According to Judicial Watch, the communications between then-CIA Director Gina Haspel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley in 2020-21, which reportedly involved the targeting of President Donald Trump. Haspel reportedly went on record saying “we are on the way to a right-wing coup” under Trump’s leadership.

Previously, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request to obtain communication records between CIA Director Gina Haspel and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley.

The watchdog group is now suing the CIA for completely ignoring Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.

Excerpt from SharylAttkisson report:

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on December 31, 2021, after the CIA failed to respond to a September 15, 2021, Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for: 

  1. All records of communication between CIA Director Gina Haspel and Gen. Mark Milley between November 1, 2020, and January 20, 2021.
  1. All records regarding all meetings between CIA Director Haspel and Gen. Milley between November 1, 2020, and January 20, 2021. This includes all summaries, notes, and transcripts, as well as all records created in preparation for, during, or pursuant to any such meeting.

Milley and Haspel reportedly had at least one conversation in which President Trump was attacked as being part of a “coup.” “It ought to be disturbing to all Americans that the head of the CIA and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs were reportedly conspiring against the President of the United States,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Our new lawsuit will hopefully ferret out the truth about any plots to undermine President Trump by the military and CIA.” 

CNS News has more of the details:

As reported in Newsweek, in the days after the 2020 presidential election, Haspel apparently told Milley, “We are on the way to a right-wing coup.”

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement said, “It ought to be disturbing to all Americans that the head of the CIA and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs were reportedly conspiring against the President of the United States.”

“Our new lawsuit will hopefully ferret out the truth about any plots to undermine President Trump by the military and CIA,” added Fitton.

As a result, Judicial Watch has sued.
