James N. Miller quits Defense Science Board, citing Defense Secretary Mark Esper's "blatant violations" of oath to "support and defend the Constitution"

The Washington Post reports that "James N. Miller, undersecretary of defense for policy from 2012 to 2014, provided The Washington Post with a copy of his resignation letter, which he submitted to Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper on Tuesday evening."

Law-abiding protesters just outside the White House were dispersed using tear gas and rubber bullets — not for the sake of safety, but to clear a path for a presidential photo op.

Instead, you visibly supported it.
