Milley assured China in days leading up to 2020 election and after Jan. 6 that he would tip them off to any U.S. military action, according to book "Peril."
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley staged a coup against President Donald Trump in the days leading to the fraudulent 2020 election and in the days after January 6, according to a new book.
The book, called “Peril,” by journalist Bob Woodward and Washington Post reporter Robert Costa, claims Milley made two top-secret phone calls to Communist China assuring that he would tip them off in the event of an attack by the U.S.
From The Washington Post:
One call took place on Oct. 30, 2020, four days before the election that unseated President Trump, and the other on Jan. 8, 2021, two days after the Capitol siege carried out by his supporters in a quest to cancel the vote.
The first call was prompted by Milley’s review of intelligence suggesting the Chinese believed the United States was preparing to attack. That belief, the authors write, was based on tensions over military exercises in the South China Sea, and deepened by Trump’s belligerent rhetoric toward China.
“General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be okay,” Milley told him. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.”
