A transcript from a January 6 committee interview with General Mark Milley shows the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff agreeing with Nancy Pelosi that former President Trump was “crazy” and assuring her that the nuclear codes were “safe.”
The conversation between the pair came two days after the riot at the Capitol and is described by CBS News correspondent Robert Costa as “an extraordinary moment in American history.”
The transcript shows the committee relaying parts of the conversation to Milley for comment.
“What prompts her call is concern about the President’s stability or mental health,” they state. “She even says in the call, ‘You know he’s crazy, don’t you,’ and she is reported to have said, General Milley, that you agreed with her.”
“You said: I agree a hundred percent with everything you’ve said,” the transcript reads.
When Milley speaks he replies, “That’s right.”
Keep in mind, this is about a President that was routinely attacked for his outspoken pro-peace policies.
Milley Helped Pelosi Fight Trump From Within
There isn’t much to the testimony that is truly shocking for readers of The Political Insider. It’s well-established that Milley had long gone down the path of engaging in treasonous behavior well before January 8th.
What is shocking is that this country is seeing a literal insurrection in that testimony and not even batting an eyelash.
Trump was still in office at the time the conversation took place between Pelosi and Milley, and a military leader was assuring one political party that the President of the United States couldn’t take military action to protect the country if he saw fit.
That’s extraordinary, Mr. Costa.
‘If They Want to Put Me In Prison, Have At It’
Fighting the President from within, while vowing to disobey orders from the Commander-in-Chief, in some people’s eyes, amounts to treason.
According to excerpts from a book covered by The Political Insider this past summer, Milley reportedly vowed to fight then-President Trump in 2020 “from the inside” and dared those opposed to his actions to arrest him.
That is long, long before the so-called insurrection.
“Fuck that shit,” Milley allegedly told his staff following an incident in which a decision was made to remove rioters from Lafayette Square during a protest in June of 2020. “I’ll just fight him.”
“If they want to court-martial me, or put me in prison, have at it,” Milley continued. “But I will fight from the inside.”
Milley’s defiance of Trump that summer wasn’t the only time he’s been accused of being a deep state operative.
Milley, according to a book titled Peril published in September of 2021, assured General Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army of China that the United States military would not strike the communist country.
Perhaps most astonishing was a quote which shows Milley was willing to warn China if an attack was in the works.
“General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time,” he purportedly said. “It’s not going to be a surprise.”
Tipping off the enemy used to be a punishable offense. Siding with them, well, that used to be frowned upon by all Americans.
Milley’s actions very easily could have prompted China, perhaps fearful that America’s top military officer thought President Trump was so unhinged he could greenlight an attack, to launch their own military action against America first.
Simply stated – He could have started an actual war between nuclear powers.
And we now know Trump would have been prevented from responding because Milley and Pelosi were colluding as if they ran the country behind his back.
Aside from his traitorous actions during the Trump administration, Milley played a major role in the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and leaving behind billions of dollars worth of American military weapons for the Taliban to seize control of.
The question remains, why is this man still employed, let alone not ‘court-martialed or put in prison’ for a variety of actions?
