White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed calls from GOP congressmen to fire Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley, following reports that Milley phoned his counterpart in China during the final months of the Trump administration to say he would provide a personal warning before the U.S. attacked China.

“I don’t think the president is looking for the guidance of members of Congress who stood by as the leader of their party fomented an insurrection,” Psaki said at a press conference on Wednesday.

President Biden also expressed support for Milley in comments to reporters on Wednesday.

“I have great confidence in General Milley,” Biden said.
