Gen. Milley Becomes Bank Adviser, Joins Clinton's Speaking Agency

Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley is poised to embark on lucrative endeavors following his departure from the military amid criticisms of politicization and alleged overreach during his tenure.

A recent report by the Intercept unveils Milley's post-retirement ventures, including senior advisory roles at JPMorgan Chase bank, appointments to the faculties of Princeton and Georgetown universities, and lucrative engagements on the paid speaking circuit.

Transitioning from a military salary of $204,000 annually, Milley is anticipated to command compensation reaching into the millions, as detailed in the Intercept's investigation by Ken Klippenstein.

Milley has aligned himself with the prestigious Harry Walker Agency, a speakers' bureau renowned for representing high-profile figures like Hillary Clinton.

Milley has wasted no time in leveraging his new platform, delivering paid speeches through the Harry Walker Agency. Notable engagements include a Q&A session for 160 CEOs convened by Moelis & Company, where attendees lauded his insights on world affairs.

He also addressed the 2024 Presidents and Chancellors Summit of the American Council on Education, sponsored by global consulting firm Deloitte.

The Summit, exclusive to top academic leaders, featured Milley discussing themes of democracy, higher education, and moral leadership amidst crises.

Jonathan Riskand, of the American Council on Education, clarified that the event was restricted to presidents and chancellors, with no transcript provided.

Milley's trajectory mirrors that of Clinton, who garnered significant speaking fees post-government service. Clinton's speaking engagements typically earned her around $200,000 each, with substantial earnings accrued from engagements such as those with Goldman Sachs.

Alongside her husband, former President Bill Clinton, the couple reportedly amassed $153 million in speaking fees since departing the White House.

Milley drew anger for statements made during congressional hearings, including his endorsement of West Point cadets learning about critical race theory and remarks regarding "white rage." Despite controversies and criticisms, Milley's post-retirement trajectory underscores the intersection of politics, military leadership, and lucrative opportunities in the private sector.
