General Milley is being pilloried in the press for allegedly talking to his Chinese counterpart in the crazy days after the January 6, 2021 insurrection and prior to the inauguration of our current president. Some say the general committed treason. Treason is attacking one’s own country. It’s attempting to overthrow the government of our country. General Milley was merely living up the the oath of allegiance which all members of our armed forces and members of congress, members of the judiciary and executive branch take upon entering service.
“I, __, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/5/3331
General Milley was living up to that oath of office by refusing to cooperate in the invalidation of the 2020 presidential election. It is not treason to support the rule of law in this republic. Fomenting an insurrection on January 6, 2021 and endangering our elected representatives and the capitol police comes closer to the definition of treason. Thank you for your service General.
