Watchdog Group Demands Information into Pelosi’s Attempted Coup

Government watchdog Judicial Watch wants to know more about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s behavior and actions on January 8, 2021, when she called General Mark Milley in an attempt to take away then President Trump’s military authority. The group has issued a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Defense for details of the call.

The lawsuit demands “any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the telephone call between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and General Mark Milley on or about January 8, 2021,” and “any and all transcripts, recordings, and/or summaries of the call, as well as any other records produced in preparation for, during, and/or pursuant to the call.” Judicial Watch is also looking for “any and all additional records of communication between Gen. Milley and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi between November 1, 2020, and the present.”

At the time, the Wall Street Journal called the speaker’s behavior “A Coup of Pelosi’s Own.”

We scoured the U.S. Constitution Friday afternoon and it’s definitely not there: the provision allowing the Speaker of the House of Representatives to intervene in the military chain of command to protect the world from President Trump.
