Watch: General Miley Finally Has An Answer For Resignation Push

General Mark Milley, the top U.S. military officer, on Tuesday harshly backed calls with his Chinese counterpart that have put Republican demands for his leave, saying he had been trying to reduce tension with Beijing and not to "usurp authority."

"At no time was I attempting to change or influence the process, usurp authority, or insert myself into the chain of command," Milley told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

"I know, I am certain, that President [Donald] Trump did not intend on attacking the Chinese," Milley said.
