CNN published this video item, entitled “Trump and GOP accuse Gen. Milley of treason. Reporter urges them to read the book” – below is their description.

CNN’s Jamie Gangel reports that Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley consulted with former Defense Secretary Mark Esper and acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller before calling his Chinese counterpart about former President Donald Trump and 15 people were part of the call including a Trump State Department representative.

The Joint Chiefs chairman came under attack over new reporting in “Peril,” a forthcoming book by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, which details Milley’s phone conversations to reassure a nervous Chinese general and efforts Milley took to limit then-President Donald Trump from potentially ordering a dangerous military strike.

Milley’s actions, which were reported by CNN and others ahead of the book’s release next week, spawned sharp criticism of Milley from Trump and his allies, including calls for his resignation and that he be tried for treason.

Former NATO supreme allied commander Gen. Wesley Clark says that Milley should be praised for what he did.
