United States: Trump accused the general of treason. He was supposed to assure China that he would warn of the attack

United States: Trump accused the general of treason.  He was supposed to assure China that he would warn of the attack

“General Li, you and I have known each other for five years. If we were to attack, I would call. It wouldn’t be a surprise, Mielle had been told to General Zucheng from China.

In the book, Bob Woodward and Roberta Costa report that he called him twice, on October 30, 2020 and January 8, 2021, amid concerns about what President Trump might take before the election and at the end of his term. He expressed concern that China could start a war if it felt threatened by the “unexpected and decisive” US president and the precarious situation in the United States.

In addition, “Milly also summoned the senior officers of the Nuclear Weapons Release Procedures Division, saying that the President himself could issue the order—but more importantly, he, Millie, must also have been involved by them. Looking into everyone’s eyes, the general asked Officers admitting that they understood, the authors write, what they considered swearing,” the Washington Post wrote.

The former US president and his allies quickly criticized Milley. “If the story of General ‘Boob’ Mark Milley… is true, I assume he will be prosecuted for fraud,” Donald Trump wrote in a statement on Tuesday. “That means he was calling his Chinese counterpart behind the president’s back and telling China that he would warn them ‘about the attack’. You can’t do that,” he added.

Other conservative politicians and journalists express themselves in a similar way. If true, it is not an act of National Championship. Republican Senator Marco Rubio said this was an act of treason and a danger to our security and our constitutional order, and called on President Biden to remove the general.

“If this is confirmed, General Milley is a traitor to our country and should be prosecuted immediately for high treason,” Fox News columnist Sean Hannity stressed.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki stressed during a press conference that “the president has known the general for a long time (…) and has full confidence in his leadership, patriotism and devotion to our constitution,” she said. She also indicated that she would not comment on conversations in the book based on anonymous sources. The President himself also referred to the information. “I have great faith in General Milley,” Joe Biden said.

In turn, a spokesman for the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), Colonel Dave Butler, noted that the talks with Zuocheng were completely formally coordinated by government agencies. He stressed that Milley had tried to calm China “in order to maintain strategic stability.”

Milley is scheduled to appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee on September 28 to testify about the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan. It is possible that he will also have to refer to the aforementioned revelation, because the Republican representatives announce that they want to hear his version of the information revealed.
