Cheney Apologizes to Milley

During a House Armed Services Committee hearing about the U.S.’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy) apologized for her fellow Republicans’ “despicable questioning” of Gen. Mark Milley.

“My Republican colleagues would have the American people believe that the General’s efforts to undermine former President Trump were a violation of his duty to the Commander-in-Chief,” Cheney said. “Well, when the Commander-in-Chief was Donald Trump the only sane thing for a patriot to do was to oppose him in any way possible.”

“Gen. Milley’s covert machination with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) to circumvent the chain of command was a valiant attempt to stop a madman from destroying the country,” Cheney asserted. “Likewise, the General’s efforts to seek military assistance from China in case it was needed to thwart an unprovoked US attack on that country was both courageous and prudent.”

“The real threat to this country comes from the right-wing lunatics who put Trump into office in the 2016 election,” Cheney declared. “These lunatics are the ones who tried to overthrow our democracy on January 6. They are the ones we need to counter with every resource we have. This includes the skills of a general like Milley who can lead our troops to victory over the enemy within.”

In related news, Press Secretary Jen Psaki explained the disparity in treatment between Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller and Gen. Milley—one is in prison and the other is giving interviews to book authors—as “a matter of sovereign prerogative. The President has an absolute right to discipline the members of the armed forces as he sees fit. In his eyes, Lt. Col. Scheller’s criticism of our withdrawal from Afghanistan—calling our extraordinary success a fiasco—was a blatant lie. In contrast, he felt Gen. Milley’s betrayal of former president Trump was fully warranted. Congress showed it approves of the disparate treatment by rejecting a Republican proposal that would have freed Scheller.”
