Lance Cpl. Hunter Clark, the U.S. Marine seen in viral footage pulling a baby over the wall outside of the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan, is being investigated after he appeared alongside former President Trump at a rally in Georgia.

“The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) has initiated a command investigation regarding LCpl Hunter Clark’s attendance at the event last weekend to determine if any DoD policies were violated,” said spokesman Capt. Kelton J Cochran. “Any details pertaining to this incident are not releasable while the investigation is being conducted.”

Cochran did not specify what policies that Clark may have violated, but the Defense Department does not allow active-duty troops to “speak before a partisan political gathering, including any gathering that promotes a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.” (Task & Purpose) Read more and see video and tweets here.

Manchin Gave Schumer a Top-line Number For Spending Bill This Summer
Leah Barkoukis / Townhall Tipsheet
Sen. Joe Manchin gave Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer a top-line number of $1.5 trillion for Democrats’ massive spending bill this summer with conditions for his vote.

“Senator Manchin does not guarantee that he will vote for the final reconciliation legislation if it exceeds the conditions outlined in this agreement,” reads the agreement given to Schumer dated July 28, 2021, which was obtained by Politico.

But that top-line figure did not sit well with progressives like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders who believe it’s unreasonable. 

"Uhh, for one year?" Ocasio-Cortez wisecracked, laughing when asked about Manchin's topline number. The New York Democrat argued that there were "a lot of games being played with this number" and stressed that over 10 years, $3.5 trillion is $350 billion per year. Read more and see tweet here.
