James “Mad Dog” Mattis left his post as Secretary of Defense in late 2018.
Back in 2017, he held a “secret” meeting with an Amazon official that eventually lead to a $10 billion contract with the world’s richest company.
Here’s the scoop, via Daily Wire:
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis had a secret meeting with a top Amazon cloud sales executive in 2017 before the Pentagon announced a $10 billion cloud computing contract that critics say was designed to be fulfilled only by Amazon, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reported on Friday.
Earlier this month, The Intercept reported:
Amazon Web Services and Microsoft are now the two finalists to win the highly contested $10 billion contract for what is known as the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI. The deal, one of the largest federal contracts in U.S. history, would pay one company to provide cloud computing services in support of Defense Department operations around the world.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson broke the story…
Patrick Shanahan is currently the acting secretary of defense. He has been nominated by President Trump to become full-time secretary of defense.
Shanahan has announced that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built.
So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every day. He said that we will see about “63 additional new miles of wall” constructed six months from now. #thewall
