CNN and MSNBC defend Gen. Milley contacting China's top general with concerns about Trump

 CNN and MSNBC had guests and analysts who defended Milley’s actions.

"I believe Milley would do that. Did he do it? That remains to be seen, but I know that general. And his role as chief of staff is that he would call a meeting, given the concerns of an unhinged president at that period of time," Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., said on CNN. 

CNN analyst Jaime Gangel argued in favor of Miley saying "Milley may be criticized for what some may think was overstepping his authority, but according to Woodward & Costa he felt he couldn’t trust Trump and that he needed to take any and all necessary precautions to prevent him from doing something dangerous."

"What [Milley] did was ensure the guardrails were in place. So I give him high marks for this based on what’s described in the book," CNN analyst Mark Hertling added.

MSNBC analyst Ret. Gen. Barry McCaffrey said, "It’s part of the deterrence of unwanted combat. I think he felt it important to not end up with a World War I start of a war through miscalculation on the part of the Chinese. So again, I think we ought to be fortunate we got this Princeton grad, tremendous combat officer, extremely intelligent, law-based trying to safeguard the transition to a duly-elected President Biden administration."

Milley has not yet publicly commented on the report.
