Prominent Senators Call for Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley to ‘Be Removed Immediately’ and ‘Court Martialed’

Rand Paul, Republican Senator from Kentucky, has not only called for the removal of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army General Mark Milley, but also suggests he be court martialed. Mainstream media went wild after reports that the soon to be released book Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa claim Milley was afraid President Trump would “go rogue” so he took it upon himself to make secret calls to China.

Breitbart reports:

According to the upcoming book Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Milley worried then-President Trump would “go rogue” and orchestrated two back-channel phone calls with China’s top general promising to inform him if an attack on the Communist country were to commence.

 “You and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise,” Milley reportedly told his Chinese counterpart.

Senator Rand Paul became the second senator, after Marco Rubio (R-FL) to demand Milley’s removal for undermining the President of the United States and colluding with China. Senator Paul tweeted:

“I don’t care what you think of President Trump, the Chairman of the JCOS working to subvert the military chain of command and collude with China is exactly what we do not accept from military leaders in our country. He should be court martialed if true.

Couple that with his inept handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and it is clear General Milley is no longer fit to serve as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and should be removed immediately.”

Senator Marco Rubio had called for President Joe Biden to fire Milley in a letter:

“I write with grave concern regarding recent reporting that General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 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). These actions by General Milley demonstrate a clear lack of sound judgement, and I urge you to dismiss him immediately…

…Even more egregiously, reports indicate that General Milley interfered with the procedures by which the civilian commander-in-chief can order a nuclear strike. He purportedly instructed officials not to take orders without his involvement and forced them to take an oath to that effect. A senior military officer interfering with that civilian-controlled process is simply unacceptable at best, and at worst, would cause ambiguity which could lead to war.”

Additional politicians have taken to Twitter to demand action against Milley:
