Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., Told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday that Congress will “ensure” that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley responds to the report that he made two phone calls to Chinese officials in fear. that Trump would order an attack on the country.
MILEY SECRETLY CALLED CHINESE OFFICIALS BY LEAK TRUMP ‘WOULD ATTACK’ IN LAST DAYS, BOOK CLAIM
TOM COTTON: This book raises some serious concerns and I would say some of the allegations strike me as a little out of the ordinary. But General Milley and [Defense] Secretary [Lloyd] Austin will be testifying before Congress in a few days and we will address those concerns. We don’t want to jump to any hasty conclusions just yet, but we will certainly take a look at them and see exactly what happened.
… The idea that an American military general is going to warn an adversary that an attack is imminent, as you say, when Donald Trump never even thought of a military attack on China? The whole is quite far-fetched.
I will say this though, this book also reports what has been widely reported, what we have heard in Congress over the past few days in the testimony of intelligence officers and senior military officers, which Joe Biden did not given the military advice he received earlier this year about what would happen if he went ahead with his catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan.
