Former Obama administration Defense Secretary Leon Panetta appeared to admit that he was involved with General Mark Milley’s secret phone calls to Communist China behind President Trump’s back.
Panetta claimed to The Hill on Sunday that Milley’s first phone call to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) military warning them if they’d attack had the approval of the Pentagon.
“The first phone call was pursuant to the approval of [Defense] Secretary [Mark] Esper, and I think that certainly makes that clear as to what General Milley was doing,” Panetta said.

Panetta went on to justify Milley’s secret phone calls by claiming Trump “was appointing political people to key positions at the Defense Department.”
“And it was coming at a time when there was a tremendous amount of concern about the role of the military,” he said.
In an apparent admission to being involved with Milley’s call, Panetta said he was “concerned” Trump was appointing people he didn’t like and didn’t know what he would do regarding the stolen 2020 presidential election.
“Every secretary of defense signed a letter that indicated that it was very important that the military not be used for political purposes, and we were concerned about what the president might do.”
The Deep State former secretaries of defense penned the letter Panetta referred to warning Trump not to get the military involved with his grievances surrounding the stolen 2020 presidential election.
Former Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller confirmed he “did not and would not ever authorize” Milley’s phone calls to China.
But Fox News reported that Esper and “15 people,” including private citizens like Panetta, were privy to the secret phone call.
Trump had said last week that if Milley’s phone call to China as described in Bob Woodward’s book “Peril” actually took place, then it amounts to treason.
“So first of all if it is actually true, which is hard to believe, that he would have called China and done these things and was willing to advise them of an attack or in advance of an attack, that’s treason,” Trump told Newsmax.

“I assume he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have been dealing with his Chinese counterpart behind the President’s back and telling China that he would be giving them notification ‘of an attack,’” he added in a statement.
