Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley - who just facilitated the transfer of billions of dollars of US military hardware to America's enemies during the botched Afghanistan pullout - engaged in a 'top-secret' mission to undermine President Trump's ability to order military strikes or launch nuclear weapons following the Jan.6 Capitol riot, according to a new book by Bob Woodword and the Washington Post's Robert Costa.

Milley's treasonous effort allegedly stemmed out of fears that Trump could 'go rogue,' according to CNN.

"You never know what a president's trigger point is," said Milley - who just separated an entire family of Afghan civilians from their mortal coils in a haphazard drone strike.

Milley took extraordinary action, and called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office on January 8 to review the process for military action, including launching nuclear weapons. Speaking to senior military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center, the Pentagon's war room, Milley instructed them not to take orders from anyone unless he was involved. -CNN

"No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure," said Milley, unconstitutionally, before going around the room and 'looking each officer in the eye, asking them to verbally confirm they understood.'

"Milley considered it an oath," wrote the authors.

Meanwhile, Milley also had two 'back-channel phone calls' with China's top general in the waning days of the Trump administration.

Woodward and Costa also write that 'some might contend that Milley had overstepped his authority and taken extraordinary power for himself,' but he believed his actions were 'a good faith precaution to ensure there was no historic rupture in the international order, no accidental war with China or others, and no use of nuclear weapons.'

What's more, Milley warned China if the United States was going to attack!

The book also claims that Trump signed a military order after he lost the 2020 election to pull the US military out of Afghanistan by January 15, 2021 - days before he left the White House. The memo, drafted by 'two Trump loyalists,' was reportedly nullified, "but Milley could not forget that Trump had done an end run around his top military advisers," and "felt no absolute certainty that the military could control or trust Trump and believed it was his job as the senior military officer to think the unthinkable and take any and all necessary precautions" according to the book.

Milley's actions against a sitting president have sparked outrage and calls for his ouster.

This seems to be a pretty significant story. It'll go the way of the AZ audit. Sure seems like treason to me.

Sure seems like treason to me.

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court." Art. 3, Sec. 3, U.S. Constitution

Treason is what comes to mind in this case, and for good reason. But absent a state of war that's a tall order.

People might start with sedition or at a minimum with insubordination.

I dunno, I'm not much of a legal-beagle. I just used to think that I knew the difference between right and wrong.

There's the tricky part. How are they going to further demonize Trump without telling the whole story?

It's not like Television can magically edit the truth and neglect other facets.

“I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

I'm not a legal beagle either, but while the word "treason" is being thrown around a lot by responsible people with regard to Milley, it's not a charge that's bound to stick - even following the plain- language definition of the term.

Sedition - "incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority" fits the bill.

This overfed flag officer, according to reports, told his subordinates that the United States military might be required to use physical force against the president. "We're the guys with guns," Milley said.

10 U.S. Code § 894 - Art. 94. Mutiny or sedition

(b)A person who is found guilty of attempted mutiny, mutiny, sedition, or failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition shall be punished by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct.

There's your right or wrong.

There is no tricky part.

There is nothing to suggest that President Trump had any intention of nuking anyone before he left office.

Gen. Milley is off his blinkin' rocker like the rest of the Dark State which inhabits the District of Cock-a-roaches.
