(Worthy News) – The former chief on Wednesday said he did not authorize Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to directly contact ’s top commander – contrary to Milley’s claims that his conversations with Beijing were approved by defense officials.

Christopher Miller, who was Donald Tump’s acting Secretary of Defense at the time of the calls, said he “did not and would not ever authorize” the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to hold “secret” conversations with the Chinese defense chief. In a statement to Fox , Miller said the alleged calls were a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination.” Miller added that the chairman should resign “immediately.”

Milley acknowledged in a Wednesday statement that he made the calls, describing them as both standard procedure and above board, claiming that they were consistent with his duties to convey “reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability.” The alleged reassurances were to assuage Chinese fears about America’s stability, according to reports.
