Let's forget for a moment about his decades of service to the country in uniform: He has forfeited all of the good he did for our nation during those years by the manner in which he has conducted himself in the era of Donald Trump.
According to a new book by Bob Woodward and veteran Washington Post reporter Robert Costa, Milley, under the guise that Trump was crazy and was bound to "go rogue" after the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, which was completely set up by the deep state to put the final nail in 45's presidency, went behind the duly-elected commander-in-chief's back to garner support from other top military officials to undermine Trump's authority.
CNN has additional details based on reporting from the book, titled, "Peril":
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.
Woodward and Costa write that Milley, deeply shaken by the assault, 'was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election, with Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies.'
Milley worried that Trump could 'go rogue,' the authors write.
"You never know what a president's trigger point is," Milley told his senior staff, according to the book.
Milley then took "extraordinary action," the outlet added, calling a "secret meeting" in his office inside the Pentagon on Jan. 8 "to review the process for military action," which included the launching of nuclear weapons. In collusion with senior military officials who were in charge of the National Military Command Center, which is the Defense Department's "war room," the Joint Chiefs commander instructed them not to take any orders from anyone "unless he was involved," CNN added.
"No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that process," Milley commanded his subordinates, the book says, going around the room to look each officer in their eyes and asked them to confirm to him that they understood what he was saying.
Each officer acknowledged they understood.
"Milley considered it an oath," the authors wrote.
The authors also write that Milley actually called his Chinese counterpart to 'warn' him about Trump, while conferring with Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the status of the country's nuclear arsenal, which was effectively shut down for days after the Jan. 6 breach because Milley had apparently vowed not to allow Trump to order nuclear strikes (talk about the perfect time for China to have launched!).
Understand what this means: For those of you who have never served in the military, the president of the United States is the commander-in-chief, period, not the Joint Chiefs chairman. He takes orders from the duly-elected president the same as every other military officer.
But by instructing his top military staff -- and them agreeing to abide by his instructions -- they are all guilty of a traitorous act against America and a gross violation of their oaths of office.
As we now know, Trump didn't 'conspire' to do anything; but Milley sure conspired to undermine him in a way that is both unconstitutional and very illegal.
Without a doubt, Milley should be arrested along with every single officer who agreed to abide by his instructions; they have betrayed the national trust and they have betrayed their oaths. They should be put on trial and locked away, but they won't be, since our system of government no longer functions as it was designed.
