It’s been more than 24 hours since news broke that Gen. Mark Milley might have committed treason, and almost all Republican leaders on the House and Senate Armed Services Committees and Subcommittees have remained completely silent on the matter. Most of them won’t say whether they’ll call for the general’s resignation or termination if the reports of treason are true.

The Washington Post on Tuesday published a bombshell report about Milley from the forthcoming book “Peril” by the Post’s associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Bob Costa.

Out of hysteria that President Donald Trump might command an attack, the general also reportedly ordered senior military officers to review nuclear weapons protocols, telling them that while Trump could give the order, Milley had to be involved in the process.
