Wednesday on MSNBC’s The Beat, hate-mongering radical Rep. Ted Lieu said traitorous Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was doing his duty by taking steps to not follow an illegal order in the final days of Donald Trump’s presidency.
Asked about Bob Woodward and Robert Costa’s forthcoming book claim that Milley took steps to prevent Trump from launching nuclear weapons and called his counterpart in China to assure our enemy that he would alert them to an imminent attack, Lieu replied, “I previously served in active duty as a JAG. What General Milley was referring to was a rogue nuclear launch. That would be an illegal order. Military members do not carry out legal orders. General Milley absolutely did the right thing by trying to prevent anybody from carrying out illegal orders.”
Fact check: Trump never issued or even threatened to issue such an order. Milley took it upon himself to commit treason simply because he was part of the Deep State hell-bent on undermining President Trump.
Lieu supports committing treason against a President whom he dislikes, and MSNBC framed the whole issue in a way that supports that treason.
