The book says that Milly made a call on October 30, 2020, four days before Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden in his re-election campaign. The other happened on January 8, 2021. Two days ago, hundreds of Trump supporters stormed into the U.S. Capitol and failed to prevent lawmakers from proving Biden’s election victory.
