Former US Defense Secretary Sues Pentagon

SANAA, Nov. 29 (YPA) – Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper sued the Pentagon on Sunday, accusing Pentagon officials of withholding parts of his memos.

“An important text was incorrectly withheld from the publication, from Secretary Esper’s manuscript under the guise of classification,” Esper’s lawsuit filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., was quoted by The New York Times on Sunday.

According to the suit, the blocked text is “crucial” to telling some important stories about his tenure under former US President Donald Trump.

I am more than disappointed that the current Administration is infringing on my First Amendment constitutional rights. And it is with regret that legal recourse is the only path now available for me to tell my full story to the American people, ” Esper said in a statement Sunday.
