Just The News: The military community erupted Tuesday in response to reports that Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, held secret phone calls and meetings in a surreptitious effort to sidestep the authority of his then-commander-in-chief, President Donald Trump.
“If this is true GEN Milley must resign,” tweeted Alexander Vindman, a retired Army lieutenant colonel who in 2019 was a key witness against Trump in impeachment hearings.
Milley’s actions include making secret calls to the chief military officer in Beijing, and summoning top American military officers to a clandestine gathering to demand that they only obey command orders that came through Milley, according to the authors of a forthcoming book.
The actions are reportedly described in a forthcoming book, “Peril,” by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. Milley took the unprecedented actions because he was afraid Trump might launch a nuclear strike, the authors wrote.
Vindman expressed outrage that Milley directly and independently contacted the foreign military official. more here
SNIP: Hilarious. First, a book directly aimed at Milley is released.
Then Vindman starts trashing Milley.
Keep in mind, none of them gave a shit when Milley was disobeying Trump’s orders when he was in office.
But now? OuTrAgE! Why? Because Milley is probably going to be the one to take the fall for the Afghanistan mess.
