The D.C. swamp continues to protect its own.
While speaking to reporters from the White House, Joe Biden was asked about the explosive new book that alleges that General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, held secret meetings behind Donald Trump’s back and even secretly told leaders not to take military strike or nuclear orders from Trump days after the Jan. 6 incident at the U.S. Capitol.
Biden made it clear that he’s standing by Milley and did not make any mention of him resigning.
“Sir, did General Milley do the right thing, sir? Did General Milley do the right thing?” a reporter asked.
Biden replied: “I have great confidence in General Milley.”

Two days after the January 6 incident at the Capitol, Milley took an extraordinary step. He took secret action to talk to military leaders and told them not to take military strike or nuclear orders from Trump, CNN reported.
