Washington post journalists. Bob woodward and robert costa say that. Millie called his counterpart in china. General lee junk chang in october and again on january eighth because he was quote fearful trump might spark war. Milly spokesperson said the communications. Were part of milley's normal duties to quote maintain strategic stability. Well the former guy told the right wing propaganda television channel newsmax that millie's actions if true amounted to quote treason. No it's not treason and thankfully many other generals are coming out for claiming their support for what milly did as well. The additional reporting confirms that.

They also cited intimidation by the sport's governing body. usa olympics. simone biles was the first to speak to be clear. I blame larry nassar.

Goodman department store fitting room in manhattan the former guy said that carroll wasn't his type and accused her of making up the story to sell her book. Oh please well.
