Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper Ordered ‘Backchannel’ Message To China Indicating Trump Would Not Attack: Report

Former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper reportedly ordered a “backchannel” message to reassure China the United States would not be seeking military action in the days leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

News of Esper’s actions come as General Mark Milley has been accused by former President Donald Trump of ‘treason’ for allegedly having said he would warn China if the United States planned to conduct a military strike this past October.

  1. I have a tough time imagining Erwin Rommel doing the same to Patton.
    Eisenhower and Westmoreland, sure.
    Not Rommel.

    1. Well said. Rommel was an honorable man.

    2. Rommel worked for literally Hitler. Your sense of honor needs inspection.

  2. 1. We arent at war with China. Diplomatic communications are normal.
    2. It was totally open that none of Trump's appointments were trustworthy and they ALL tried to indermine him wherever they could.
    3. There was never any possibility of Trump "going postal" his last few days in office. Only democrats feared this. So it wasnt "dishonorable" to tell foreign powers that the apacalypse was NOT comming.
