According to a Republican running for Congress in the state of Nevada, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, should be hanged on live TV for all to see if the country is ever going to return to its “patriotic, liberty-loving roots,” according to Newsweek:
Republicans previously accused Milley—who serves as the chair of the Joints Chiefs of Staff—of treason after The Washington Post reported on a phone call he allegedly made to General Li Zuocheng of China in October 2020 and January 2021 to reassure Li that the United States would not attack China.
(Noah) Malgeri echoed those criticisms during a December 7 interview with the group Veterans in Politics, adding that he believes execution could be a potential punishment for Milley’s alleged crimes.
Malgeri insisted that there was no need to have any investigation of Milley:
“We don’t need a congressional commission to investigate the crimes of Mark Milley, all the evidence is out there. He’s an active duty soldier. Just convene a court-martial, and forget it.”
The Nevada Republican added that he thinks Milley’s execution should be televised on CNN:
“We need to get back to our patriotic, liberty-loving roots. What did they used to do to traitors if they were convicted by a court? They would execute them. That’s still the law in the United States of America. I think, you know, if he’s guilty of it by a court-martial, they should hang him on CNN. I mean, they’re not going to do it on CNN. But on C-SPAN or something.”
Using Malgeri’s flawed logic, others would also need to be charged with treason and dispensed for the world to see. Those would include former President Donald Trump and members of his administration who had backchannel communications with Russian nationals during the 2016 election.
If anyone needs to be arrested, it’s Noah Malgeri. He’s a disgrace to his state and the country.
