Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa are making waves with excerpts of their upcoming book, Peril, . The book claims Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley vowed to warn China if the Trump administration were to plan a military strike against the country.
Peril goes into depth about specifically two secret phone calls that took place between Milley and General Li Zuocheng during the end of President Trump’s term.
The first call was on October 30th, 2020, four days before the election. This call was allegedly prompted by an intelligence review due to China’s heavy suspicion the US was preparing a military strike. The book says Milley assured General Li that the American government was stable and no attack was planned, but if things change he would warn Li.
The second call took place on January 8th of this year. Peril says Milley tried to ease China’s concerns about the US governments potential instability after the riot at the Capitol on January 6th. Milley supposedly promised Li that there would be a peaceful transition of power between Trump and Biden. After that phone call it’s reported Milley then urged the commander of the US Indo-Pacific Command to postpone any US military exercises in that region.
Trump was unaware of these conversations.
Woodward and Costa’s “Peril” will be out September 21st.
The question in all of this is this believable? Is Milley guilty of treason? Listen to Tony Katz reviews here:
