Gen. Milley Defends Calls to China Saying They Were Within Scope of Job
On Friday, General Mark Milley defended the calls he made to China during the final months of Trump's presidency saying they were "perfectly within the duties and responsibilities" of his job.
Milley has been at the center of a controversy since reports came out showing he made two calls to General Li Zuocheng of the Chinese Army to assure him that the United States was not planning to go to war with China.
General Milley has since said that such calls are “routine” and necessary "to ensure strategic stability" in the region.
Milley will testify before Congress later this month to discuss the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and says he will go into any level of detail Congress wants to about the calls, at that point.
