BOOK: Pelosi Helped Gen. Milley Subvert Trump’s Authority

'Is there anybody in charge at the White House who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this?...'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., allegedly played a key role in Gen. Mark Milley’s phonecall to his Chinese counterpart in which he assured the communist nation that former president Donald Trump would not “strike” them.

On the same day as Milley’s call to China, he reportedly met with Pelosi, where the two are believed to have discussed invoking the 25th Amendment and other ways to force Trump out of office.

Pelosi admitted to her Democrat colleagues that such a conversation took place in a Jan. 8 letter, saying she was in the process of discussing “precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.”

In their new book, “Peril,” reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa said they received a transcript of Pelosi’s conversation with Milley.

“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?” Pelosi allegedly said. “And is there anybody in charge at the White House who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this? You know he’s crazy. He’s been crazy for a long time.”

Milley allegedly responded, “Madam Speaker, I agree with you on everything.”

Milley has denied that his conversations with Pelosi and Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army were inappropriate, claiming they were “routine” and “perfectly within the duties and responsibilities” of his job.

However, he admitted he expects to speak more in depth about why he engaged in these discussions at the inevitable congressional hearings.

“I think it’s best that I reserve my comments on the record until I do that in front of the lawmakers who have the lawful responsibility to oversee the U.S. military,” Milley said. “I’ll go into any level of detail Congress wants to go into in a couple of weeks.”
