“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin provided an apology to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley for suggesting his telephone calls to China within the remaining months of the Trump presidency amounted to “treason.”
After it was first reported in “Peril” that Milley referred to as his Chinese counterpart and guaranteed him that the U.S. would not assault China and promised to warn the CCP in the event that they did, Hostin scolded the now-top Biden official.

“I think that you break command in that way. You are committing treason. You’re going outside of the chain of command,” Hostin mentioned. “I worked for the government for many years and it is sacrosanct to go within the chain of command.”
“I think there’s just no excuse for a silent coup, which I think that’s what that is,” she later added.
Despite the criticism and the requires his resignation he had obtained, Milley remained defiant throughout his testimony to each Senate and House lawmakers this week, insisting he was following protocol and that a number of members of the Trump administration have been conscious of his communications with China.
On Wednesday, Hostin took a second to precise remorse for her earlier remarks.

“I was pretty harsh in my judgment of him because I even thought it was treasonous,” Hostin mentioned. “My understanding was that he backchanneled with China and he spoke directly to China without approval, but that wasn’t so.”
“And I really need to judge myself in that because I should know better at this point… I should have had more information and I acted upon limited information,” she added.
After summarizing Milley’s protection to lawmakers, Hostin mentioned, “I owe him an apology because he didn’t act rogue and that was very important- it’s important for me to acknowledge but it’s important that he maintained the military command.”
Co-host Sara Haines, who equally joined Hostin in calling out Milley when the Bob Woodward-Robert Costa reporting for got here out, agreed with Hostin’s reassessment of the controversy, telling her “You’re right.”
“It cleared a lot up,” Haines mentioned.
