    Way overstepped, much worse than Haig in my opinion.

    He hasn’t denied it.

    Apparently he was authorized by the previous SecDef, but when he did it that SecDef was already replaced and had no knowledge of Miley’s actions

    What he did was more akin to the first steps of a military coup and that is not hyperbole….it’s textbook “how to stage a coup.”

    Treason is still the only offense on our books punishable by death by hanging.

    He should have his commission yanked and his discharge under less than honorable conditions and his pension tossed, at the very least….but we know that is not likely.

    I'm sure he'll be considered a "patriot".

    Probably so…a patriot General with more in common with Benedict Arnold than any other patriot in our History.

    He’s lost the respect of his troops…since he’s the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, that means the entire US military…including the Coast Guard.

    Why does any administration grant any access to Bob Woodward? Since he’s started writing his books they’ve been nothing but hatchet jobs and character assassinations on every subject…

    Because he exposed Watergate and I'm glad he did but as usual he became some sort of professional whistle blower and talking head book writer. Its close to extorsion with this guy. And hes like 90? Go lay on a beach and enjoy your time left here.

    Guaran-fucking-teed that Trump, in his unbridled arrogance, thought that Woodward would write a glowing tell all about the genius of Donald Trump. That's why he gave him access.

    So why does this idiot still have a job? Shit when is anybody who is associated with this admin going to lose their job.

    Granted Miley was around for Trump but he should be axed yesterday for skirting the chain of command. As much as people bitch about January 6th, you have a a General who was acting on his own. Without the authority of the President. Talk about treason. He admitted it. I don't care if the sitting president is Trump, Obama, GW all the way to Washington. You need civilian oversight of the military. He breached that. I don't care if it was Trump. He was president at the time and this guy circumvented his authority.

    This wasn't Crimson Tide where somebody was trying to save the world and did. Nothing was going to happen. Nothing was on the books. Trump likely was trying to figure out if he should be calling Stormy for a date.

    God if somebody did this to a sitting Democrat president heads would roll.

    He needs to go now asap. This is a very bad thing if true and by all indications it is. The military serves the president and congress. Not the military. I know they hate it but if you dont enforce that you get Dr Strangelove.

    He needs to resign or be fired.

    Whether or not it is good that he did, the simple fact is it sets a horrible precedent that he did. You can't have the JCOF circumventing civilian control, even when the head civilian is off his rocker. There were other avenues available to him.

    This is one of those instances that I am glad he did it, but he still needs to resign for it.

    Add the cluster F of the withdrawal (might not be his fault, but heavy wears the crown), now this.
    Agreed, though I would say that there were legal remedies if this is true.

    This goes to show that the 25th and impeachment were necessary but no one had the balls to actually carry it out.

    I don't see that happening. The Dems know how to distract, apologize, whatever it takes to clear things up. They'll still be blaming Trump at 2024 even if Trump isn't in the running.

    It's the Republicans that need to learn dirty politics from the Dems to ever get and keep power again. Dems are masters, the Republicans are pussies.

    Itís crazy that in different settings I can read this exact same post but with the opposite names put in, that Dems need to dirty up to match the Republicans and all Trump did was blame Obama.
