Two days after the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, President Donald Trump's top military adviser, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, single-handedly took secret action to limit Trump from potentially ordering a dangerous military strike or launching nuclear weapons, according to "Peril," a new book by legendary journalist Bob Woodward and veteran Washington Post reporter Robert Costa.

He should face a Court Martial.

So nice to know we have Generals that would undermine Presidents.  I know what some here will say but let's reframe this.  Obama was a bit of a rogue President.  He utilized our military to assassinate Americans, ordered illegal missions in allied countries without consulting them, etc.  What if Generals had made moves to undermine him based on that?  Would that seem acceptable?  Probably not.  The military should start an investigation towards a possible court martial to see if this is fact, the same as they would if a Major took similar action to undermine a General.  What if a Major or a Colonel told a Captain, no matter what the General tells you to do you don't do it until I say it's okay.?  That would never fly.

Thats a bunch of lies on Trump. Trump`s plan  would have our troops, our people, our allies, and our weapons out of Afghanistan on May 1 .Trump only said to bomb our bases when we get out  because our bases are our biggest  bases in the world .

Unfortunately in Milley's chain of command he is only answerable to fellow Joint Chiefs, the President and Congress so it's highly unlikely that anything will be done about it. Except that is maybe Pelosi heaping praise on him for taking decisive action.

I think a military tribunal can be held regardless of what any politician thinks.

I think Milley was prudent to take such an action, because trump is mentally unstable.

Is there a better source than a for-profit book release?

Perhaps his quest to understand “White Rage” has effected his grasp on reality.

The original source was The Washington Post where Bob Woodward is an associate editor.

According to Woodward/TheWashingtonPost Milley called Beijing secretly, twice, to warn them that Trump might bomb them????? 

The first call before the Nov. 2020 election and the other call Jan. 8, 2021 

He secretly warned China of something that might happen but obviously didn't ?????

????????????? 

Bizarre

Trump was for America not against it. Any General that went against him as our president should be in jail. You meth heads need to get a life and stop living in fantasy land. Obama was a joke he was nominated President to fill a gap just like Biden is nothing but a pawn. It’s a game you’re vote that you feel so strongly about casting is BS do you think it honestly gets counted? That it makes a difference?  No its rigged and it’s been rigged for a long time we just couldn’t imagine our country doing us that way but it did, How many elections have you ever seen take days to count? They applied every trick in the book to get Trump out and they did it.

Unless Trump actually tried to do something stupid and was stopped, the whole story is pointless.

The book also revealed that Milley had two back-channel phone calls with China’s top general to reassure him that the U.S. would not attack, even promising to give him a heads up if it did.

According to a write-up by the Washington Post, Milley — four days before the 2020 presidential election — assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, that the U.S. would not strike.

Milley even pledged to alert Li in the event of a U.S. attack.

“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. It’s not going to be a surprise,” he said, according to the book.

Trump blasted Milley in his statement:

If the story of “Dumbass” General Mark Milley, the same failed leader who engineered the worst withdrawal from a country, Afghanistan, in U.S. history, leaving behind many dead and wounded soldiers, many American citizens, and $85 Billion worth of the newest and most sophisticated Military equipment in the world, and our Country’s reputation, is true, then I assume he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have been dealing with his Chinese counterpart behind the President’s back and telling China that he would be giving them notification “of an attack.” Can’t do that!

The good news is that the story is Fake News concocted by a weak and ineffective General together with two authors who I refused to give an interview to because they write fiction, not fact. Actions should be taken immediately against Milley, and better generals in our Military, of which we have many, should get involved so that another Afghanistan disaster never happens again. Remember, I was the one who took out 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. Milley said it couldn’t be done!

For the record, I never even thought of attacking China—and China knows that. The people that fabricated the story are sick and demented, and the people who print it are just as bad. In fact, I’m the only President in decades who didn’t get the U.S. into a war—a well known fact that is seldom reported.

It is high treason.  Trump obviously had no intention of attacking China, but there are some that are mentally unstable that they thought he would.  That's the MSM and the power of persuasion on the mentally disabled.  If the Republicans sweep as expected, I would say trials will begin then.

What that General said was that all orders needed to go through him first regardless of origin. He never said he would not comply.

I wouldn't call "check with me first before you nuke somebody or do something stupid like that" high treason. I would hope a check like that is in place regardless of whoever is president.

From the link:

"Peril" is based on more than 200 interviews with firsthand participants and witnesses, and it paints a chilling picture of Trump's final days in office. The book, Woodward's third on the Trump presidency, recounts behind-the-scenes moments of a commander in chief unhinged and explosive, yelling at senior advisers and aides as he desperately sought to cling to power.

 

I'll believe these firsthand participants and witnesses before a word that comes out of Trump's mouth any day. He will deny everything in the book, yet bring no legal action against it, knowing they are facts.

When books like this come out, he just denies anything, instead of "slamming it" like he does everything else.

The thing is we keep hearing "The MSM." Trump has been viewed as explosive, arrogant, rotten, someone who stiffs contractors, tenants etc.. for decades and it is out there on the web for all to find.

No, the MSM didn't create a negative view of Donald Trump, he did.

You people fail to listen to all the witnesses over the past four years that were members of his cabinet, administration employees etc.. first hand people, who have painted a dangerous an indeed unhinged Trump.

And the man is a divider. He calls people who support him "true Patriots" and the Democrats, "the far left, communist, socialist."

So keep dropping to your knees and worshipping this man, Judgment day approaches.
