“What prompted her call were concerns about the president’s stability or mental health,” they said. “She even said on the phone, ‘You know he’s crazy, don’t you?’ She reportedly said, General Milley, you agree with her.”
“You said: I agree 100 percent with everything you said,” the transcript read.

Milley helps Pelosi fight Trump from the inside
For readers of Inside Politics, there aren’t many truly shocking testimonies. Milley was known to have been on the path to committing acts of treason long before January 8th.
Shockingly, the nation saw the literal rebellion in the testimony without even blinking.
The conversation between Pelosi and Milley came while Trump was still in office, with a military leader assuring a political party that the U.S. president would not take military action to protect the country if he saw fit.
That is Extraordinary, Mr. Costa.
In many ways, the tweet captured Trump’s biggest problem. Anyone in their right mind knows Trump won’t launch nukes, and the focus here should be on Milley’s betrayal.but for @CBS News Like many others, he is an unstable slob. https://t.co/yG8GM8Vpxr

“If they want to put me in jail, so be it”
To some, fighting the president from within while swearing to disobey the commander-in-chief amounts to treason.
based on an excerpt from a book political insider Milley reportedly vowed last summer to fight then-President Trump “from the inside” in 2020 and dared those who opposed his actions to arrest him.
That was long, long before the so-called uprising.
After the decision to evict rioters from Lafayette Square during a protest in June 2020, Milley allegedly told his staff: “Fuck it.” “I’m going to fight him. “
“If they want to court-martial me, or put me in jail, so be it,” Milley continued. “But I will fight from within.”
Milley chose not to resign, staying on and resisting efforts to politicize the military.
“Fuck it,” he told his staff. “I’m only going to fight him.” He added: “If they want to court-martial me, or put me in jail, so be it. But I’m going to fight from within.”

Milley’s disdain for Trump that summer wasn’t the only time he was accused of being a deep state agent.
milley, according to a book title Danger Published in September 2021, Assure General Li Zuocheng of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army that the US military will not strike the communist country.
Perhaps most surprising of all was the indication that Milley was willing warn China, if an attack is under way.
“General Lee, you and I have known each other for five years. If we are going to attack, I will call you ahead of time,” he allegedly said. “It won’t be a surprise.”
Leaking secrets to the enemy used to be a punishable crime.Take their side, well, this used to be all American.
Wait a moment. Millais told his Chinese counterparts that he would warn him of an impending attack? Wow.
“General Li, you and I have known each other for five years. If we are going to attack, I will call you in advance. It will not be a surprise.”https://t.co/ZbdHqYbEpS

Milley’s actions could easily have prompted China to launch military action against the United States first, perhaps out of fear that top U.S. military officials believed that President Trump was insane enough to give the green light for an attack.
general speaking – He could have started a real war between the nuclear powers.
We now know that Trump would not have responded in the first place because Milley and Pelosi colluded as if they were running the country behind their backs.

Aside from his rebellious behavior during the Trump administration, Milley was instrumental in both the failed withdrawal from Afghanistan and the stay billions of dollars A US military weapon worthy of the Taliban’s seizure of control.
The question remains, why is this person still employed, let alone not “court-martialed or jailed” for various acts?
