Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Insists There Is No Role for Military in Election Disputes
Oct. 12,, 2020 (EIRNS)—Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley made clear during an interview with NPR, first posted last night, that the U.S. military will have no role in resolving any disputes that might arise out of the Nov. 3 election. “If there’s a disputed election, that’ll be handled by Congress and the courts,” he said.
“And I’m quite confident that that will be the case this time around, as it has been several times before. This isn’t the first time that someone has suggested that there might be a contested election. And if there is, it’ll be handled appropriately by the courts and by the U.S. Congress. There’s no role for the U.S. military in determining the outcome of a U.S. election. Zero. There is no role there.”
