Retired United States Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney explains why Speaker Pelosi is asking Pentagon officials to arrange a coup against President Trump.
"The President has that data."
In a YouTube video, retired Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney explains to a group of listeners why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went to Pentagon officials seeking to "remove Mr. Trump from his authorities as the commander in chief," as reported by the New York Times (NYT.
Pelosi contacted the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark A. Milley, on Friday about "available precautions" regarding President Trump and his access to military control and nuclear weapons launches.
Department of Defense (DOD) officials insisted that President Trump "is still commander in chief" and that "they cannot remove the president from the chain of command."
"That would amount to a military coup," the officials said.
In the video, Lt. Gen. McInerney says "[T]hey're trying to get [Trump] out on the 25th amendment or to impeach him. Why? Well, because on Wednesday they took Pelosi's laptop," adding "she's frantic."
McInerney was referring to Wednesday when the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. was sieged by demonstrators, some of whom were confirmed to be extremist members of Antifa and BLM.
The General continues to explain that among the fray "there were special forces mixed with Antifa" who "took [Pelosi's] laptop." Video from the Capitol Building on the 6th shows two men running down a flight of stairs alleged to be these special operators.
Lt. Gen. McInerney goes on to ask why Pelosi and her colleagues are so frantic to out President Trump if he's "only got 12 days, or whatever it is to the 20th. Why worry about it? Just let him go out."
"No. They are terrified," he said.
