The goons and hayseeds who assaulted the Capitol on January 6th have given the Left carte blanche to accuse Republicans of insurrection. Another wonderful consequence of the populist bacillus. But unbeknownst to most, the real prospective insurrection happened two days after January 6th, as Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California bypassed the military chain of command and made an appeal to Army General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to take action against President Trump.
A politician with no actual place in the national security chain of command attempting to give orders to the nation’s top military officer. That is as close to an insurrection as this nation has ever seen. And now both the Pentagon and Pelosi are trying to cover up the call. That’s why Judicial Watch is suing.
FNC: “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January phone call with U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — in which Pelosi raised concerns about what she described as an ‘unhinged’ President Trump — is now the subject of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. Watchdog group Judicial Watch announced its legal action this week, saying the call between the House speaker and the nation’s top military officer – regarding the powers of a sitting president – set a “dangerous precedent” that could affect future presidencies. The group said its Jan. 11 request for information regarding the Jan. 8 call between Pelosi and Milley received no response from the Department of Defense.”

“This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike,” Pelosi wrote. “The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.” Later, she added: “As you know, there is growing momentum around the invocation of the 25th Amendment, which would allow the Vice President and a majority of the Cabinet to remove the President for his incitement of insurrection and the danger he still poses,” Pelosi wrote. “Yesterday, Leader Schumer and I placed a call with Vice President Pence, and we still hope to hear from him as soon as possible with a positive answer as to whether he and the Cabinet will honor their oath to the Constitution and the American people.”
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said that if Pelosi’s description of the call with Milley is true, their discussion “sets a dangerous precedent that could undermine the president’s role as commander in chief and the separation of powers.” It does more than that. It is a power mad Pelosi attempt to influence the military to take an active role in national politics. And that, is insane.
