    Default Marco Rubio, Alexander Vindman Call on Gen. Milley to Resign Over Alleged China Calls

    Marco Rubio, Alexander Vindman Call on Gen. Milley to Resign Over Alleged China Calls
    By Aila Slisco On 9/14/21 at 8:12 PM EDT




    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman have called on Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley to lose his job over alleged secret calls to China amid concerns about former President Donald Trump.

    Peril, an upcoming book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, alleges that Milley made two calls to his Chinese counterpart Gen. Li Zuocheng—one days before the 2020 election and the other days after the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol—over fears that Trump's actions could start a war, according to The Washington Post.

    Rubio sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Tuesday demanding that he fire Milley "immediately" for working to "actively undermine" Trump.

    "[Milley] worked to actively undermine the sitting Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and contemplated a treasonous leak of classified information to the Chinese Communist Party in advance of a potential armed conflict with the People's Republic of China (PRC)," wrote Rubio. "These actions by General Milley demonstrate a clear lack of sound judgement, and I urge you to dismiss him immediately."

    "General Milley has attempted to rationalize his reckless behavior by arguing that what he perceived as the military's judgement was more stable than its civilian commander," he continued. "You must immediately dismiss General Milley. America's national security and ability to lead in the world are at stake."

    Vindman, a key witness in Trump's first impeachment who the former president later called "very insubordinate," said in a tweet that Milley should resign if the alleged phone calls took place. Vindman argued that the alleged phone calls "set an extremely dangerous precedent" that "you can't simply walk away from."

    "If this is true GEN Milley must resign," tweeted Vindman. "He usurped civilian authority, broke Chain of Command, and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military."

    Yep. He must be arrested, dismissed, and brought up on charges of treason. No doubt about it. The story is heating up now and will not just go away.

    Why does he need to rehabilitate his own image? Vindman seems to be consistent in his opinions. That isn’t a characteristic of a weasel. I understand you must be still angry over his telling the truth.

    Earl, given the fact about Trump's mental instability, there was good reason for concern.

    This is like what happened before Nixon resigned. Leaders reassured nations that the USA was stable even though Nixon wasn’t. It is not treasonous.

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that the POTUS was responsible for foreign affairs ... but then maybe it was just a faded copy of the Constitution

    If this is so, with Biden at the helm, "leaders" must be phoning other nations hourly....The United States has never been more unstable than it is now....

    Surely, you jest, Trumper.

    Biden is so senile that his own staff has to pull the cord and censor him.

    The president, the leader of the free world, is now being censored.

    Who is now responsible for foreign affairs?

    Gen. Milley? Where in the Constitution does it say that a general is responsible for foreign affairs?
