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

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

Published

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.”

Amid a Flurry of Ums and Uhs, AG Nominee Merrick Garland Refuses to Say That Illegal Border Crossings Should Remain a Crime

What a hot mess.

Merrick Garland, who is President Joe Biden’s nomination for attorney general, refused to say that illegal border crossings should remain a crime.

His comments about the border came in response to a question from Sen. Josh Hawley at Garland’s confirmation hearing Monday.

“[I’d like to] talk a little bit more about the law enforcement challenges at the border, which I know a number of other members have brought up with you,” Hawley said. “Just a fundamental question: Do you believe that illegal entry at America’s borders should remain a crime?”

Garland responded as follows: “Well, I haven’t thought about that question. Uh, I just haven’t thought about that question. I think, you know, uh, the president has made clear that we are a country with borders and with a concern about national security. Um, I don’t know of a proposal to, uh, decriminalize but still make it unlawful to enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question. I haven’t thought about it.”

“Will you continue to prosecute unlawful border crossings?” Hawley asked.

Well, this is again, uh, a question of allocation of resources. Um, we will, uh, the department will, you know, prevent unlawful crossing. Um, I don’t know, you know, uh, I have to admit I just don’t know exactly what the conditions are and how this is done. I think if, um, um, I don’t know what the current program even is with respect to this. Um, so, I, I assume that the answer would be yes but I don’t know what [the conditions are],” Garland said.

Garland’s “hands off” approach to illegal immigration could form a crucial element of Biden’s “America Last” immigration policy, with federal law enforcement resources directed to left-wing policy priorities as waves of caravans infiltrate the porous borders.
