How do you sit on a story about the Joint Chiefs of Staff preparing for a coup by an outgoing president? Maybe I'm being an old-fashioned reporter, but that seems like news Americans should know about the moment it's confirmed.
It’s amazing that the entire conservative ecosystem was saying any coup concern was derangement meanwhile the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is comparing it to Reichstag.
By far the worst miss of the decade and literally none of them have apologized or rethought their posture https://t.co/lYTGDApj7p
“Milley described ‘a stomach-churning’ feeling as he listened to Trump’s untrue complaints of election fraud, drawing a comparison to the 1933 attack on Germany’s parliament building that Hitler used as a pretext to establish a Nazi dictatorship.”
Nobody had better ever give me any shit again for having compared Trump to Hitler. It turns out the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs said the same damn thing.
This story is a must read and should make every patriotic American vomit. It is essential that General Milley be called before the House Armed Forces Committee and be put under oath. The American people have a right to this information. Terrifying https://t.co/iivbM9lITY
The guy who wants to be Republican Speaker of the House - and almost the whole GOP caucus - backs the Big Lie on behalf of the guy that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff compared to Hitler in the lengths he was willing to go to seize power. That’s where we’re at.
So it was almost a coup and we almost lost democracy and no one is going to hold Trump or the involved republicans accountable because why exactly? https://t.co/cGjzul6mLg
Seems like there’s a straight line running thru the Joint Chiefs fear of a Trump coup after election & on into what happened in Jan. 6. https://t.co/HBzu0DzPyP
When the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff compares Trump to Hitler, that is nothing to gloss over.
General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, thought Trump might attempt a coup after the election. He and other military brass were prepared to stop it.
He explicitly and repeatedly compared Trump to Hitler, and MAGA activists to brownshirts.

"To hear general Milley say this … is stunning," she says of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Milley's reported pledge at the time to thwart any at any illegal coup attempt.
The Speaker of the House @SpeakerPelosi
called the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after Trump was defeated and poisoning our democracy with lies. She was concerned about Trump launching a Nuclear attack. Gen. Milley, according to the @washingtonpost
, responded by saying (1
This furthers the suspicion that Trump purposely didn’t allow Nat’l Guard & other federal agencies to help secure the Capitol on Jan 6th.
He wanted it &enjoyed it.
Joint Chiefs chairman feared potential ‘Reichstag moment’ aimed at keeping Trump in power https://t.co/e1xuaBLpOR
with the details …. Joint Chiefs were afraid tfg would try a coup. Milley saw tfg as Hitlerian and feared a “Reichstag moment” …
Milley described “a stomach-churning” feeling as he listened to Trump’s untrue complaints of election fraud. “This is a Reichstag moment,” Milley told aides, according to the book. “The gospel of the Führer.”
General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, likened Trump's effort to hold onto power after the 2020 election to Adolf Hitler, saying he was preaching 'the gospel of the Führer' with his lies about the election being stolen. https://t.co/44ao5clDv4
“‘This guy’s crazy,’ Pelosi said of Trump in what the book reported was mostly a one-way phone call. ‘He’s dangerous. He’s a maniac.’”
Trump, the guy who tried to stage an authoritarian coup to stay in power, and is compared to Hitler buy our Joint Chiefs of Staff, has the full and unwavering support of the current @GOPLeader
Kevin McCarthy. That should scare you quite a bit.
New via CNN: The top US military officer, Chair of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley, was so shaken that Trump might attempt a coup that Milley and others planned ways to stop Trump, per new Rucker-Leonnig book.

Gen. Milley had a “stomach churning” realization that Trump might attempt a coup, and he personally could be the nation’s last line of defense. Chilling article, worth reading from, “I Alone Can Fix It.” https://t.co/gDztzqhlaN
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is a left-wing Blue Anon conspiracy nut job. For the sake of national security, Gen. Milley must resign.
Bolton thought the public didn’t need to know about Trump’s Ukraine scheme.
Woodward thought the public didn’t need to know Trump was lying about COVID.
Leonnig and Rucker thought the public didn’t need to know the Chair of the Joint Chiefs feared a coup.
Until they could profit.
Joint Chiefs of Staff believed Trump was trying to stage a coup.
Congress felt no need to investigate the insurgency he incited on January 6th to stop certification of the election.
He is running again.
Time for the arrest and trial of Donald J. Trump and his accomplices.
