Americans have been left shocked and, frankly, deeply rattled over a disturbing revelation contained in an explosive new-tell hitting the shelves this week, confirming the inappropriate role now-former First Lady Melania Trump played in the White House Situation Room, where she allegedly erroneously advised her husband during the infamous October 2019 raid to kill ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — even playing a very large role in Donald’s notorious stories about hero military dog, Conan.
The unsettling revelation hails from former Defense Secretary Christopher Miller’s bombshell new memoir, Soldier Secretary: Warnings from the Battlefield & the Pentagon about America’s Most Dangerous Enemies. During Miller’s time on the National Security Council during the Trump Administration, Al Baghdadi was considered the world’s most wanted terrorist. Miller served as Trump’s senior adviser for counterterrorism before going on to serve as head of the Pentagon in the now-former president’s Cabinet.
In his explosive tell-all, Miller describes being in the Situation Room during the historic raid and goes on to write about the rattling shock experienced among military officials in the room upon witnessing then-First Lady Melania Trump joining officials to bear witness to the top-secret operation playing out in real-time.
“Secretary of Defense Mark Esper quickly gave up his seat and she sat down next to the President, who introduced her to us as if we didn’t know who she was. Her presence was unexpected, to say the least,” Miller writes. “I wondered how it would play in the press if word got out that the First Lady had popped in to watch a major military operation,” the former NatSec official goes on to reveal, before adding, “Not my problem, I figured. And after all, it was her house.”

Miller’s bombshell tell-all is the first time that Melania Trump’s alleged presence in the White House Situation Room, during the infamous, top-secret military operation, has been reported on.
The former Trump Era official writes that Donald personally instructed then-Deputy Director for Special Operations on the Joint Staff Brig. Gen. Marcus Evans to bring his wife “up to speed” on the situation. Following a quick briefing, Evans told the group of officials, and Melania, that the “US assault force had unleashed their combat dog” into the building where al-Baghdadi was, with “our commandos close behind.”
Miller writes of the moment when Abu Bakr came to realize that he was cornered by US forces, and proceeded to detonate the suicide vest he was wearing, killing himself, two of his children, and two of his wives.
The former Secretary of Defense goes on to recall Trump questioning what would happen with their bodies, following the operation, asking, “Don’t you think ISIS will parade their bodies around and make it look like they were innocent?”
According to Miller, the then-Commander in Chief began to question how to best go about addressing the American people regarding the operation, prompting his wife to chime in with her own suggestions. Miller quotes Melania telling her husband, “You should talk about the dog.” Miller writes that Melania “took over” the conversation at that point, noting that “everyone loves dogs.”
Conan, a Belgian Malinois, was said to have played a pivotal role in the high-stakes military operation, aiding US military special forces in tracking al-Baghdadi through a tunnel during the Syria raid. Conan was injured during the operation, but made a speedy recovery and was met with praise and accolades in the States.
Trump very clearly took his wife’s advice on the matter of Conan, referring to the military dog as “Our ‘K-9,’ as they call it,” adding, “I call it a dog. A beautiful dog — a talented dog — was injured and brought back.” The now scandal-ridden former president would go on to hold an award ceremony in Conan’s honor in the White House Rose Garden, where Trump presented the pooch with an award and plaque for his monumental service to this nation.
“Conan did a fantastic job and we’re very honored to have Conan here and to have given Conan a certificate and an award,” Trump declared during the White House ceremony.
Radar Online reports that Miller’s explosive tell-all is set to release tomorrow, February 7th.
