In the wake of reports that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley made treasonous “secret” talks to his counterpart in communist China while President Donald Trump was in office, former National Security Adviser John Bolton, the mustached, warmonger swamp creature, defended Milley.
“His patriotism is unquestioned,” Bolton said, going on to justify the general’s possible treason because he was under pressure. John Bolton backs Gen. Milley: “Mark Milley is a staunch supporter of the Constitution and the rule of law. His patriotism is unquestioned.”
Bolton’s haste to defend his former colleague may have had some meaning in the past, but not any longer. Not after Bolton falsified intel to initiate wars, nearly sabotaged Afghan negotiations by rejecting meetings with Taliban leaders, and wrote his Trump administration tell-all in which he plays the hero of every chapter and everyone who disagrees with him is a moron.
Instead of clearing Milley’s name, Bolton’s defense serves as a reminder of how widespread corruption has become. It indicates that at the highest levels of our administration, elites are willing to go behind the president’s back to cover for one another.
