President Joe Biden is standing next to General Mark Milly, a senior US military officer. Earlier, it was reported that he secretly called a Chinese general during the administration of former President Donald Trump and promised to provide intelligence to communist countries.
Several reports from anonymous sources stated that Milli had called General Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army in 2020 and January, respectively, to assure him that the United States would not attack the Chinese Communist Party. If they were to attack, he would remind his counterparts. .
Republicans described Millai’s actions as treason, if they did happen, but White House Press Secretary Jane Pasaki told reporters that even if the call did happen, the president would support Millai.
“The president believes he is patriotic, his loyalty to our Constitution is unquestionable, and he has full confidence in him,” Psaki said in a briefing in Washington.
Psaki claimed that the alleged time of the call was important, accused Trump of “inciting a rebellion,” referring to January 6, and after the incident “expressed widespread concern for many members of his national security team”. The U.S. Capitol violated regulations.
She also said: “Every chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has an obligation to abide by the constitutional order and prevent illegal military operations.”
The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCOS) chaired by Millais stated in a statement that Millais regularly meets with colleagues around the world, including those in China and Russia.
“His calls with China and other countries in October and January were in line with these duties and responsibilities to convey assurances to maintain strategic stability. A spokesperson for the organization said that all calls the chairman gave to his colleagues, including those The reported calls are all staffed and coordinated and communicated with the Ministry of National Defense and inter-agency.
The spokesperson added: “General Millais continues to act and provide advice within his powers in accordance with the legal tradition of civilian control of the military and his oath to the Constitution.”
The top Republicans asserted that Milly’s actions constituted treason, meaning that he should be expelled and may face charges.
Trump said on the phone: “If it is really true, it is unbelievable that he will call China and do these things, and is willing to notify them before the attack or before the attack, that is treason. “The news is the biggest.
The former president said in a written statement that the report was inaccurate and he never thought of attacking China.
Senator Marco Rubio (Florida Republican) of Fox News stated that if Milly called, he “basically ignored the Constitution and decided to call potential opponents and enemies in the United States and collude with them, telling them’if I When ordered to do something, I will tell you first.'”
“I don’t care what you think of President Trump. The JCOS chairman is committed to subverting the military command system and colluding with China. This is exactly what we do not accept our military leader. If it is true, he should be tried by a military court,” Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) added in a statement.
Sens. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) and Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) and Representatives Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), Jody Hice (R-Ga.) and Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.) if the allegations are true , Other Republicans called on Milly to resign or be fired. Milley will testify to Congress later this month.
“It’s very simple: if Milli’s alleged treason is true, he must resign or be fired immediately,” Reschenthaler wrote on Twitter.
