Milley worked to actively undermine the sitting Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and contemplated a treasonous leak of classified information.
- “General Milley has attempted to rationalize his reckless behavior by arguing that what he perceived as the military’s judgement was more stable than its civilian commander,” he continued. “You must immediately dismiss General Milley. America’s national security and ability to lead in the world are at stake.”
- Vindman, a key witness in Trump’s first impeachment who the former president later called “very insubordinate,” said in a tweet that Milley should resign if the alleged phone calls took place. Vindman argued that the alleged phone calls “set an extremely dangerous precedent” that “you can’t simply walk away from.”
- “If this is true GEN Milley must resign,” tweeted Vindman. “He usurped civilian authority, broke Chain of Command, and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military.”
