General Milley is already under fire for his phone calls to China, and he is about to get hit again.
According to Woodward’s new book, “Peril,” Milley also downplayed the George Floyd riots.
Milley reportedly told Trump they were nothing more than “penny-packed protests,” even though many cities across the country were literally on fire from the rioters.
Now We Know
Several days ago, reports surfaced that Milley was making backchannel calls to China during the waning days of the Trump presidency.
Considering China was not even on our radar at the time in terms of a strike, we have to wonder why Milley even felt the need to pick up the phone.
Regardless, Milley made the calls and now he is defending his actions, stating that the calls were “perfectly within the duties and responsibilities” of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.
More details from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa’s “Peril” have been leaked, and there was yet another bombshell in there for Milley.
As Trump questioned whether rioters were “burning America down, Milley allegedly responded, “Mr. President, they are not burning it down.
He added, “They used spray paint, Mr. President, that’s not an insurrection.”
Milley additionally told him, according to the book, “We’re a country of 330 million people. You’ve got these penny packet protests.”
The timing of the conversation was not made clear in the report, but we all saw how quickly those riots got out of control right out of the gate.
And, don’t forget, Milley also made this statement regarding Lafayette Park…
Milley’s tune completely changed when it came to conservative protesters on January 6, stating that the breach at the Capitol “was indeed a coup attempt and nothing less than ‘treason.’”
During that time, Milley felt Trump had crossed over to the dark side, believing he was looking for his “Reichstag moment.”
If you watched the video above, you heard Milley talking about not mixing politics with the military, yet his actions and words sound very much like Democrat talking points.
To me, Milley clearly had an agenda, seemingly one that he worked out with House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) toward the end of Trump’s term.
