Thanks Mary Claire for this synopsis and links to this very real and scary story of Milley going behind the back of the Commander and Chief, with a nation like China.
“Calls to China were ‘perfectly’ within scope of job,” Milley told the AP, reported within the hour
Yet former Acting DEFSEC Chris Miller said in a statement to Fox News on Wednesday, September 15 that he “did not and would not ever authorize” Milley to conduct “secret” calls with his Chinese counterpart, calling these allegations “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination” and saying, if true, he should resign “immediately.”
Furthermore, former DNI John Ratcliffe told Sean Hannity on Wednesday, September 15 that if the content of the calls were true, it is the polar opposite of the US posture a week before election.
Former Secretary Mike Pompeo also made forceful comments and said we needed to “get clarity as soon as possible.”
