The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley was asked if he would be following Donald Trump’s orders if they were illegal.

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) asked Milley, “Do you intend to obey illegal orders from the president?”

On Monday, Gallego post a picture of the response he received.

“My bottom line response to the question in your June 1, 2020 letter is ‘absolutely not.’ I testified at my Senate confirmation hearing that any soldier, sailor, airman or marine, regardless of rank, including myself, will not obey an illegal order,” the letter read. “I have personally abided by this standard since my commissioning 40 years ago — and I will not change now.”
