I find this disturbing, and yet I do understand that the general's
motivations were good and the actions needed... I just hope this does not
become a trend...

"In the days following the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, Joint
Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley held a top-secret meeting with senior
military officials to take action against then Commander-in-chief Donald
Trump, blocking the president from potentially launching nuclear weapons
and ordering staff to ignore all orders except Milley’s, a new book
entitled “Peril” by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa revealed, as
reported by
on Tuesday.

Prior to taking action, Milley had multiple phone calls with China’s top
general and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The two journalists wrote that Milley “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 was reportedly concerned the president could “go rogue.”

In the secret meeting, Milley ordered the officials in charge of the
National Military Command Center not to take orders from anyone except him.

“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And
I’m part of that procedure,” Milley ordered, according to the book. The
general then moved around the room and received verbal confirmation from
each person.

“Got it?” Milley asked, the book said. The authors wrote that Milley
considered the order “an oath.”

According to the book, Milley engaged in two back-channel phone calls with
China’s top general and promised he would warn the nation of an attack."
