2/10 Chris Stewart talks all about China ... but where is he on Russian influence in our elections? Does he support Trump’s refusal to challenge Putin — & instead shift US policy to the ex-KGB agent’s favor, such as weakening NATO and pullout of US troops from Germany?
3/10 Does he support Trump today? Russians like having Trump Toadies in Congress. They sure won’t like me there.
4/10 I’m running for Congress to ensure foreign policy professionals are on House committees. Putin gets away with more when we have underwhelming people in Congress (eg Chris Stewart) who put party above country.
5/10 Taliban machine gun bullets hit a mud wall a few feet away from me (Helmand 2010). I’ve been in a convoy attacked by a suicide car bomber (Khost 2007) & had numerous RPGs, IDF, & bullets hit far too close to Marines & me in both combat zones (my book has the red details).
6/10 Our campaign is supported by veterans of all ranks, corporals and sergeants to captains, colonels, and generals, particularly Marines.
7/10 I believe my bio is worth comparing to the incumbent in this regard: Chris Stewart flew high and fast while in the Air Force. Nothing wrong with that but ...
8/10 I lived the Afghanistan & Iraq wars on the ground across seven consecutive years. There’s a difference. I’ve almost been killed while serving our country in the State Department. That reinforces priorities. I never want our country to start another unnecessary war.
9/10 In Congress, I promise to do my part so that Utah service members and their families get the policies that match their sacrifice — starting with re-examining the AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force).
10/10 “Twenty Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2019, but it was not clear which killings were under suspicion.

The intelligence finding was briefed to President Trump [in late March]...but the White House has yet to authorize any step, the officials said.”
