Liberal Journos Who Broke Story on Milley's Call with China Do Damage Control, Say He Did Not Commit Treason

Posted: Sep 20, 2021 7:00 PM

The reporters who revealed last week that Gen. Mark Milley engaged in secret calls with his Chinese counterpart attempted to do damage control, following criticisms of the call, by saying Monday that they do not believe the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff committed treason.

Bob Woodward and Robert Costa of The Washington Post released an excerpt of their forthcoming book, "Peril," that claims Milley spoke with People’s Liberation Army General Li Zuocheng on October 30, 2020, and again January 8, 2021. Milley allegedly ensured Li that the U.S. would not attack China and even went as far as to say that he would warn the communist country if then-President Donald Trump was planning to strike during the last months of his presidency.

"We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you," Milley said during one of the calls. "General 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. It’s not going to be a surprise."

And while Republicans called Milley's actions treasonous and demanded he resign, both Woodward and Costa, during an appearance on "Good Morning America," attempted to downplay the calls with China by saying that they did not believe the chairman was acting in "isolation."

When asked if Milley's calls could be considered as acts of treason, Woodward said, "No, not at all."

"He was not going rogue," Costa added. "This is not someone working in isolation."
