Millie then planned one Joint resignation With other senior officials to make it clear that they will not accept the Trump conspiracy.
“They can try, but they won’t succeed,” Millie told her aides. “You can’t do this without the military. You can’t do this without the CIA and the FBI. We’re the ones with the guns,” he added.
The book, which came out next week, is a very confusing view of how Trump’s refusal to accept defeat was felt within the government.
Millie had already opposed Trump’s call to call on the military to counter anti-racist protests earlier this year.
Trump’s motivations, especially after the election, began to replace senior officials, including the Pentagon, with close supporters of the president, even though he had only been on duty for a few weeks, which led to suspicion against him.
“Millie told her team that she believes Trump was inciting a riot, believing that enforcing the law of the insurgency and calling in the military could be an exception,” the book says.

“If I’m going to make a conspiracy, one of the last people I want to do it with is General Mark Millie,” Trump said.
