(JustPatriots.com)- On Monday the Star News Network confirmed their previous report that General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was charged with driving under the influence almost forty years ago.
Last week the Star obtained both the arrest report and court records from the incident which took place in North Carolina’s Cumberland County on November 19, 1982. While charged with a DUI, Milley was found guilty of a lesser charge – driving the wrong way on a one way street – for which he paid a one hundred dollar fine plus a $31 court fee.
The DUI arrest happened about two years after Milley was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the armor branch. At the time of the incident, Milley was with A Company, 4th Battalion, 68th Armored Regiment, 82 Airborne Division out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina in Cumberland County.
Earlier that same year, Milley was cited for a vehicle inspection violation, but it was waived by the Cumberland County court clerk in June 1982.
The Star reports that alcohol-related incidents are among the thirteen Conditions of Concern used by the military to deny personnel a security clearance. More than likely this was not an issue in Milley’s case since he has no DUI on his record.
The Star attempted to get information from the public affairs office for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but they declined to comment.
Of course a nearly 40-year-old DUI charge with no conviction is the least of the problems with General Mark Milley. Especially considering the recent discover that just months ago, before Donald Trump left office, Milley was in direct contact with Chinese military officials conspiring to inform them if the President planned to launch a military strike on China.
What’s more, Milley instructed senior officers to obey his orders, not the orders given by the Commander-in-Chief.
For heaven’s sake, even that ridiculous Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, darling of the Impeachment, called out General Milley for usurping civilian authority and breaking the Chain of Command.
In short, who cares about a 40-year-old DUI charge for which he wasn’t convicted when General Mark Milley committed treason — not forty years ago, but just last year.
