The demented president Joe Biden is standing firm in defense of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley after disturbing reports emerged of his treasonous acts against Former President Donald Trump.
Milley went rogue, fomented a possible coup against then-President Trump out of concern of a possible attack against China during the end of his first term. Milley made two unauthorized back channel phone calls to his Chinese counterpart in the People’s Liberation Army. The American general guaranteed that if any attack were to occur under Trump’s orders, the Communist regime would have advanced warning.
“I have great confidence in General Milley,” Biden said after reports emerged.

White House mouthpiece Jen Psaki confirmed Biden’s confidence during her daily press briefing.

Psaki underscored the context of Milley’s alleged phone calls with Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, one before the 2020 presidential election and another after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Psaki also dismissed calls for Biden to fire Milley over the accusations. Critics have condemned Milley for treason-like behavior.

Minutes before Psaki walked into the briefing room, Joint Staff spokesman Col. Dave Butler released a statement saying Milley “regularly communicates with Chiefs of Defense across the world, including with China and Russia.”
“These conversations remain vital to improving mutual understanding of U.S. national security interests, reducing tensions, providing clarity and avoiding unintended consequences or conflict,” Butler wrote.
He added, “All calls from the Chairman to his counterparts, including those reported, are staffed, coordinated, and communicated with the Department of Defense and the interagency.”
Milley’s phone calls to Li were detailed in excerpts of Watergate journalist Bob Woodward and Washington Post reporter Robert Costa’s forthcoming book, Peril, in which they write about growing concerns regarding Trump’s “mental decline” after last year’s election.
Milley is scheduled to testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Sept. 28, along with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and U.S. Central Command chief Gen. Frank McKenzie.
