America ‘Can’t Survive Treason from Within’: US Lawmakers Demand Article 15-6 Investigation of General Milley
U.S. lawmakers are demanding that the Pentagon open an Article 15-6 investigation into the actions of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley for reported conduct suggesting that he committed high treason.
The Department of Defense was notified of the lawmakers’ demands for an investigation into General Milley’s activities both prior to the November election and after the January 6 riot. Milley essentially confirmed in a statement that he twice contacted Chinese General Li Zuocheng, which follows reporting from Bob Woodward and Bob Costa in their forthcoming book “Peril.” The book relates that Milley promised the Chinese general that he would give the CCP a ‘heads up’ if the United States intended to attack under then Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump. The second call Milley made to General Li on January 8th was unauthorized, according to former Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller.
“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 lawmakers wrote. “We request a formal AR 15-6 Investigation commence immediately with regard to these allegations.”
The demand for an investigation was spearheaded by Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA), who has a background with more than 38 years of U.S. Army service. He provided the Daily Caller with a statement on his rationale for the investigation into General Milley.
“It’s said a nation can survive its fools, but it can’t survive treason from within. Sadly for America, we’re infested with both, and it’s time to start cleaning house before it’s too late,” Perry said “No matter how many stars are on your shoulders, you’re never above your oath to support and defend the Constitution, and all those who break it must be held accountable. This investigation will ensure the truth is told and oaths have been upheld.”
On Wednesday, President Biden said that he has “great confidence in General Milley,” despite the reports of actions that would amount to high treason. General Milley has denied wrongdoing and is claiming that his phone calls amount to routine discussions between military leaders.
