- According to a report from CNN’s “KFiles,” one of Donald Trump’s appointees to the Pentagon has been approvingly retweeting Twitter posts that call the election of former Vice President Joe Biden a “coup,” while also helping to promote a petition calling for the president to declare martial law following his election loss.
- According to the report, Scott O’Grady the former fighter pilot and Trump loyalist, repeatedly retweeted tweets that falsely stated Trump won the election in “landslide fashion” and that millions of votes were stolen from the President. On November 25, O’Grady retweeted a tweet that said, ‘Trump won & Biden & his Comrades will now attempt a coup,’ next to a photoshopped image of Biden beside Xi Jinping, the President of China.”
- “On December 2, he retweeted an account that shared an article that said former national security adviser Michael Flynn had shared a petition that called for martial law. He then retweeted the same account which suggested that Trump should declare martial law,” CNN reports, noting that source Twitter post that read, “I don’t know who needs to hear this but calling for martial law is not a bad idea when there is an attempted coup against the president and this country happening right now.”
