Twitter Cries 'Treason' After Milley Said to Have Conspired With China Against Trump

While the authors of the new book Peril may have believed that some of their purported bombshells would paint former President Donald Trump in a poor light, they perhaps neglected to view the forest for the trees.

In the tawdry tome, authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costas have suggested that General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, usurped the authority of the Commander in Chief during Trump’s final days in office by demanding that key Pentagon officials ignore any nuclear orders by the President unless Milley himself was involved.

Then, even more worrisome is the claim that Milley also went behind the President’s back to promise China that he would preemptively warn them if Trump were to make any military move against them.

In the book, authored by Washington 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.”

And that’s not all…

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.”
