Mike Pompeo RIPS Bolton For “Outright Falsehoods” In Book: “Traitor”

The Secretary of State didn’t hold back on the turncoat.



Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a scathing press release responding to claims made by fired White House National Security Advisor John Bolton in his new book, calling the disgruntled former administration official a “traitor.”

Among a set of other sensational claims Trump administration officials have pointed to as little more than puerile gossip from an attention-seeking turncoat, Bolton had claimed that Pompeo was secretly opposed to President Trump. The longtime neoconservative and ultra-hawkish political operative had claimed that Pompeo passed a note to Bolton during an international conference with North Korea calling President Trump “full of s***.”

President Trump himself has declined to hold back on Bolton, who is making the rounds as a newly invented liberal talk show personality after being drummed out of the Trump administration. Bolton’s routine advocacy of new Middle East wars had never fit in concisely with President Trump’s America First foreign policy vision, and the President has been keen to point it out in response to Bolton’s convenient criticism.

It was only a matter of time until a committed neoconservative such as Bolton, who originally served in the Bush administration, took his place on the Left and abandoned any pretense of support for the President in return for lucrative book deals and cable news appearances on MSNBC. Other Republicans have taken Bolton to task for his warmongering advocacy, questioning why President Trump even hired such an unreliable advisor to begin with.

In light of Bolton’s realignment to the establishment left, the Trump administration must carefully reconsider personnel hirings of discredited foreign policy “experts.”

Republicans had declined to stand up against the drive to purge the names of iconic American military installations such as Fort Bragg and Fort Benning, with only populist conservative Josh Hawley offering opposition to the cultural cleansing attempt when it passed through the Democrat-controlled Senate Armed Services Committee.

Polling conducted on the matter reveals that a strong majority of the American public opposes purging the names of the bases from record because of their association with the Confederacy.

There are ten total U.S. Army bases named after Confederate military leaders, most of them located in the southern United States and named as such as a gesture of reconciliation to the South in the Reconstruction period and beyond.
