Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is supposed to be a man of utmost respect and integrity.
Instead he has proven himself time and time again to be a radical socialist ideologue.
Now his own testimony shows how far he was willing to go against Donald Trump.
Milley was “110% sure” he could stop Trump from doing anything “crazy”
Mark Milley thought Donald Trump was “crazy” and he was willing to go to all ends to try to undermine him.
All along he was working with Nancy Pelosi and said he was “110% sure” that Trump wouldn’t do anything militarily after the 2020 election.
He was testifying for the January 6 Committee when he answered questions about his call with Pelosi.
A committee member asked him if he had “reassured [Pelosi] that despite her concerns about the President’s stability” he would “personally” prevent Trump from accessing nuclear codes.
Milley confirmed, simply by saying “that’s right,” but went on to explain that launching nuclear weapons went through a “good, rigorous process.”
None of this should come as a surprise to normal Americans.
Most people don’t expect the President to be the only one involved in a decision like accessing the nuclear launch codes.
Pelosi, however, wanted to feel like she had influence over Trump and could stop him in the most consequential of situations.
For some reason, General Milley went along.
Milley confirms his “secret” call to Chinese counterpart around the same time
Bob Woodward also pointed to impropriety by Milley in his book Peril, in which he details two “secret calls” in October 2020 and January 2020.
In the calls, Milley was promising his “Chinese counterpart, Gen Li Zuocheng of the PLA, that the U.S. would not strike.”
Following the release of Woodward’s book, Milley released a statement that confirmed these calls.
The statement said the calls “were in keeping with [his] duties and responsibilities.”
It said “his calls with the Chinese and others in October and January” were “staffed, coordinated and communicated with the Department of Defense,” adding that Milley “regularly communicates with Chiefs of Defense across the world.”
The issue isn’t that he was having the calls, it’s whether or not he was looking to interfere in the sitting President’s role as Commander in Chief of the armed forces.
The call with General Li in January happened around the same time as the call with Pelosi.
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says Milley has set a “dangerous precedent”
Milley’s testimony before the January 6 Committee has been long sought after.
Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch has been seeking information about Pelosi’s call since March of 2021.
He says that the call has created “a dangerous precedent that could undermine the President’s role as Commander in Chief and the separation of powers.”
It seemed like Pelosi was doing everything she could to control Trump in the fallout of the 2020 election.
Though she might have control to introduce articles of impeachment, she didn’t have the Constitutional authority to control military decisions.
Fitton is right.
This is a very dangerous precedent that needs to be addressed.
No one should be able to usurp the Constitutional authority of the Presidency – neither the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs or the Speaker of the House.
