Ex-Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen: 'Incredibly disturbing' that military leadership reportedly feared Trump coup
[Yahoo via Job Vacancy] The current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, had bluntly described his concern that Trump would use America’s armed forces to overturn the 2020 election, according to excerpts released of an upcoming book, “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker.
Excerpt from Milley book:
"They may try, but they’re not going to f***ing succeed," Milley told his deputies of a possible coup, according to CNN’s account of the book, which will be released Tuesday. "You can’t do this without the military. You can’t do this without the CIA and the FBI. We’re the guys with the guns."
