U.S. MILITARY DUMPS TRUMP, SAYS JANUARY 6 ATTACK WAS AGAINST THE LAW
The entire US armed services have condemned the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 was not only sedition but also an assault on the Constitution and the rule of law, in a veiled criticism of US President Donald Trump’s egging the rioters, Sarah K. Burris reported for Raw Story.
MSNBC show hostess Rachel Maddow got hold of the one-page letter signed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff that officially described the attack as “sedition.”
"The violent riot in Washington, D.C. on January 6 ... we witnessed actions inside the Capitol building that were inconsistent with the rule of law. The rights of freedom of speech and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition and insurrection," the letter stressed.
The letter also said that they consider the election to be over and believe President-elect Joe Biden will become the commander-in-chief on January 20, 2021.
"The US military will obey lawful orders from civilian leadership ... and remain fully committed to protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic," the letter said.
"We support and defend the Constitution. Any act to disrupt the Constitutional process is not only against our traditions and values and oath; it is against the law."
Signers of the letter include: U.S. Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, Chairman of the Joint Cheifs of Staff, U.S. Air Force Gen. John E. Hyten, U.S. Army Gen. James C. McConville, U.S. Marine Corps Gen. David H. Berger, U.S. Navy Admiral Michael M. Gilday, U.S. Air Force Gen. Charles Q. Brown, Jr., U.S. Space Force Gen. John W. Raymond, and U.S. Army Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson.
