Trump and GOP accuse Gen. Milley of treason. Reporter urges them to read the book


CNN’s Jamie Gangel reports that Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley consulted with former Defense Secretary Mark Esper and former acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller before he called his Chinese counterpart about former President Donald Trump, and that 15 people were part of the call including a Trump State Department representative.
The Joint Chiefs chairman has since come 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.
Former NATO supreme allied commander Gen. Wesley Clark tells Anderson Cooper that Milley should be praised for what he did.
