Rubio To Biden: Fire Milley For “Undermining” Trump

Via press release from Sen. Marco Rubio:

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent a letter to President Joe Biden calling on him to immediately fire Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley.

“I write with grave concern regarding recent reporting that General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, worked to actively undermine the sitting Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and contemplated a treasonous leak of classified information to the Chinese Communist Party in advance of a potential armed conflict with the People’s Republic of China (PRC),” Rubio wrote.

“These actions by General Milley demonstrate a clear lack of sound judgement, and I urge you to dismiss him immediately.”

“General Milley has attempted to rationalize his reckless behavior by arguing that what he perceived as the military’s judgement as more stable than its civilian commander,” Rubio continued.

“It is a dangerous precedent that could be asserted at any point in the future by General Milley or others. It threatens to tear apart our nation’s longstanding principle of civilian control of the military.”

“You must immediately dismiss General Milley. America’s national security and ability to lead in the world are at stake,” Rubio concluded.
