Gen. Mark Milley Dissuaded Trump Officials from Trying to Court-Martial Trump’s Critics

HeadlineJan 05, 2023

Back in the United States, newly released documents reveal the Pentagon’s top general had to dissuade senior Trump administration officials from attempting to court-martial retired military officers who wrote editorials critical of Donald Trump. That’s one of dozens of new revelations from testimony by Joint Chiefs Chair General Mark Milley to the House January 6 committee made public this week in a 300-page transcript. Among other revelations: General Milley ordered his staff to preserve what he called “boatloads” of documents about the January 6 attack for future investigations. And Milley told Congress there were “indications” that Trump was contemplating issuing unlawful orders to the military.
