The following is a comprehensive compilation of Gen. Milley’s traitorous acts!
MODERN-DAY BENEDICT ARNOLD
Gen. Milley Worried Trump Would ‘Go Rogue,’ Warned China’s Top General In Secret ‘Back-Channel’ Phone Calls: Book
In their new book, “Peril,” journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa claim that Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was so concerned that then-President Donald Trump would “go rogue” and “spark a war with China” that he made a “pair of secret phone calls” to his counterpoint in China, per The Washington Post.
“Woodward and Costa write that after January 6, Milley‘felt no absolute certainty that the military could control or trust Trump and believed it was his job as the senior military officer to think the unthinkable and take any and all necessary precautions,’” according to a CNN writeup on the same report, that added that Milley thought Trump might “wag the dog” — provoke “a conflict domestically or abroad to distract from his crushing election loss.”
Milley was so fearful of Trump attacking China, the Post notes, that he appears to have undermined the Trump administration and communicated directly with Chinese officials.
“In a pair of secret phone calls, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, that the United States would not strike,” the pair of reporters noted. ‘One call took place on Oct. 30, 2020, four days before the election that unseated President Trump, and the other on Jan. 8, 2021, two days after the Capitol siege carried out by his supporters in a quest to cancel the vote.”
Shockingly, according to Woodward and Costa, it seems Milley communicated sensitive information to a Chinese general and even suggested that he would warn China ahead of time if he discovered that Trump planned to attack.
The conversation Gen. Milley and Speaker Pelosi had about Trump launching a nuclear strike: 'You know he's crazy' (Update)
Back on January 8, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she had spoken with Gen. Mark Milley about limiting President Trump’s ability to launch nuclear weapons. Here’s how NPR reported it at the time:
In a letter to her Democratic House colleagues on Friday, Pelosi said that she had spoken with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, about “available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.”…
Pelosi later told her caucus she had received assurances that there were safeguards in place, according to a source on the call. It is unclear what those safeguards might be.
Is Gen. Milley allowed to have high-level conversations like this without informing the president? I’m just recalling that the FBI went after Gen. Flynn for a phone call with the Russian ambassador. The claim was they Flynn may have violated the Logan Act by carrying out his own foreign policy. Granted the Logan Act has never really been enforced, but does that same scrutiny apply here?
Yes, Milley has to go
All of this, at least thus far, is based on a book written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, How much credibility you assign to their reporting is up to you. But at least for now, I believe we can take the allegation as factual for one reason. If any senior member of the military had such a scandalous accusation made against them – one that should immediately result in the termination of their military career and potentially some time behind bars – and it was false, they would have immediately denied it in the strongest possible terms and demanded that the claims be recanted. Milley hasn’t done that, so his silence is tantamount to a confession.
With that said, I will simply state that Mark Milley (who honestly doesn’t merit the dignity of being referred to as “General” at this point) needs to resign immediately and a full investigation needs to be launched. Despite his long and admirable service to the nation, this is simply a deal-breaker. I realize that nobody ever gets prosecuted under the Logan Act, but this is one case that simply screams for the attempt to be made. A court-martial would also not be out of the question. Here are a few of the key, updated details from Fox News.
I simply don’t understand how anyone else in uniform could serve alongside Milley at this point without either protest or resignation. They should be embarrassed to be seen in his company. But then, Milley himself should be embarrassed enough to do the right thing and take off that uniform and resign his commission. Will Joe Biden have the backbone to take action if Milley doesn’t do it on his own? Or will he be forgiven because his actions went against the Bad Orange Man, so that makes it all okay? This moment will turn out to be a test of Joe Biden’s character and fitness to lead our military. Let’s hope he doesn’t fail this one.
Apparently, tipping off the Chinese is completely normal:
Colonel Dave Butler, a spokesman to Milley, said in a statement to reporters the calls are part of his regular communications with defense chiefs worldwide, including China and Russia, and are crucial to reducing tensions between nations, as well as "avoiding unintended consequences or conflict."
"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," Butler said in a written statement. "All calls from the chairman to his counterparts, including those reported, are staffed, coordinated and communicated with the Department of Defense and the interagency."
Mr. Biden told reporters Wednesday afternoon he has "great confidence in General Milley."
And the Creepy Liar in Chief is all good with this. Release the transcripts of the call. Because cRATS are really into that kind of thing.
Remember when Obama kept our heads spinning? Clearly, this Obama retread has no qualms about leaving Americans and allies behind enemy lines, so tipping off the Chinese shouldn’t be a surprise. That said, I am just stunned. Stunned.
My jaw hit the floor, JG.
See Kurtis’ response!
I don't think the calls were ordinary---quite the opposite. Consider what the Secretary of Defense (at the time) has to say:
Thanks Kurtis! I agree!

Of course Liz is involved!
