(Republican Insider) – Jennifer Griffin, a National Security Correspondent for Fox News, is now reporting that the Pentagon is saying Gen. Mark Milley “reviewed lawful launch procedures” after receiving a phone call from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a move that only further confirms this man committed a brazen act of treason.
According to a new report from BizPacReview, Griffin posted a tweet saying, “Pentagon officials: Gen Milley did not try to insert himself in the chain of command regarding the launch of nuclear weapons, but he made sure everyone knew what their roles were and what they weren’t. They reviewed lawful launch procedures following Pelosi phone call.”
“I am told that Gen Milley had 2 routine calls with his Chinese counterpart and more than a dozen calls with NATO allies after Jan 6 to reassure them the US government was stable and to reassure China that the US did not plan a surprise attack, an effort to avoid misunderstanding,” she went on to say in a different tweet.
This latest controversy involving Milley is popping up just as a book by reporters Bob Woodward and Bob Costa is coming out, in which they wrote about the general, who is also the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, instructing military officials not to obey any orders they receive from anyone unless they come through him first.
The order was intended to bypass President Donald Trump due to what Milley called “erratic behavior.” Milley then had to phone conversations with a Chinese general in order to assure him that he wouldn’t allow their country to be “surprised” by a U.S. attack while Trump was in the White House.

“You never know what a president’s trigger point is,” Milley went on to tell his senior staff, according to Woodward and Costa’s new tome.
“In response, 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 reported.
“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley said to the officers, according to the claims made in the new book. Milley then went around the room, looked every officer in the eye, and asked them to give a verbal confirmation that they understood.
“This report claims Milley pledged to alert his CCP counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack, quoting Milley as saying: ‘General Li, you & I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise,'” journalist Jerry Dunleavy from the DC Examiner posted on Twitter.

Back in January, a report from Red State noted that Speaker Pelosi had a phone conversation with Milley to push him to go around Trump and to prevent him from being able to take military action. This indicates that Pelosi herself was also behind the general’s calls to China warning them about President Trump.
“What I’m saying to you is that if they couldn’t even stop him from an assault on the Capitol, who even knows what else he may do? And is there anybody in charge at the White House who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this?” Pelosi is alleged to have said in the call according to reports by CNN.
The speaker went on to add, “You know he’s crazy. He’s been crazy for a long time.”
“Madam Speaker, I agree with you on everything,” Milley is alleged to have replied.
“Following that call, Milley ostensibly took it upon himself to take action against Trump. He ordered his top service chiefs to watch everything “all the time.” He called the director of the National Security Agency, Paul Nakasone, and advised him, “Needles up … keep watching, scan.” He also allegedly told then-CIA Director Gina Haspel, “Aggressively watch everything, 360,” BPR’s report states.
What in the f*cking hell?!
Pelosi needs to be questioned along with Milley.

Many folks have said that Milley’s conduct is an act of pure treason. There are now a number of high-profile conservatives who are demanding that Milley resign from his post or be court-martialed if the accusations against him turn out to be true. Others have suggested Joe Biden should fire him.
“I write with grave concern regarding recent reporting that General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, worked to actively undermine the sitting Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and contemplated a treasonous leak of classified information to the Chinese Communist Party in advance of a potential armed conflict with the People’s Republic of China (PRC),” Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in a letter he wrote to Biden.
“These actions by General Milley demonstrate a clear lack of sound judgment, and I urge you to dismiss him immediately,” he continued.
“According to this account, our country’s top defense official secretly colluded with our chief military rival to undercut the elected President of the United States. How do you describe this? ‘Deep state’ isn’t strong enough. It’s treason. It’s a crime. And apparently, Mark Milley isn’t the only person implicated in it. Others knew it was happening,” Fox host Tucker Carlson stated.
Trump himself has already weighed in on the alleged actions taken by Milley. He recently conducted an interview with Sean Spicer from Newsmax, saying, “For him to say that I was going to attack China is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard and everybody knows it, and I have to tell you, I don’t know if they have him on tape saying this but I found Woodward and I found his cohorts to be extremely dishonorable people, that’s why I didn’t do an interview with him.”
“I think he’s highly overrated,” Trump went on to say about Woodward, “this guy’s one of the most overrated guys, he’s a sleaze.”
President Trump then said that if all of this is true, Milley should be charged with treason.

“If the story of “Dumbass” General Mark Milley…is true, then I assume he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have been dealing with his Chinese counterpart behind the President’s back and telling China that he would be giving them notification “of an attack.” pic.twitter.com/bLCfFhNPgA

If Gen.Milley calling his Chinese counterpart was just a normal & regular communication then why are those calls now newsworthy?
If the account of those calls in a new book is accurate these calls were neither regular nor heroic.
They were treacherous and dangerous. pic.twitter.com/7SCD6llO5a

I call this a BS cover story. And even if it’s true, it’s bad. He calls a meeting because the crazy speaker of the house claims she is worried about something that was not even mentioned by anyone in the administration. He should be court martialed and stripped of his retirement.

Pathetic cover, he should be tried and sentenced.

It was Treason, Jen, and everyone knows it. Drunk lady was in on it too.

So the Pentagon is part of the coup, helping to cover up the coup and on China’s payroll as well! Noted!

My bet is that the Pentagon lawyers have spun the story to protect Milley whose actions are questionable at best
— FerrariGirl (@ferrarigirl1) September 14, 2021
Milley has, of course, denied everything. Liars are going to lie, right?
A complete and thorough investigation and evaluation of the current evidence needs to be done and if things turn out to be authentic, and at this juncture there’s no reason to think they won’t, then the general needs to be charged with treason. Period.
