Deep Dive (March 16): Politicized Military? Questions Arise After Tucker Carlson and US Military Spat

The Washington Post is walking back claims that former President Donald Trump told Georgia’s elections investigator to “find the fraud.” It issued a correction on March 11 to a story it published in January. It said the original story about the call included quotes that didn’t exist in the audio recording. In his lengthy response, Trump said he appreciated the correction but he’d also appreciate further investigation into Fulton County.

The fence surrounding the Capitol Building is set to come down soon. The Senate Sergeant at Arms says there is no credible threat that warrants using it any longer. The fence has drawn controversy for weeks from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. One Democrat congresswoman from D.C., Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, even introduced a bill to prohibit federal funds from paying for a permanent fence around Capitol hill.

Questions arise on whether the U.S. military has become politicized after many members criticized Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson while in uniform. This comes after Carlson said President Joe Biden is diversifying the U.S. military with “maternity flight suits.” He added, “Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the U.S. military.”
