After a 2015 interview went viral many are starting to ask who does General Mark Milley really work for?
During the interview General Milley said “China is not the enemy” and then ranted about how powerful the communist country is.

At the time, Milley was the Army Chief of Staff and he sounded more like a lobbyist for the Chinese Communist Party than a United States top commander.
The White House is claiming that Milley’s plot against Trump was within his duties despite acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller – who was Milley’s boss at the time – saying he did not authorize Milley to have any talks with China.
“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is the highest-ranking military officer whose sole role is providing military-specific advice to the president, and by law is prohibited from exercising executive authority to command forces,” Miller said. “The chain of command runs from the President to the Secretary of Defense, not through the Chairman.”
This all has a similar drip, drip, drip we saw occur with Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York. Cuomo couldn’t be forced to resign over his coronavirus policy because that would have exposed the Democrats politicizing the pandemic. So over the a period of months Democrats slowly created a sex scandal that in the end forced Cuomo out of office.
The same goes for Milley, he can’t go down for Afghanistan because that would bring down Joe as well. For now, the White House has his back but don’t be surprised when Biden orders another drone strike killing that kills an aid workers family that Milley gets the boot.
