Pelosi-Milley Phone Call About ‘Unhinged’ Trump Is Target of Judicial Watch Lawsuit

Press Release:

    From Fox News:

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's January phone call with U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — in which Pelosi raised concerns about what she described as an "unhinged" President Trump — is now the subject of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit.
  • Watchdog group Judicial Watch announced its legal action this week, saying the call between the House speaker and the nation's top military officer — regarding the powers of a sitting president — set a "dangerous precedent" that could affect future presidencies.
  • The group said its Jan. 11 request for information regarding the Jan. 8 call between Pelosi and Milley received no response from the Department of Defense.
  • Soon after the phone call, which ocurred two days after the riot at the U.S. Capitol, Pelosi described the purpose of the conversation in a letter to her Democratic colleagues.
  • "This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike," Pelosi wrote. "The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy."
