Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) said outgoing Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Mark Milley should be executed for “treasonously working behind Trump’s back.”
Gosar made the comments in a newsletter to constituents on Sunday while falsely blaming Nancy Pelosi and Gen. Milley for delaying security reinforcement response to the Capitol on Jan. 6 as Trump supporters stormed the building.
“Of course, we now know that the deviant Milley was coordinating with Nancy Pelosi to hurt President Trump, and treasonously working behind Trump’s back,” Gosar wrote. “In a better society, quislings like the strange sodomy-promoting General Milley would be hung. He had one boss: President Trump, and instead he was secretly meeting with Pelosi and coordinating with her to hurt Trump.”
“How this traitor remains in office is a question we need answered,” Gosar added.
Gosar’s comment comes days after Trump said Milley should be put to death in a post on his Truth Social platform.
Milley is set to retire as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on October 1. He was appointed to that position by Trump in 2018.
