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.

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.

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?

Miley is the military's nightmare; he acts arrogant and all-knowing with no commonsense as to how much danger and collateral damage he can cause.....I look at Pershing in this same way and many look at Mcauthur as one too big for his britches'....
What Milley did could have caused WWIII. Trying to run the country behind the back of a president is treason and he should currently be sitting in solitary confinement for the rest of his life!
Here'\s the problem with that whole conversation: The nuclear codes are changed periodically and ESPECIALLY when new President takes office.
Both Miley and Pelosi are traitors to this great nation and should be treated accordingly. Arrested, tried for treason and, if found guilty, then executed expeditiously.
The only reason the thought entered Nasty Ps mind concerning Nukes, is because she would do it herself in order to stay in power.
He belongs before a court martial.
This isn't Democrats and Republicans. This is government. Government defending itself from those who would change the cozy relationships they have created within and without the nation to enrich themselves by sucking the blood from the common taxpayers. You can elect a 100% Republican House and Senate. A Republican President and manage to have all the Supreme Court appointed by Republicans and this stuff will still happen. It's the nature of government to abuse power. You must keep governments poor and weak or this will happen. Both sides are guilty of giving government too much power. Both sides play the game. If you want real change you need to elect people who have to be dragged screaming and kicking into office and ask them to take power from the government and leave the people with the responsibility the founders intended us to take.
How could Trump not recognise both of these traitors, their actions and not take appropriate action early on?
Jail forever for treason!!!
Milley is part of a cancerous command structure that's given us CRT, WOKE, Rachel Levine, Lloyd Austin, Vaccine mandates, Drag shows on bases, purges of warriors and disastrous readiness and recruiting. The kind of general that socialists need to impose their brand of dictator.
We now ACTUALLY have a President that is so addled with dementia that he should be removed from office, but the Democrats so crave the power and will do anything to keep it that they are keeping this guy in office. What I don't understand is when are we the People going to say ENOUGH! I say now would be a good time. Anyone else agree?
