Sen. Rand Paul said that allegations that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff  Gen. Mark Milley told Chinese officials that he would warn them if the U.S. was planning an attack during Donald Trump’s presidency, should be investigated and possibly be court-martialed.

Paul made his comments during an interview on Fox News on Wednesday.

Sen. Paul On Speaks Out

“It should be investigated immediately, today, he should be questioned under oath, if not with a polygraph test, on whether it happened,” Paul told Fox News.

The senator continued, “If it happened, he should be immediately relieved of his duties and court-martialed.”

“You have to find out if it’s true,” Paul added. “This is innuendo and rumor and propaganda perhaps. But, if it is true he absolutely immediately needs to be removed.  

Paul Talks With Glenn Beck

Sen. Paul made similar comments on Wednesday during an interview with conservative talk host Glenn Beck.

“Gen. Milley needs to be called in TODAY and asked under polygraph what he said to China,” Paul told Beck.

Paul had tweeted on Tuesday evening, “I don’t care what you think of President Trump, the Chairman of the JCOS working to subvert the military chain of command and collude with China is exactly what we do not accept from military leaders in our country.”

“He should be court martialed if true,” Paul added.
