Maria Bartiromo interviewed Secretary of State Pompeo yesterday on Sunday Morning Futures. The attention has been on Feinstein’s remarks that China is a swell guy.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) said that China is “growing into a respectable nation” and cautioned against holding the country accountable for its role in the worldwide coronavirus outbreak.
But the headline that should be is Pompeo alluding to China’s interference with our elected congressmen. It even gets better.
“There’s something not quite right.”
He outs her many meetings with Iran’s foreign minister:
“You’ll recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too.”
“Don Trump Jr. has a meeting with a couple of Russians, meeting turns out to nothing, and it’s the crime of the century. Except Mueller says it’s not, but the media says it is. You have Dianne Frankenfeinstein on her damn cell phone with the foreign minister of Iran! Anybody want to know what they discussed? ‘No, no, that’s Dianne, we like her,’” Levin said.
Maria Bartiromo asked Pompeo about Senator Feinstein’s driver, a Chinese spy, who worked for the California senator for 20 years. This after the past week of Senator Feinstein praising the Chinese Communist regime.
Pompeo dropped the big bomb on Feinstein and the interference of China on U.S. elections- add the Iran foreign minister:
Mike Pompeo: We did. You’ll recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too.
I moved the clip to about 4:50 and that portion ends at about 8:40, however the full interview is well worth taking the time.
Mike Pompeo: Maria I saw the statement by Senator Feinstein, I found it perplexing. I saw statements of senior American CEOs from the big tech companies this week saying they hadn’t heard or seen about intellectual property theft from the United States. That’s crazy talk. Here’s the good news. The good news is we’re getting nearly every member of Congress aligned along the administration’s policies with China. When we voted for Hong Kong freedom there were over 400 votes in the House and nearly every vote in the Senate… I think the tide is turning. Not only in the United States but all across the world the threat of the Chinese Communist Party is becoming clearer and clearer… I talked at the Nixon Library about this not being a battle about China but about authoritarianism and freedom. That’s the fight America needs to be engaged on…
Maria Bartiromo: I was struck by Dianne Feinstein because didn’t she have a driver for 20 years that we ended up finding out was a Chinese spy?
Mike Pompeo: We did. You’ll recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too. There’s something not quite right. And this is not consistent with America’s national security in either case. These are adversaries that intend harm for her state of California and I wish she would not engage in this kind of rhetoric and these kind of meetings that undermine these kind of efforts.
