In a phone call to the chairman, Gen. Mark A. Milley, Pelosi asked Pentagon leadership to “remove Mr. Trump from his authorities as the commander in chief.” That could be accomplished by ignoring the president’s orders or slowing them by questioning whether they were issued legally.
To his credit, General Milley at the Pentagon appears to have made no such commitments. Unless the cabinets invokes the 25th Amendment or congress convicts Mr. Trump through impeachment in both the house and senate, it is unconstitutional to defy legal orders from the commander in chief. Yet, Nancy Pelosi wants to do it anyway, and would do so if not checked by constitutional leadership.
“As long as President Trump is commander in chief, then one of the highest-priority missions the military has is maintaining connectivity between him and the nuclear arsenal, and I expect that is what they are doing and will continue to do until Inauguration Day,” said Peter D. Feaver, a professor of political science at Duke University who has studied the armed forces.
“This is a good example of people asking the military to solve a problem that is not the military’s to solve,” he added. “If Congress believes that President Trump should not have access to the nuclear codes, then Congress has the capacity to make that happen through impeachment.”
This gives you insight into the corrupted minds of establishment politicians. They do not care about the sanctity of the Constitution or the principles it uniquely enshrines for Americans. If you give them the power, they will seek to undermine every constitutional principle imaginable. It is quite reasonable to believe that people like Pelosi would seek to appoint generals who would allow them to commit such unconstitutional acts while, at the same time, trying to rewrite constitutional rules to codify their theft of America’s principles.
