Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted Senator Diane Feinstein (D-California) for her praise of China.
Feinstein has close ties to China and has consistently worked to get China in the favorable light of the US government.
According to The Daily Wire:
“Maria, I saw the statement from Senator Feinstein. I found it perplexing,” Pompeo responded. “I saw statements from senior American CEOs of the big tech companies this week saying they hadn’t heard or seen about intellectual property theft in the United States. That’s — that’s crazy talk.”
“I mean, I was particularly struck by Dianne Feinstein, because didn’t she have a driver for 20 years that we ended up finding out was a Chinese spy?” Bartiromo later pressed.
“You will recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too,” Pompeo responded. “There’s something not quite right.”
“I mean, and this is not consistent — this is not consistent with America’s national security,” Pompeo continued. “In either case, these are adversaries that intend harm for the citizens of her state of California. And I wish that she would not engage in this kind of rhetoric and these kind of meetings that undermine America’s efforts.”
Pompeo made it unequivocal that he believes her actions undermine America’s national security interests.
