House Members Call for Military Probe of General Milley

If reports of his actions are true, they are unacceptable and “treasonous.”

Representative Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, a retired brigadier general in the U.S.  Army, and 26 other members of Congress sent a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin asking him to conduct an Article 15-6 investigation into General Mark Milley’s phone calls.

“We are gravely concerned with General (GEN) Mark Milley’s ability to exercise his duties and responsibilities as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In this recent case, our specific concerns involve reports from 14 September 2021, which indicate that GEN Milley blatantly disregarded the concept of civilian control of the military, and gave aid and comfort to America’s principal adversary, the Chinese Communist Party,” the legislators wrote. “We request a formal AR15-6 investigation to commence immediately with regard to these allegations.”

“To conspire with a communist, malfeasant, hostile, and genocidal government regarding our intentions — or lack thereof — with utter disregard to the implications of said ‘promise’ on our national security or our Service Members, is nothing short of craven (at best) and treasonous,” the letter stated.

They also commented on the reporting by the corporate media, who have presented “this story as if America were rendered a great service by GEN Milley, as if he simply were trying to ward off the supposedly unpredictable behavior of the elected president of the United States.”

“To be clear, however, if Mr. Woodward’s account is true, GEN Milley’s pledge to China is nothing less than outright treason,” the letter continues.

In a separate statement, Representative Perry said, “No matter how many stars are on your shoulders, you’re never above your oath to support and defend the Constitution.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of Congress and the Defense Department who may take up investigations into the allegations made against General Mark Milley.
  • For the truth to be revealed regarding U.S. government officials who have acted against the best interests of America.
