The president must deliver the power of attorney to Joe biden on January 20, but the tension – amid Trump’s refusal to acknowledge his defeat and recent violence by his supporters in Congress – became more than clear with the conversation between Pelosi and the military leader.
Milley’s spokesman, Colonel Dave Butler, confirmed to AFP Pelosi’s call to his boss but did not give details about what was discussed between them. He simply said that Milley had “answered your questions about the nuclear chain of command.”
“The situation with this unbalanced president couldn’t be more dangerous“he continued, promising that the Congress will take “action” if Trump “does not leave office imminently and voluntarily” or if Vice President Mike Pence does not initiate the process that allows the cabinet to remove the president.

McCarthy, one of Trump’s most powerful lawmakers loyalists, said instead in a statement that he contacted President-elect Biden on Friday to “talk to him about how we should work together to calm things down and unite the country to solve America’s challenges“.
