Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave his take on the accusations in the path of General Milley on ‘Hannity,’ saying that if the dialog between Milley and his Chinese counterpart did happen, China would “use that to their advantage.”  

MIKE POMPEO: We ought to make it possible for we, as quickly as we’re ready to, uncover out if Gen. Milley spoke to Woodward himself. We ought to uncover out if Gen. Milley is ready to testify, we’re ready to do it tomorrow or the subsequent day to get readability about what Gen. Milley talked about. I don’t know the DOD’s safety on whether or not or not or not there could possibly be a transcript of this cellphone title, nonetheless I promise you there have been note-takers in the room. I’m very assured that dialog may most likely be reconstructed. 

If you had a senior navy chief who was merely an advisor inform the Chinese Communist Party that they may get uncover of an assault, this rivals one factor now now we have seen in our nation’s historic earlier. Only the President of the United States has the performance to make these selections, and I’d be shocked if the then-acting Secretary of Defense gave him any authority to even ponder that very dialog.

You know, I give it some thought may presumably be [treasenous]. It would undoubtedly be exhibiting in a way that— you had been knowingly exhibiting in a way that was inconsistent with the largest pursuits of the United States authorities. Certainly, the authority that you simply simply had as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff—  I can say that with absolute certainty. We know this too: If that dialog occurred you’ve been speculating about what the Chinese Communist Party would suppose. I can inform you, they may have used that to their revenue. They would have discovered a way to inflict a worth on the United States of America. I hope this didn’t occur the methodology it’s described in Woodward’s e e guide. I can solely say that we need to get to the bottom of this merely as quickly as possible.
