President Donald Trump tweeted a letter Thursday by former national security and senior officials under previous Republican administrations endorsing him for his re-election bid.

“We are former national security and senior officials who served under the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and/or Donald Trump, or as Republican Members of Congress or Senior Congressional Staff members,” the letter reads. “We proudly endorse the re-election of Donald J. Trump.”

Their primary reasoning for the endorsement, the document states, is that “President Trump has brought a badly needed realism to American national security policy that puts the prosperity and security of the American people first.”

“President Trump has pursued a strong foreign and national security policy in America’s national interests,” it continues. It then praises him for imposing hard sanctions on North Korea, China, Iran, and Russia, for persuading NATO allies to meet their defense spending obligations, and for creating the new U.S. Space Force military branch in deterring China and Russia’s own aerospace advancements.

Throughout the 2020 election, numerous officials from former Republican administrations as well as military and intelligence officials have openly criticized Trump’s foreign policy manner and alleged disparaging statements he has made about U.S. soldiers, having reportedly called them “losers” and “suckers.” Trump, however, denies making such statements. Many of these people have endorsed Trump’s challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, for president instead of him and have even created anti-Trump political PACs and organizations.

This joint endorsement of the president represents a significant shift away from this trend.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
