As Democrats erupted over what they called the Jan. 6 “insurgency” on Capitol Hill, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley quietly organized a plan similar in nature to the without the knowledge of former President Donald Trump, Laura Ingraham said on Tuesday.
“Today we learned the truth,” the Fox News host told viewers of “Ingraham Angle.” “There was indeed an insurgency going on in Washington, but it took place in the Pentagon. And the chief architect was General Mark Milley,” Ingraham said.
The prime-time host devoted her opening “Angle” to a report suggesting that Milley made two secret phone calls to General Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, her Chinese counterpart in the last days of the presidency of Trump without his knowledge.
Milley reportedly made the calls before the 2020 presidential election on October 30, 2020 and two days after the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill on January 8, 2021, assuring Zuocheng of the stability of the U.S. government. He also reportedly assured the Chinese general that he would contact him about any impending attack by the United States in the final days of the Trump administration.

The explosive report, which Bob Woodward of the Washington Post and national political reporter Robert Costa alleged in their upcoming book “Peril,” suggest that Milley “has settled down – an unelected officer, as the nation’s commander-in-chief,” Ingraham said.
“Milley was overseeing the mobilization of the US national security state without the knowledge of the American people or the rest of the world. Some might argue that Milley overstepped his authority, but he believes his actions were in good faith. make sure there was no disruption in the international order. No accidental war with China or others and no use of nuclear weapons, ”she scoffed. framing, yes, he may have violated both the military code and the constitution, but it was all in good faith. “

“As for his punishment,” she added, “he should be court-martialed and dishonorably fired for his role in what was much closer to the insurgency than anything we’ve seen on the 6th. January”.
