Retired four-star military officers who lambasted President Trump could be recalled to active duty and prosecuted for violating the U.S. Code, military law experts told Just the News. “Retired officers can't make contemptuous remarks of the commander-in-chief,” said John Dowd, a former Marine Corps Judge Advocate and former Trump legal advisor. “They’re all subject to recall. They’re subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice until they die.” The pertinent law is Title 10 of the U.S. Code, Section 888, the experts said. “As part of the UCMJ, governing military law, you cannot use contemptuous words against certain officials, including the president,”

There is a solid reasoning on keeping current and retired military members apolitical. A retired officer still holds sway with current troops. You know the rules going in. There is no excuse.

Well, I guess if the USA is gonna turn into a third world country, we need some generals to get involved in the coup d'etat business. Gee, I remember reading Seven Days in May as a kid (and seeing the movie). I didn't realize 50 years later, I'd be living in the movie. John

This is really dangerous. If retired senior military officers can openly defy our Commander-in-Chief that could destroy our previously solid control of chain of command, and even encourage certain elelements to attempt a military coup. This needs to be nipped in the bud immediately. I fully support the court martial of these retired officers.

What ever would we do without "experts"... Does anybody think this is because Trump threatened the generals? Or that these 'experts' called a press conference to declare, out of the blue, that Trump could do that? Sheesh. They were ASKED by this shitstirring blog, and their answer was given without the question to make it more controversial. That is the pattern of the 'gotcha' media these days. F 'em.

I'm operating from memory plus anecdotal evidence here, both dangerous, of course, but... Ulysses S. Grant, in his post presidency years, was dying of cancer, and out of money. He published his memoirs, but still needed money - ran for the presidency again, which would have been a third term. And out of kindness, Congress and President Hayes placed Grant back on active duty, justifying it by keeping all generals on active duty until death. Am I correct, or is my imagination over-active today?

I am sick and tired of the left getting away without being prosecuted for prosecutable offenses. Let's see. If you ran for president you are immune for life, if you're a General, you lie, cheat, and violate the law with impunity, without anyone lifting a finger against them. It's time to do what we say, that nobody, that is NOBODY is above the law.

What those retired Generals did certainly justifies an official UCMJ inquiry that will last past the November election. Then it will depend on who wins the election. If the Democrats win the Generals will be given a pass, but if the Republicans win who knows, as the Republicans are pretty wimpy.

As I've been saying. Case in point was G.W. Bush calling out of retirement Gen. Peter Schoomaker to be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Most also don't know that Gen. Douglas MacArthur was called out of retirement to become a 5-star General in WWII then once again to win the Korean War.

This is a little lengthy of a discussion, but it touches upon something very relevant to this election cycle. Author Diana West discusses a network and pattern of ideology within the modern pentagon leadership, and how a worldview is threatened by President Trump.(Snip) The conversation necessarily gets in the weeds and is filled with unique insight into a very complex alignment. However, in the big picture it’s not difficult to figure out why the Pentagon would be opposed to Trump. (Snip) President Trump’s preferred use of economic warfare makes the Pentagon’s role diminished. Instead of punching North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, President Trump hits the checkbook of Chinese Chairman Xi Jinping.

John Bolton, Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, wanted to write a book. He knew that the White House would do everything it could to stop him. He hired a flashy white-shoe law firm to handle the prepublication review process required by the nondisclosure agreement he signed when he got his security clearance.(Snip) Then his lawyer, Chuck Cooper, wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed this week intended to put public pressure on the White House. In it, Cooper volunteered that Bolton had violated both his NDA and perhaps a few criminal laws, including the Espionage Act. Now, even if Bolton’s book is never released, he is facing stiff penalties.

Senate Democrats are warning former Vice President Joe Biden against releasing a list of potential Supreme Court picks. Then-candidate Trump, in 2016, released a list of names he said he would pick from to fill a Supreme Court vacancy, and Biden is facing calls from activists on both the right and left to do the same. But several Democratic senators are warning Biden, who previously chaired the Judiciary Committee, against doing so. Sen. Dick Durbin (Ill.), the No. 2 Senate Democrat and a member of the panel, told The Hill that Biden should not emulate Trump, who broke political norms with his list.
