Gen. Mark Milley took secret action to secure nukes from 'unstable' Trump after he lost the election and, Milley called China's top military leader to reassure the country Trump would not attack, new Bob Woodward book reveals. Milley's extraordinary efforts are detailed in “Peril”, a new book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa claims Miley told top military officials he was 'part of the procedure' on military actions.
Apparently, Miley called head of China's military two days after the Jan. 6th riot to reassure him, US was not about to attack. There was chatter that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs was concerned Trump might take rogue action to stay in office. 'We are on the way to a right-wing coup,' CIA Director Gina Haspel reportedly told Milley. 'This is bad, but who knows what he might do?'
Speaker Pelosi reportedly told him. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley took a series of extraordinary actions after the Jan. 6th Capitol riot because he was concerned an 'unstable' President Trump might undertake military action in a desperate bid to stay in office, according to Bob Woodward's bombshell new book.
The efforts included Milley as the top-ranking military officer meeting with top military officials in the Pentagon two days after the Capital riot and Milley telling the military to keep him in the process for all military actions, including the use of nuclear weapons. It also involved outreach to Milley's counterpart in the Chinese military to provide reassurances the US would not strike its rival, according to the book.
'If you get calls, no matter who they're from, there's a process here, there's a procedure. No matter what you are told, Milley commanded, “you do the procedure”. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure,' he told top US military officials inside the Pentagon's war room two days after the riot,' according to the book “Peril”, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
'You never know what a president's trigger point is,' Milley told them, according to the book, which relies on Woodward's well-established methods of relying on 'deep background' information provided sources, some of them anonymously, as well as documents and interviews, to attempt to reconstruct events and conversations. Milley claimed that he feared Trump was suffering 'serious mental decline'.
Milley told them, 'The strict procedures are explicitly designed to avoid inadvertent mistakes or accident or nefarious, unintentional, illegal, immoral, unethical launching of the world's most dangerous weapons.'
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army General Mark Milley phoned his Chinese counterpart to give reassurances two days after the Capitol riot and cautioned US military leaders amid fears Trump might attack to keep power.
'Got it?' Milley asked his team members. 'Yes, sir,' they replied, in an exchange Milley considered 'an oath.' Milley told CIA Director Gina Haspel: 'Aggressively watch everything, 360.' Just as stunning were Milley's reported actions that same date to the head of China's powerful military, to reassure his counterpart that the US was not going to attack China and set off a clash with a major nuclear power.
His message, despite his own doubts about Trump's mental state, was that 'everything's fine.'
'Things may look unsteady,' Milley told Gen. Li Zuocheng. 'But that's the nature of democracy, General Li. We are 100 percent steady. Everything's fine. But democracy can be sloppy sometimes.'
Milley was concerned Trump might go rogue, having run out of legal options to stay in office. Trump had called the election 'rigged' and spoke at a rally before the reports of anarchists ransacking the Capitol. It was Milley's second call to his counterpart in the final months of the Trump administration. US intelligence concluded the Chinese believed Trump might launch a military strike in order create a basis to stay in power, after an election Trump called out as fraudulent, despite a series of court and procedural defeats that had him running out of options.
Milley had earlier called Li in October amid ongoing tensions over the South China Straight, and Trump's rhetoric targeting China. Milley feared Trump might seek to use such an attack to achieve a Reichstag fire type incident, where he would cite the dangerous new situation to cling to power. Milley afterward concluded Li was 'unusually rattled.' Milley even promised his counterpart there would be no surprises.
They had reportedly established relations through a backchannel. 'General Li, you and 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,' Milley reportedly told him.
That revelation has infuriated Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Rubio wrote President Biden demanding he dismiss Milley 'immediately.' Rubio pens this statement: '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'. 'These actions by General Milley demonstrate a clear lack of sound judgement, and I urge you to dismiss him immediately.'
