The embattled General Milley made another stunning admission before a congressional hearing on Wednesday, essentially confessing that he would have told his Chinese counterpart of any impending US attack on Chinese forces ordered by President Trump.
As The New York Post reports:
“I said, hell, I’ll call you. But we’re not going to attack you,” Milley told the House Armed Services Committee about one of his conversations with Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army.
“As part of the conversation, I said, Gen. Li, there’s not going to be a war. There’s not going to be an attack between great powers, and if it was, the tensions would build up, there would be calls going back and forth from all kinds of senior officials,” the general said.
”I said, hell, I’ll call you. But we’re not going to attack you. Trust me, we’re not going to attack you. These are two great powers, and I am doing my best to transmit the president’s intent, President Trump’s intent to ensure the incident doesn’t escalate,” Milley continued.
Hartzler said Milley’s actions were grounds for his resignation.
