Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, concerned then-President Donald Trump could “go rogue,” called a secret meeting at the Pentagon two days after the Jan. 6 incidents at the Capitol to limit Trump’s ability to launch nuclear weapons or order a dangerous military strike, according to a new book from journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
“You never know what a president’s trigger point is,” Gen. Milley told his members of his senior staff, the authors wrote in the new book “Peril,” noting Milley, who was shaken by the violence of that day, “was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election” and was “now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies,” CNN reported.
Milley told senior military officials in charge of the Pentagon’s war room Jan. 8, the National Military Command Center, they were not to take orders from anyone unless he was “part of the procedure.”
