 Trump-Milley feud played key role in classified documents case
by Brad Dress - 06/13/23 6:00 AM ET

The feud between former President Trump and the nation’s highest-ranking military officer, Gen. Mark Milley, played a key role in the historic indictment handed down last week over Trump’s alleged criminal mishandling of classified documents.

Key audio in the case captured Trump trying to prove his side of the story after a New Yorker article detailed Milley’s attempts to prevent the president from attacking Iran during his final days in the White House.

Trump claimed he had a document about a “plan of attack” on Iran that showed it was Milley’s idea, and he admitted he knew the document was secret and not declassified by him, contradicting some of his claims in the case. It’s unclear whether the document in question exists.

The episode highlights a tumultuous relationship that began when the former president tapped Milley as the Joint Chiefs chairman in late 2018.

So, in other words, Trump allowed himself to get played into making an egregious statement, all to salve his delicate little ego.
