Gen. Mark Milley defended his calls in the final days of the Trump presidency to China Friday, saying they were “perfectly within the duties and responsibilities” of his job.
Milley told the Associated Press those calls were “routine” and done “to reassure both allies and adversaries in this case in order to ensure strategic stability.”
His brief comments come after a firestorm of controversy that Milley allegedly colluded with Nancy Pelosi and the Chinese to neutralize Trump, according to the explosive new book, “Peril,” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
Milley said he plans to discuss more when he testifies to Congress later in September.
“I think it’s best that I reserve my comments on the record until I do that in front of the lawmakers who have the lawful responsibility to oversee the U.S. military,” Milley said. “I’ll go into any level of detail Congress wants to go into in a couple of weeks.”
National radio host Todd Starnes said, if the allegations against Milley are true, “it would mark the third time that Deep State operatives and Democrats had tried to overthrow a duly elected president.”
