If only there was such a forceful response to Senator Gillibrand (and other senators) on sexual assault and the Military Justice "Improvement" Act, along the lines of"
"I have zero tolerance for false allegations of sexual assault. False accusations undermine good order and discipline. I want to learn more about false accusations and how to address concerns that servicemembers are wrongly convicted of sexual assault offenses. I am concerned about racial disparities in the prosecution of sexual assault offenses. I completely support the Constitution that there is a presumption of innocence. The idea that complainants should be presumed to be telling the truth is contrary to the Constitutional presumption of innocence. We need to return to the time that investigations into allegations of sexual misconduct are thoroughly investigated, and that evidence showing lack of guilt is accepted, instead of ignored, during the investigation. I support a military justice system that requires a unanimous verdict for guilt for all offenses, not just death-penalty cases."

That was a great statement. He didn’t endorse anything other than an open mind and openness to figuring out the causes of the extremist behavior in our country.
Perhaps General Miley is trying to 'understand' how a panel ended up with all white members in Bess.
Does this mean he will get a pardon, a new trial, a dismissal perhaps.
It's all talking a good game until you can apply it to individual.
