Thread: President Biden's first year in office

    Milley has already confirmed the accuracy of the story, and doubled down, with the Administration coming to his defense. Their explanation? Orange man bad.
    White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki struck back at Mr. Trump, urging reporters to consider the context of the alleged calls.

    “Beyond reports in this book, there’s been widespread reporting and commentary from members of his own cabinet—the former president’s cabinet—including high-ranking national-security officials, questioning the former president’s stability, his behavior, and his suitability to oversee the national security of the United States,” she said.

    A spokesman for Gen. Milley acknowledged the calls had taken place. Such calls to military counterparts are routine and vital to improving mutual understanding, reducing tensions and “providing clarity and avoiding unintended consequences or conflict,” said the spokesman, Army Col. Dave Butler.

    “His calls with the Chinese and others in October and January were in keeping with these duties and responsibilities conveying reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability,” Col. Butler said in a statement.

    I guess treasonous behavior is ok if you personally disagree with the President. At the very least, Milley should be fired since he refused to resign. Bear in mind people have been convicted of treason for less than what Milley has confirmed he would personally volunteer to do.

Tuttle sentenced Stephan to death by hanging.[16] He was the first man convicted and sentenced to death on a federal treason charge since the Civil War.

    Feeding escaped POW = Death
    Secretly calling a hostile foreign power on more than one occasion to reassure them of any US military plans and that you’ll give advance notice in case of attack = Totally cool.

    After four years of seething about Trump’s imperviousness to the law and to basic norms of presidential behavior, Team Biden has routinely placed the personal and political interests of its membership above the law and above the national interest. It would be reasonable to conclude that America’s national security is compromised from within, since the Administration has confirmed officials may or may not betray the country to foreign enemies if they feel like it. America’s darkest period since the height of the Cold War continues apace.

    Confirming that the calls took place isn't the same as confirming their content. Experience suggests that Woodward's telling of events is dramatized to feed his liberal readership's preconceptions about Trump as the maniac with his finger on the red button. All this publicity won't be hurting his pocket either.

    To my knowledge, Woodward provided direct quotes, and Milley’s team confirming the dates and nature of the calls is enough to corroborate, unless Woodward flat out lied about/deliberately misquoted Milley. What I haven’t seen is quotes from Trump that would corroborate Milley’s belief he had to do what he did. Even if there were, it’s difficult to imagine anything that could justify it.
