According to a new book, General Milley held a secret meeting on January 8th undermining Trump.
He ordered his staff not to take orders from Trump unless he was involved.
Two days after the January 6th riot at the United States Capitol, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley secretly took action to keep President Donald Trump from ordering the use of nuclear weapons.
The revelations come to light in Bob Woodward’s new book “Peril.”
“You never know what a president’s trigger point is,” Milley reportedly told his staff.
According to CNN, who reviewed the book, Milley ‘called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office on January 8 to review the process for military action, including launching nuclear weapons. […] Milley instructed them not to take orders from anyone unless he was involved.’
Now, Milley has even lost Vindman.

In a surprise statement Tuesday afternoon, retired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman (US Army) strongly suggested that Gen. Mark Milley should resign as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Vindman was reacting to excerpts from a new book in which Milley is reported to have called a counterpart in China following his own conclusion that President Trump was unstable following the 2020 elections last November.
“If this is true, GEN Milley must resign,” tweeted Vindman, a former National Security Council staffer who testified before Congress about a phone call in which President Trump sought damaging information on Joe Biden from Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
His testimony provided one of the articles of impeachment against the then-President in 2020.
