Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley confirmed that he made secret phone calls to the Communist Chinese assuring he’d first warn them of any military action against them, but claimed that was simply part of his “duties.“
Instead of denying that he made two secret phone calls outside the military chain of command to Chinese counterparts before and after the 2020 election claiming Trump may attack them, Milley said he was just doing his job.
“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs regularly communicates with Chiefs of Defense across the world, including with China and Russia,” Milley’s spokesman Colonel Dave Butler said in a statement Wednesday.
“His calls with the Chinese and others in October and January were in keeping with these duties and responsibilities conveying reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability.”
Joe Biden, the Pentagon, and several other Deep State minions also came to bat for the embattled general following the explosive reports made in journalist Bob Woodward’s book “Peril.”
The Pentagon defended Milley reportedly operating outside military chain of command when conducting a secret meeting on January 8 ordering DoD officials not to obey lawful commands from then-President Trump without his presence.
“I see nothing in what I’ve read that would cause any concern,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters Wednesday.

Joe Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki likewise said the Biden administration has “complete confidence” in Milley while also accusing former President Trump of “fomenting insurrection.”

Trump’s former National Security Adviser and Deep State minion John Bolton also defended Milley’s secret correspondence with Communist China.
“Mark Milley is a staunch supporter of the Constitution and the rule of law. His patriotism is unquestioned,” Bolton said in a statement, ignoring the lawmakers currently calling for Milley to be court-martialed and removed in light of these revelations.

Bolton then noted that many members of the National Security Council (NSC) were informed of Milley’s actions, as if that somehow makes Milley’s actions less egregious.
“I have no doubt General Milley consulted widely with his colleagues on the National Security Council and others during this period,” he added.
If these are the people praising Milley, you can be sure he acted against the interests of the American people and for the benefit of Communist China.
Former Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller refuted Milley’s claims and called his actions a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination.”
“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is the highest-ranking military officer whose sole role is providing military-specific advice to the president, and by law is prohibited from exercising executive authority to command forces,” Miller told Fox News.
“The chain of command runs from the President to the Secretary of Defense, not through the Chairman,” he added.
