Mark Milley set to be executed on live TV, says GOP congressional candidate Noah Malgeri
Republican congressional candidate Noah Malgeri called for General Mark Milley to be executed live on television for treason in an interview earlier in December.
Republicans previously accused Milley, who chairs the Joint Chiefs of Staff, of treason after the Washington post reported a phone call he allegedly made to Chinese General Li Zuocheng in October 2020 and January 2021 to reassure Li that the United States would not attack China.
Malgeri echoed these criticisms in a December 7 interview with the Veterans in Politics group, adding that he believes the execution could be a potential punishment for Milley’s alleged crimes.
He rejected calls for a congressional commission to investigate the alleged crimes because “all the evidence is available.”
“Just call a general court martial and forget about a congressional hearing. Call a general court martial, try him for the crimes,” Malgeri said.
He then discussed what would happen if Milley was found guilty.
“We have to go back to our patriotic and freedom-loving roots. What did they do to the traitors if they were convicted in court? They would execute them. It’s still the law in the United States of America. I think, you. know, if he’s guilty of it by court martial, they should hang him on CNN. I mean, they’re not gonna do it on CNN. But on C-SPAN or something, “he said. said.
News week has contacted the Malgeri campaign for comment.
Malgeri is located in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, a swing neighborhood made up of parts of Las Vegas and its suburbs. The district is currently represented by Democrat Susie Lee. President Joe Biden also carried the district in 2020.
Ahead of the mid-terms of 2022, the Cook political report classifies the district as a “Lean Democrat,” meaning it is seen as competitive but one party has an advantage. Malgeri also faces competition in the GOP primary as several other Republicans entered the race.
He was supported by Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar, who praised him as “the only true ‘America First’ candidate” standing in the district.
Milley reportedly called Li over concerns about the mental state of former President Donald Trump. The conversation was reportedly sparked off by a call with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who told her, “You know [Trump’s] crazy.”
Trump also released a statement criticizing Milley in September. He wrote that if the story were true, “I guess he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have dealt with his Chinese counterpart behind the president’s back and told China he would give them an “attack” notification. I can’t do this! “
Florida Senator Marco Rubio accused Milley of working “to actively undermine the acting Commander-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces and envisioned a betrayal of classified information leaked to the Communist Party of China ahead of a potential armed conflict with the Republic. people of China. “
