Milley "Had a Pattern of Behavior" of Exceeding His Authority and Undermining Trump

It does answer the question. Were you in the military?
Most of my family was and I grew up as an Air Force brat. I understand chain of command well enough to know that not all duties one carries out must be announced up the chain. Not all orders given are referred upwards for approval. Once you reach certain levels in the chain, you are expected to perform the duties within your purview without running your decisions 'up the chain'.
That's why your answer is not satisfactory.

Correct. Were you ever in the military?

You ought to know Milley overstepped his authority. Had he done that Biden, he'd be out of a job and perhaps be facing a court martial.

That's why I asked the question the way I did. "Was it required, legally, that the White House be informed of this call?"
If yes, then he overstepped his authority. If no, he did not.
Can you honestly say you know, for a fact, that he was required to inform the White of the call and its contents.

I thought the implication was clear that I was not. Did this make my analysis of the chain of command incorrect? You seem to have agreed to it.
