President Joe Biden says he has “great confidence” in Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley — the same top-ranking military official who reportedly made two secret phone calls to his Chinese counterpart during the Trump presidency.
Milley is under fire for comments he allegedly made in an anti-Trump book. He allegedly told the Chinese military that he would tip them off if the United States was about to launch a strike against them. Milley’s actions, according to the book’s authors, underscore his belief that President Trump was a “threat” to the United States.
The general reportedly told China’s top military official, “ ..(Y)ou and I have known each other for five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”
There are growing calls for Milley to resign, with some asserting the Joint Chiefs chair is guilty of a dereliction of duty, even treason. For Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, who led the Pentagon from the period after the 2020 election through Inauguration Day, told Fox News that Biden’s top military chieftain’s alleged conduct was a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination.”
Tucker Carlson says “Deep State” is not an adequate expression to describe what sounds like crimes committed against the United States by the nation’s leading general.
