t he at least go to Congress in a closed hearing with what he knew? Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad he’s coming out now.

I had respect for Esper after reading "I Alone Can Fix It" by Rucker & Leonnig.

A good guy surrounded by a terrible administration.

Secy. Mark Esper has been authentic and true to his national security convictions and sacred oaths.
Very reassuring and helpful.
“Crazy people” stupid leaders, and “conspiracy theorists”can’t overcome the nationalist who respect the constitution.
“No four no s “ doctrines like the
“Powell Doctrines” .
Great discussions. Great history!

After all of the information is revealed, the GOP will still ride with Trump.
