jillian: officials say nothing is without in the case of missing women gabby petito as her boyfriend is a the person of interest with her father joins us with an update on the search effort. >> you are watching "fox and friends first" on thursday morning. jillian: a lot of news to get to. let's begin with this fox news alert, the white house stevens general mark millie as he faces accusations of treason over his calls to china. >> donald trump's acting different secretary tells fox news he did not authorize the controversial communication. griff jenkins joins us live in washington with the latest. jillian: sources so fox news two calls made by general millie were not secret and maybe 15 people in the room including takers and allocations millie offered to give his chinese counterpart heads up before launching his strike our fault. millie's spokesman colonel dave butler issued a statement saying, quote, his calls with chinese and others were in
2:02 am
keeping with duties and responsibilities convey reassurance to maintain strategic stability. at the white house president biden stood behind general millie. >> the general millie do the right thing? >> president biden: i have great confidence in general millie. >> the call for millie's resignation are growing as officials from the previous administration paint a different account, christopher miller tells i did not and would not ever authorize such conduct and john ratcliff had this to say. >> i can promise you i would have remembered that and it would have prompted a specific action by me that involved chairman millie and donald trump. unequivocally that didn't take place. >> reporter: donald trump is weighing in saying if the accusations are true, it is an act of treason, he put our country in a dangerous position.
2:03 am
millie is a complete nut job. at the pentagon talking treason was a bridge too far. >> donald trump, for him to save the allegations are true and the chairman should be put on trial for treason. >> oh my goodness! >> millie will have a chance to speak. he sits in the senate armed services committee, lloyd austin over the afghan withdrawal and these things really come up. >> but your bottom dollar it will. to give's point hearing september 20th will focus on afghanistan ten talking about afghanistan for the last month. there's a lot to unpack, they need to unpack but situations will get a lot of questions from republicans on the committee,
2:04 am
questions the american people deserve answers to. is sean hannity asking what we all want to know. >> the question is simple, was general millie, living with nancy pelosi, 39 to be president and second in line after vice president pence or as he now states was he just performing routine procedural training regarding a nuclear strike. if millie was colluding with policy to undermine the constitutional authority of the commander-in-chief and take away the president's ability to do his job as commander-in-chief, one of those jobs would be perhaps to launch a nuclear weapon he would then be guilty of the very definition of insurrection, that is the democrats favorite word. >> let's drill down, the american people deserve to see
2:05 am
transcript of the calls between millie and his chinese counterpart. did this violate the chain of command? that is a huge question. we need an answer to that question because that's not how our democracy, our nation, our government works. was pelosi usurping the president's authority because of the rage filled hatred of him, just because you don't like somebody doesn't mean you can go above them especially when he is the president and for a story with national security applications like this why did woodward and costa stick it out so long as we are battling china, the country in question on:don't they have an obligation to put their duty to the american people above profit from their pocket. >> a lot of questions remain unanswered and listen to what the media has to say on this. >> president biden saying he has great confidence in general mark really. >> america's top general taking political far but tonight president biden with a clear defense. the white house press secretary argued it is important to consider the timing. >> godless general millie for straightening things out. jillian: to be fair nothing has been streamed out exactly because we don't know the
2:06 am
answers to all those questions you laid out so let's wait for all of the answers before we say anything has been straightened out so an interesting take on this is senator john kennedy who says right now president biden is sticking by millie but says he wouldn't be surprised if that changed. >> i know president biden said he will stand behind and stands behind general millie and maybe that is true for the short term but i will give you even odds that eventually the white house throws them under the bus. because the white house desperately needs someone besides president biden on which to blame the stunning incompetence in afghanistan. jillian: at the end of the day the american people deserve to know the answers to this because this in addition to the fallout of what happened in afghanistan relates to our powers on the world stage and our relationship
2:07 am
with our allies which seemingly have been tarnished based on what happened in afghanistan but the result of that is still to be determined that this would add another layer to that. >> nancy mays, congress one from south carolina coming up later this hour and we will ask these questions and see she can give us some insight into what is going on in dc because this bears watching. with that about the 7 minutes after the hour. a fox news alert. police naming the boyfriend of missing woman gabby petito is a person of interest. >> carley shimkus is live outside his home as he refuses to answer questions. >> reporter: good morning. brian laundry and gabby petito were on a cross-country road trip they were documenting for the youtube series that on september 1st brian returned home alone and have been hiding out his parents house behind me. yesterday, northport police named am a person of interest in this case.
2:08 am
he is remaining tightlipped at the advice of his lawyer and police say that is not good enough. >> we went to the door saturday night, asked -- we were essentially and the information for their attorney. that is the extent of our conversation with them. >> reporter: police called this case odd and to see how odd it is here is a timeline of eventss. on july 2nd a couple left new york and set off on the cross-country road trip but on august 12th they were in utah and police responded to an altercation between the couple august 2, '05, the last communication with gabby week of september 1st, brian returned to florida in gabby's van without her. september 11th gabby's mom filed a missing person report. gabby's mother revealing what she was thinking.
