National Air Guardsman Jack Teixeira was arrested for allegedly leaking classified Pentagon documents in April. After an investigation, the Air Force has disciplined 15 National Guard members over the leak. Teixeira’s unit “failed to take proper action after becoming aware of his intelligence-seeking activities,” but there was no evidence that his supervisory chain was “aware” of the alleged leaks.

The internal probe discovered a “lack of supervision” and a “culture of complacency” allowing for Airman 1st Class Teixeira to share the hundreds of classified documents on the messaging platform Discord, which is primarily used by online gamers.

Teixeira was indicted on six federal counts of willful retention and transmission of national defense information, and he pleaded not guilty in June. The investigative report was delivered to Congress on Monday, in which the 21-year-old Teixeira’s superiors were blamed for his ability to lead the documents.

The investigation reportedly was concluded in August, but not given to Congress until this week. According to The Washington Post Teixeira’s superiors did not restrict his ability to access classified information and facilities. The Air Force also blamed them for failing to alert appropriate authorities when he was first alleged to have been illegally sharing sensitive documents.

Teixeira pleaded not guilty in June to six federal charges stemming from the intelligence leak.

‘Sanctuary city’ of Denver is secretly paying for illegal immigrants to travel to Utah

Liberal, self-described ‘sanctuary city’ Denver, Colorado is paying for illegal immigrants to travel to Utah, according to Republican Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox.

“We recently learned that the Democrat mayor of Denver has been sending illegal immigrants to Utah without proper notification or approval,” Republican Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox wrote Friday on X. “This is completely unacceptable and follows on the failed catch-and-release policy of the Biden administration.”

Without the approval or advance knowledge of local officials, Denver has been paying for migrants to relocate to other places, including Utah, where approximately 2,000 have been sent, 2KUTV News reported Thursday. Cox said Friday the practice is “unacceptable” and a result of the Biden administration’s immigration policies.

Cox wrote that Utah’s resources “are completely depleted.” His office told Fox 13 News they learned about the city sending migrants on May 13.

“All 50 states, including Utah, are now border states due to the failed immigration policies of President Biden and Congress,” Cox continued. “Once again we call on the Biden administration and Congress to solve this crisis.”

Denver city officials are not blaming the Biden administration’s horrendous open border policies for the overwhelming issue; rather, they blame Texas.

Officials told Axios Friday: “The vast majority of newcomers arriving in Denver do so on buses chartered from Texas and had no intention of ever coming to Denver,” Jordan Fuja, spokesperson for Democratic Denver Mayor Mike Johnston, told Axios. “That’s why part of our operations include purchasing tickets for newcomers to get to their desired location.”

Government officials in Salt Lake City, Utah also were not made aware in advance of the migrants’ arrival, the city mayor’s office told 2KUTV News.

“I have, myself, communicated our displeasure,” Andrew Roberts, chief of staff for Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson, told the outlet.
