Milley told Chinese officials he would warn of an attack in advance, according to the book

During the final months of former President Donald Trump's term, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley made two phone calls to Chinese officials in fear that Trump would create n Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa, it is alleged that Milley made two secret phone calls, both to his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army. The book alleges that the phone calls took place prior to the 2020 presidential election on Oct. 30, 2020, and two days after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, on Jan. 8, 2021.

According to the book, Milley contacted Zuocheng after he had reviewed intelligence that suggested Chinese officials believed the United States was planning an attack on China amid military exercises in the South China Sea.

"General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be OK," Milley told him during the first call, the book said. "We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you."

The book, excerpted in the Washington Post, also stated that Milley told Zuocheng that he would warn him in advance should America decide to "attack."

"Gen. Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we're going to attack, I'm going to call you ahead of time," Milley added, as reported by the book, "Peril," which is set to be released next week. "It's not going to be a surprise."

The authors of the book also claim Milley contacted Zuocheng a second time to reassure him that the U.S. would not make any type of advances or attack China in any form, as

Remember, the FBI said Trump did not incite the riot.

Milley is playing by Alinsky rules. No way PDJT was “unstable.” It was all a hyp to get everyone to believe that Trump was unsuited to be president. A false narrative.

Milley should be court marshalled if he indeed di do this. But what the heck, He is an American marxist running dog for Obama , Biden and the left.He dishonored himself and his troops by what happened in Afghanistan. He needs to go.But he is too useful to the left’s destruction of Americqa.

Read between the lines here folks. This is actual confirmation that COVID-19 was a Chinese Bioweapon and it was intentionally released.

Why else would the Chinese be worried about a nuclear attack?

Milley is disillusion.

First of all the president cannot single-handedly activate the nuclear bomb/rocket. Other sign-offs are involved.

Secondly, Milley is not in the military command structure and is unable, by law, to order the military to do anything. He is the chief military advisor to the president.

If Milley did what is claimed in the book then, I believe he is candidate for a treason trial.

General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be OK,” Milley told him during the first call, the book said. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.”

This statement contradicts Miley’s assertion that Trump was going to use unconstitutional methods to remain President.

The Jan. 6th narrative is falling apart and all the “DC horses and girly men” can’t put it together again.

Dear Mr. President:

I write with grave concern regarding recent reporting that General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, worked to actively undermine the sitting Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and contemplated a treasonous leak of classified information to the Chinese Communist Party in advance of a potential armed conflict with the People’s Republic of China (PRC). These actions by General Milley demonstrate a clear lack of sound judgement, and I urge you to dismiss him immediately.

It has been reported that General Milley spoke with his counterpart in the People’s Liberation Army after learning the PRC was worried about escalating tensions as a result of military exercises conducted in the South China Sea. Reportedly, General Milley told his counterpart: “[y]ou and I have known each other for now 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.” I do not need to tell of you the dangers posed by senior military officers leaking classified information on U.S. military operations, but I will underscore that such subversion undermines the President’s ability to negotiate and leverage one of this nation’s instruments of national power in his interactions with foreign nations.

Even more egregiously, reports indicate that General Milley interfered with the procedures by which the civilian commander-in-chief can order a nuclear strike. He purportedly instructed officials not to take orders without his involvement and forced them to take an oath to that effect. A senior military officer interfering with that civilian-controlled process is simply unacceptable at best, and at worst, would cause ambiguity which could lead to war.

General Milley has attempted to rationalize his reckless behavior by arguing that what he perceived as the military’s judgement was more stable than its civilian commander. It is a dangerous precedent that could be asserted at any point in the future by General Milley or others. It threatens to tear apart our nation’s longstanding principle of civilian control of the military.

You must immediately dismiss General Milley. America’s national security and ability to lead in the world are at stake.

Milly, the man who couldn’t see the Taliban over running a country, yet he saw Trump getting ready to blow up the world.

I guess Milly and Biden both get paychecks from China.
