Report: General Milley Secretly Called China To Tell Them Trump Wasn’t Planning To Attack

Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley reportedly grew so concerned about President Donald Trump’s mental state that he secretly called China to tell them that the United States wasn’t about to start a war with them.

The shocking revelations are courtesy of a new book titled, Peril, by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa, which recounts the waning days of the Trump administration.

According to the writers, a phone call took place just days before the 2020 presidential election in which Milley assured General Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army of China that the United States would not strike.

The call was prompted by alleged concerns China had regarding potential military action by the United States.

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

That the nation’s top military officer went over the head of the civilian Commander-in-Chief – especially not knowing if Trump were to be Commander-in-Chief for another four years following the election at that point – would lead some to conclude Milley’s actions are tantamount to treason.

General Mark Milley Intervenes To ‘Stop Trump From Launching Nuclear Weapons’

Excerpts from the new book show that General Mark Milley took similar action after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, something CNN reports left the top military officer “deeply shaken.”

“In response, Milley took extraordinary action, and called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office on January 8 to review the process for military action, including launching nuclear weapons,” they write.

To be clear, there is no indication from any sources that Trump had any notion at all about starting a war – especially not against nuclear-armed China, and especially not with nuclear weapons.

Milley, whose concern about so-called “white rage” has prompted ridicule from conservative circles for being ‘woke,’ instructed officers “not to take orders from anyone unless he was involved.”

“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” he is quoted as having said.

At the end of the meeting, he made the officers “verbally confirm they understood.”

Pelosi’s Bidding?

Recall that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted shortly after the Capitol riot that she had spoken to the General about a means of preventing Trump from accessing the nuclear codes.

Pelosi said she spoke with Milley about “available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.”

Could they have spoken about this as early as the call to Zuocheng?

Government watchdog group Judicial Watch announced in March that they launched a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in an effort to access records concerning the call after January 6 as well as any possible communication records between Pelosi and Milley from just before the election.

Another book that covers the same time period, I Alone Can Fix It, makes eyebrow-raising claims about comments Milley made about Trump in the aftermath of the election.

“This guy’s crazy,” Pelosi reportedly told Milley. “He’s dangerous. He’s a maniac.”

Milley replied, “Ma’am, I guarantee you that we have checks and balances in the system.”

Milley, the book also claims, had compared Trump’s complaints of election fraud and the protests that resulted from those objections to the rise of Adolf Hitler.

“This is a Reichstag moment,” Milley allegedly told aides. “The gospel of the Führer.”

The question that arises is – if President Trump had lost control of his mental abilities – why didn’t Milley resign?

CNN wrote in 2018 that any military commanders who felt they had been given an illegal order by their Commander-in-Chief typically resign as a means to prevent the order from going through.

General John Hyten, a top US nuclear commander, had said at the time “that the US military always has the obligation to follow only legal orders, including those entailing the launch of nuclear weapons.”

“There is a widely held belief among military commanders that they must resign if they are unable to carry out an order that does not rise to that standard,” the report reads.

Instead, Milley did what he did.

Milley’s actions are incredibly serious and calls for his resignation – at the very least – must begin posthaste.

Think for a second. Milley’s actions could have very easily prompted China, perhaps now fearful that the America’s top military officer ‘doth protest too much’ that there wasn’t an attack coming from the United States (after all, there was no indication there was to begin with,) to launch their own military action first.

He could have started an actual war.

Not just any war. A was between nuclear powers.

The allegations in the book at this point are simply allegations. But Congress has no choice but to investigate General Mark Milley for his borderline treasonous actions against President Trump and the American people.

Treason: 18 US Code Ch 115; UCMJ Articles 88, 92, and 134. General Milley is guilty of undermining the POTUS, attempting to lead a military coup against a sitting POTUS, aiding and abetting a foreign country by warning them, dereliction of duty by discussing with the opposing political party and discussing removing the POTUS. Throw all of that in with the Afghanistan debacle and heads need to roll, including the service chiefs that did not question Milley when he was subverting the POTUS. Court martials are in order.

If this was an ordinary soldier he would have been he would have been dishonorably discharge with loss of all benefits and pay. Why hasn’t Milley? He an untouchable Obammite or something?