2:09 am
>> the first couple days, i became concerned and figured she couldn't be off the grid for that long. >> reporter: as for the august 12th altercation it is getting a lot of attention and for good reason. a witness said he saw brian and gabby arguing over the phone and saw gabby hit brian in the arm climb through the driver-side window of the van. the police report says brian explain he and gabrielle have been traveling together four or five months, that time spent created emotional strain it increased the number of arguments and another thing is gabby's mom says she received a text message on august 30th, now mom is saying she doesn't believe the text message was
2:10 am
sent gabby. the text message said she was you 70 national park in california. the mom, nicole schmidt is saying it could have been sent by brian on gabby's phone to throw the family off her trail. >> the text read something like no service in you somebody but you hope investigators are able to somehow figure out where the text from, from cell phone towers but if they weren't in yosemite than where were they? they have to search all those towers. a lot of work they have to do. >> absolutely and to echo that point if they were in yosemite national park in california on august 30th, brian was here in florida on september 1st so he would have to drawn cross-country in a number of days. the timing is very interesting.
2:11 am
>> it is 10 minutes after the hour, two moderate democrats standing in the way of president biden's $3 trillion budget. if it passes joe concha predicted will be the last straw for voters. he will explain why next. we raise the rest of the money. >> tough stuff on the news today, this will put a smile on your face, used to walk to work every day, this amazing moment he was able to drive home. we will show it to you coming up.
2:12 am
2:13 am
2:14 am
2:15 am
common sense, public. >> blaming general millie as much as i blame donald trump. >> godless general millie for straightening things out. >> not reading the room on this one, media pundits defending general mark miller is accused of breaking the chain of command in calls he made to his chinese counterpart by donald trump's back. >> is facing call to resign because the former head the pentagon says his secret communication is not authorized. >> joe concha the would it be
2:16 am
considered common sense if telling me these calls during the biden administration? >> reporter: excellent rhetorical question. alexander bend been who isn't going to be invited to the next maga rally because he testified against the president during his first impeachment, he said if this is true general millie must resign. he usurped civilian authority for chain of command and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military. interestingly dangerous precedent. you simply can't walk away from that and he's not the only one saying this here. you you have a general who said i will surpass congress and the president, there for the american people and conduct his own foreign-policy there is no excusing this regardless what
2:17 am
you think - trump was elected, millie was not and here we are but i think it is a reflex with certain people put on tv, can't call them the media, i can't consider steve schmidt or george read the media, they are activists but we are because they are given a national platform and they do have to some extent some influence over the people they are watching. we too i serve under general m eld but everyone else is under general millie. jillian: let's pull up a statement from millie a spokesman saying these conversations with russia and china remain vital to mutual understanding of national security interests providing clarity and avoiding unintended consequences or conflict. is calls with the chinese and others in october in january in
2:18 am
keeping with these duties. do you see any reason we shouldn't be able to get transcripts from these calls? >> that is the thing. if transparency is the theme of this administration, let's hear what was said and not bob woodward and robert costa and what we see here i think is you have a general thought that in october, before the election he's making the phone calls, the chinese are supposed beginning the phone calls and saying would be give the us any phone calls if it look like anything was unstable over here, of course not. china is probably our biggest flow. we saw that with covid as we see that in the way they conduct themselves on a regular basis. they may control bag the ram air base and here we are talking to them as if they are a friend and

should be court-martialed for that this is a democracy and i don't care what you think of the president that you serve you don't subvert the chain of command or the authority of the united states president it's unbelievable what's happening right now. >> the white house is defending milley. this white house does not seem overly concerned about these concerns about chain of command. why do you think that is, congresswoman? >> well, i'm old enough to remember a certain phone call that democrats made a bunch of hay about just a few years ago. and if this is one phone call we all should learn more about and see the transcript it would be general milley phone call with china. we see this left and right politicizing every single event that's happening or situation or crisis that's happening to our country. and this is just the same. it's the same as always done in giving cover to general milley what president biden and his administration did this week it shouldn't matter who is in power. the standard should be the same for everybody and every administration. jillian: what should be done

with this in congress? >> well, we certainly should have an investigation and hold hearings. perhaps even a commission. general milley, if you look at his track record over the last few month, let's start with afghanistan just a few weeks ago with the botched exit, now this phone call and maybe we are hearing reports he may have even colluded with china, if these things are correct, he should immediately resign or be relieved from duty. and if the alleys are true, he obviously should be court-martialed. that's the very least we should be doing on a situation as serious of the allegations as serious as this one. todd: meantime congresswoman the border patrol finding a 2-year-old and a 3 month old, they were siblings, are siblings abandoned in the rio grande sector as the surge continues with migrant encounters topping more than 200,000 again in august. you just toured the border a few weeks ago. do these heart breaking images, ever, ever move your democratic colleagues in congress to do something? >>
