Former Assistant Secretary of the Army: Milley’s Megalomania is a ‘Pattern of Behavior’

Milley should have been court martialed already.

A former assistant secretary of the Army under President Trump has accused top military officials Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army Gen. James McConville of engaging in a “pattern of behavior” that overstepped their authority and undermined potential commands from Trump.

In an interview with Fox News Digital, E. Casey Wardynski, a former assistant secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs under the Trump administration, accused high-ranking military officials Milley and McConville of making statements that insinuated they were calling the shots.

“These kind of behaviors and this willingness for military leaders to exceed their authorities and ignore authorities of the civilian officials appointed over them … positions under the Constitution and laws of the country was not something that came to them on Jan. 8,” Wardynski said. “It was something that they had done for a while.”

According to Wardynski, there were “stunning” instances in which he saw, firsthand, high-ranking military officials exceed their authority.

“It was in and around the riots in D.C.,” Wardynski said. “Gen. Milley, as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – first thing to know, is he is a staff officer, he is an adviser, he’s not a commander – he ordered elements of the 82nd Airborne and the 10th Mountain Division to fly overnight to D.C. to Fort Belvoir and Andrews without consulting the Army chain of command and reaching around the chain of command to do that. I know that for a fact.”

New revelations in a book by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa claim Milley made two phone calls to Chinese officials in fear that Trump would create conflict with the nation, telling the officials that he would forewarn about an attack planned by the U.S. on China. The book claims that Milley contacted his Chinese counterpart after he had reviewed intelligence that suggested Chinese officials believed the United States was planning an attack on China amid military exercises in the South China Sea.

Wardynski went on to detail two separate occasions when McConville told him that he “would not be obeying any illegal orders from the president” amid several violent riots across the nation in the summer of 2020, particularly in D.C.

“That’s not something in 30 years of service in that uniform I thought I’d ever hear,” Wardynski said. “My interpretation of that was he was talking about any use of the Insurrection Act by the president.”

The Insurrection Act of 1807 allows a president to deploy U.S. militarized forces and National Guard troops should there be extreme civil disobedience or an insurrection.

“There was a lot of talk about governors and mayors not enforcing the law,” he added, providing context to the nature of ongoing events at that time. “A lot of Secret Service agents were hurt at the White House, a lot of national guardsmen were hurt at the White House, at one point it was reported that they evacuated the president to the emergency operations center, and of course Milley ordered these two units flown to D.C.”

……Wardynski also stated that McConville, who served as Milley’s deputy during his time as chief of staff of the Army, seemingly “expected the cadets to demonstrate against the president” during the 2020 West Point graduation.

“He told me that if they did, he would not be a ‘prop’ for the president,” Wardynski said, adding that McConville’s comment referred to Trump’s walk to historic St. John’s Church with administration members and military officials, a move Milley, who accompanied Trump, said he considers a “mistake.”

Regarding Milley, Wardynski said he was a “bully” in meetings and insisted he would regularly overstep his authority to control the agenda, claiming that he and others, for some time, had no “intention of supporting” Trump.

……”Milley, in staff meetings, was routinely a bully. He would sit at the head of the table with the secretary, the secretary would say we’re going to do the following, and Milley would look at the gathered staff and tell them, ‘Let me tell you what the secretary just said’ and it was pretty much something different.”

Wardynski also noted that Milley, who he was around multiple times for meetings, went into his portfolio on multiple occasions without prior approval.

“He reached into my portfolio at least three times without my authority and then came to me for sort of forgiveness afterwards, which he did not get,” Wardynski said of Milley, whom he described as a “manipulator.”

The Woodward-Costa book also detailed a phone call conversation Milley had with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following the events on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol. According to a transcript obtained by authors, Milley vowed to Pelosi that “the nuclear triggers are secure” amid Trump’s exit from the White House.

According to the book, Milley “summoned senior officers to review the procedures for launching nuclear weapons, saying the president alone could give the order — but, crucially, that he, Milley, also had to be involved.”

Wardynski said Milley’s “business with the nuclear weapons and the nuclear command and control is part of a pattern of behavior.”


Milley has committed treason.

He should be charged under Article 88 and Article 84 of the UCMJ. He has a Napoleon complex and cannot be trusted to uphold the Constitution. When a U.S. military general says the United States military must remove a President by force and says,  “We’re the guys with the guns”, he presents a clear danger to the country and our democratic republic. This apparatchik is an out-of-control buffoon.
Milley is not a leader. He’s a politician in uniform; a leftwing demagogue pushing Marxist doctrine who is quick to belch “Nazi!” at brave people exercising their Constitutional right to protest and confront the corruption in D.C.
When you smear Americans who take a stand against Marxist indoctrination and lead a chorus of unhinged leftwing radicals screaming “white supremacy” and “racism”, you’ve shown that you have more ignorance than education. Wearing stars on your epaulets doesn’t guarantee you’re fit for leadership. Milley is in that category.
