On Thursday, Senator John McCain (Republican-Arizona) said it might require a subpoena in order to get more information about a deadly ambush attack in Niger.
According to CNN, McCain said, “It may require a subpoena” when he was asked what needs to be done to get more information about the attack that left four U.S. soldiers dead.
According to sources, U.S. Africa Command has already scheduled a formal investigation for October 4th into the incident in Niger that left four Army Green Berets dead and two injured.
According to NBC, Defense officials said the U.S. Africa Command sent a team to Niger to conduct a “review of the facts.”
Experts are also reportedly trying to establish an hour-by-hour timeline of the events in Niger. The investigation will include all U.S. military branches and agencies involved in the deadly mission.
McCain also added that it is not necessary to wait for the Defense Department to finish its investigation.
McCain said Tuesday, once again, that he does not think the Trump administration has provided enough information on the attack in Niger.
Asked by The Hill whether the administration has been forthcoming on information on Niger, McCain said “no.”
In reference to President Obama’s last defense secretary, McCain also said, “I had a better working relationship, as far as information back and forth, with Ash Carter than I do with an old friend of 20 years.
What are your thoughts? Do you think that the Trump administration has something to hold by not releasing enough information?