Rubio added: 'General Milley has attempted to rationalize his reckless behavior by arguing that what he perceived as the military's judgement as more stable than its civilian commander. It is a dangerous precedent that could be asserted at any point in the future by General Milley or others. It threatens to tear apart our nation's longstanding principle of civilian control of the military.'
The book quotes Milley expressing concerns Trump might launch a strike that could lead to war. Trump campaigned repeatedly ending Middle East wars he called a waste, and negotiated a departure date with the Taliban in Afghanistan before leaving office. 'I continually reminded him, depending on where and what you strike, you could find yourself at war,' the book quotes Milley as saying of Trump.
A president can only initiate a nuclear strike through a complex procedure that involves multiple layers of officials, coordinated through the National Military Command Center. Miley claims the military did not want an incident to set off a war with the major nuclear power.
In this newly released book, we learn Milley also spoke to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had publicly raised her own fears about Trump's access to nuclear weapons immediately after the riot, which came on a day Congress met to count the electoral votes to make Joe Biden president. 'This is bad, but who knows what he might do?' Pelosi said. 'He's crazy. You know he's crazy. He's been crazy for a long time. So don't say you don't know what his state of mind is.' Milley responded, according to the book: ' Madam Speaker. I agree with you on everything.'
Pelosi told him: '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?'
Milley's efforts to give himself the opportunity to potentially head off a strike or a war appears to have been triggered by his call with Pelosi. According to the transcript, she asked him 'what precautions are available to prevent an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or from accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike?' Milley then vouched for 'a lot of checks in the system.'
Haspel had raised her own concerns after Trump refused to accept the results of the November election. 'We are on the way to a right-wing coup. The whole thing is insanity. He is acting out like a six-year-old with a tantrum,' she told him. 'This is a highly dangerous situation. We are going to lash out for his ego?' she told Milley in a call.
The maneuvering came at a time after Milley had first accompanied Trump during his infamous photo-op shortly before authorities cleared protesters from Lafayette Square during Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020. He then apologized for having participated in the event in uniform. 
Meanwhile, A U.S. Army lieutenant colonel garnered viral attention after he submitted his resignation paperwork, citing what he called the “Marxist takeover of the military.”
Lt. Col. Paul Douglas Hague, stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, submitted his resignation on August 30, according to his letter shared online last week by his wife, Katie Phipps Hague. “After eighteen years of active-duty service in the US Army, my lieutenant colonel husband has resigned. He’s walking away from all he’s worked for and believed in since he was an ROTC kid at UGA. He’s walking away from his retirement. His resignation memo:”
“First, and foremost, I am incapable of subjecting myself to the unlawful, unethical, immoral and tyrannical order to sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgment,” Hague wrote in his resignation letter as part of his reasoning for resigning. “It is impossible for this so-called 'vaccine' to have been studied adequately to determine the long-term effects.”
Hague’s resignation letter goes on to describe “a complete lack of confidence in the presidential administration and secretaries directing the military” and “what I view as an ideologically Marxist takeover of the military and the United States government at their upper echelons.”
Hague’s allegation of a Marxist takeover in the military comes after months of complaints about the introduction of racially charged reading materials and trainings throughout the military. In March, Sen. Ted Cruz raised concerns the military is “being systematically undermined for the sake of leftwing ideology.”
On Tuesday, Hague confirmed his resignation. He said his resignation process has begun and that he continues to stand by what he said in his resignation letter. Task & Purpose reported on Monday that the Army would not comment on the authenticity of the resignation letter.
“I would like nothing more than to continue in the Army to reach my 20 years of active federal service and retire with my pension,” Hague’s letter adds. “However, I instead will join those who have served before me in pledging my Life, my Fortune, and my Sacred Honor to continue resisting the eternal and ever-mutable forms of oppression and tyranny – both from enemies outside our nation‘s borders, and those within.” 
"It is impossible to conceal from ourselves or the world what has been before observed, that endeavors have been employed to foster and establish a division between the Government and people of the United States. To investigate the causes which have encouraged this attempt is no
