Trump Calls Allies to Demand Gen. Mark Milley Be 'Arrested' for 'Treason'

The former president hit the phones, and then went on his former press secretary’s Newsmax show to make the case himself.

In the afternoon hours on Tuesday, following reports that then-President Donald Trump’s top military adviser had formulated secret plans in case the commander in chief went “rogue” after the Jan. 6 riot, the ex-president picked up the phone and rang up several close associates and TV-prone political allies. According to two people familiar with the matter, the twice-impeached former president was sounding testy and had a simple request:

He wanted his prominent supporters to go on television and in public this week to declare that Gen. Mark Milley should be “arrested” for “treason.”

They followed his orders as various MAGA-faithful pundits and Trumpy candidates—including Ohio U.S Senate candidate Josh Mandel, Trump-aligned TPUSA frontman Charlie Kirk, and several former Trump officials—dutifully echoed the “treason” charge on social media.

And by Tuesday evening, the twice-impeached former U.S. president was on a Newsmax show co-hosted by his former White House using the T-word.

“I've had so many calls today saying that's treason,” Trump told Newsmax hosts Sean Spicer and Lyndsay Keith. Later in the evening, the former president released a written statement through his office, calling him “‘Dumbass’ General Mark Milley,” adding that if the reporting is accurate, “I assume he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have been dealing with his Chinese counterpart behind the President’s back and telling China that he would be giving them notification ‘of an attack.’”

8. And who will be the unlucky schlub

To have to tell TFG what Milley did was NOT treason, but what he (TFG) did on 1/6 was … anyone?
Lindsay …. Jordan? …. McTurtle ??

anyone ? Jared ?

Attempting a coup is treason. Trying to prevent it is not.

17. Only Trump

Only Trump would get away with calling a military general a “dumbass” and say hed never do an interview with Woodward when there’s audio of him doing an interview with Woodward from 2020.

I demand Twice Impeached Ex-President Donald Trump be taken to the Coast Guard Academy and hanged from the yardarm of the USCGC Eagle for putting America into a position where the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had to call the Chinese and prepare them for a possible attack.

21. There you go

The more volatile the reaction, the truer the report. I wonder who made those "so many calls" the former guy claims he got? Amelia Earhart? Judge Crater? Shorty Shea? Any toughguy who came up to him with tears in his eyes and asked, "Sir, I know this can't be true!" or something else appropriately maudlin?

They can all go straight to fucking hell. Nothing they say matters or is worth listening to. In fact, I think they all belong in prison for actual treason, and should probably be executed.

25. Treason! He was PREPARING people to disobey an INSANE order by me!

So sad for right-wing authoritarians everywhere, who demand unquestioned obedience even before an actual event happens.



Sorry, Trump, but preparing everyone to disobey an insane order is NOT the same as actual disobedience.

27. This is why tRump should have been charged immediately following the insurrection

The longer the AG waits, the more it will seem like retaliation for tRump's recent comments and actions. Do we have a rule of law in this country? Lock him the fuck up. Now. Stop with the racist double standards of who gets held accountable!
