Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley is on the wrong end of an attack after Republican senators call for his resignation over his interviews for authors.
According to Breitbart News, Milley’s interviews “dragged him into the center of politics despite a tradition of military leaders trying to stay apolitical.”
“I am trying to stay apolitical and I believe I am,” said Milley as he attempted to defend himself. “That’s part of my professional ethic, and I’m trying to keep the military, the actual military out of actual domestic politics. I think that’s critical.”
Rep. Ronny Jackson was not impressed.
“It has become abundantly clear that the American people have completely lost confidence in your ability to do your job. General Milley, will you now resign?” asked Jackson.
“I serve at the pleasure of the president, Mr. Jackson” responded Milley.
