Gen. Milley Makes A Jarring Confession – He Admits He Leaked Inside Information About Trump To Journalists

Right now, Gen. Mark Milley is one of the most controversial figures in Washington. His recent testimony concerning President Joe Biden and the Afghanistan debacle turned plenty of heads.

But his relationship with former POTUS Donald Trump also continues to be a hot topic. For instance, his call to China remains one of the most widely discussed news items in recent weeks.

And now, it seems Milley could be in Trump’s dog house yet again.

Trump’s presidency is one of the most fiery and intriguing in recent memory, so of course, certain people are looking to make money off those four years.

This includes several journalists who have penned books about Trump’s reign in D.C. Unsurprisingly, those books aren’t exactly complimentary.

But how did they get the information they needed for the books? Wouldn’t they have needed high-rankings contacts on Capitol Hill?

Well, they did — and one of them was evidently Gen. Milley.

Milley admitted as much when being interviewed by Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and it’s likely that Trump won’t be pleased with the General’s confession.

From Breitbart:

Gen. Mark Milley confirmed Tuesday he leaked extensive details of President Donald Trump’s presidency to several journalists writing books about his administration.

Milley didn’t just speak to one reporter, either.

As it turns out, he spoke to the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward for his book “Peril,” and both Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Phil Rucker for their book, “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year.”

Then Milley dished out some info to Michael Bender for the book, “Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost.”

Obviously, he was willing to hand out this information to journalists, and probably without Trump knowing.

He even spoke to Woodward about reassuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He told her he’d prevent Trump from launching a nuclear weapon after the Jan. 6 riots.

To many, it seems highly unlikely that Trump would’ve done any such thing, and it probably only gave Pelosi and the Democrats more ammunition to accuse Trump of inciting violence.

Sen. Blackburn asked Gen. Milley if the accounts in the books are accurate.

Milley responded by saying he hadn’t read any of them and when Blackburn suggested he do so, he said, “Absolutely. Happy to do that.”

The Donald Trump administration will always have its critics, and it’ll be interesting to see if he decides to run for President again in 2024. Right now, it looks like he’s leaning in that direction.

But he might have a problem with a high-ranking General handing out inside information to journalists — we expect Trump to respond to this at some point.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gen. Mark Milley admitted to giving reporters details about former President Donald Trump.
  • These details were then put in several books, though Milley says he hasn’t read any of them.
  • Trump probably won’t like the fact that Milley dished out explicit information, and likely without the President knowing.
