Pentagon Confirms Gen. Milley Colluded with Communist China
Statement verifies report that Milley spoke with China's military behind Trump's back
The Pentagon has released a statement seemingly confirming the explosive allegations that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley colluded with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) behind President Donald Trump's back.
A spokesman for the Department of Defense revealed that Milley spoke with China's top military officials in October and January and made "reassurances" to the CCP that he would undermine the U.S. president.
As Neon Nettle first reported, in the months surrounding the 2020 election, Gen. Milley allegedly warned China that Trump was "unstable" and took secret action to "secure" America's nuclear weapons as he coordinated with the Chinese and U.S. military officials against President Trump.
Among Milley's efforts as the top-ranking military officer, he secretly met with top military officials in the Pentagon two days after the Jan. 6 riot.
During the meeting, he told officials to keep him in the process for all military actions, including the use of nuclear weapons.
Milley made two phone calls, on October 30 and January 8, during which he reportedly assured China's Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army that he would warn him if Trump ordered a military strike against Communist China.
Axios reported that a spokesman for Milley addressed the report, saying Milley had indeed called his Chinese counterparts in October and January to convey “reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability.”

“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs regularly communicates with Chiefs of Defense across the world, including with China and Russia,” the spokesman said in a statement.
“These conversations remain vital to improving mutual understanding of U.S. national security interests, reducing tensions, providing clarity and avoiding unintended consequences or conflict.
“His calls with the Chinese and others in October and January were in keeping with these duties and responsibilities conveying reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability.
"All calls from the Chairman to his counterparts, including those reported, are staffed, coordinated and communicated with the Department of Defense and the interagency.”
Not directly addressed or denied in the statement, however, was the report that Milley had promised his Chinese counterpart — Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army — that he would warn him of any impending attack.
"If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time,” Milley reportedly said.
"It’s not going to be a surprise."
Should an attack have been planned and had Milley kept his word, such a move could be considered an act of treason.
The spokesman did address the claim that Milley had conspired to subvert Trump’s military authority.
According to the authors of “Peril,” Milley summoned a group of “senior officers to review the procedures for launching nuclear weapons, saying the president alone could give the order — but crucially, that he, Milley, also had to be involved.”
Milley also reportedly met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to discuss how best to restrain Trump’s powers during his last few weeks in office.
“Also in keeping with his responsibilities as senior military advisor to the President and Secretary of Defense, General Milley frequently conducts meetings with uniformed leaders across the Services to ensure all leaders are aware of current issues,” the statement read.
“The meeting regarding nuclear weapons protocols was to remind uniformed leaders in the Pentagon of the long-established and robust procedures in light of media reporting on the subject.
“General Milley continues to act and advise within his authority in the lawful tradition of civilian control of the military and his oath to the Constitution.”
Following the bombshell revelations, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky demanded an investigation into Milley’s actions, saying, “If it is true, he absolutely immediately needs to be removed.”
"He should be court-martialed if true," he added.
