Defense Secretary Mark Esper is sending hundreds of active duty soldiers who had been on standby in the Washington, D.C., area back to their home base after reversing course on such a decision the day before.

Sec Esper is looking like an adult in the room.

He must have lined up his next job. Thank you Sec. Esper.

"Sec Esper is looking like an adult in the room."

Which obviously makes him a threat to Trump, always the perpetual and petulant child in the room.

Esper is a toady, but he probably doesn't want to be linked to a Trumpian, half-arsed (but I'm repeating myself) troops v. the people scenario. I'm sure Bunker Don is confused. After all, Putin and Xi must've told him he needed to make his bones if he was going to be a full-fledged member of Fight Club (Facist Branch).

Overdue order from another collaborator/enabler.

Dotard learned something, Esper is not sufficiently sycophantic, and so I expect his resignation/firing in the next couple of weeks. He will then be replaced by a Trumpier moron (Tom Cotton, Matt Gaetz?) who is willing to use the constitution as Combover Quisling's next diaper. Make no mistake, this was a dress rehearsal for November. There will be another. Dotard is testing his boundaries, finding out who is sufficiently loyal to risk prison time to carry out his illegal orders.

Trump? Agreed.

Bringing out the US military on US civilians? That's not just impeachable, that's lock him up and throw away the key type of stuff.
