Report: The U.S. is Paying Millions to Protect Mike Pompeo from Iran

Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State, Trump Administration

The U.S. reportedly paying millions of dollars each month to protect former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and an aide from Iran.

The Daily Wire reports:

The State Department revealed in a report to Congress dated February 14 that the U.S. government is paying more than $2 million a month to provide security to Pompeo and former Iran envoy Brian Hook, according to the Associated Press. Both men were heavily involved in former President Donald Trump’s hardline pressure campaign against the Iranian regime.

News of the persistent threat to the men comes as President Joe Biden’s administration seeks to re-enter an agreement with Iran to drop U.S. sanctions and provide leeway for it to continue its nuclear program. Biden is attempting to resuscitate the Obama-era deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or Iran nuclear deal, after Trump pulled the U.S. out in 2018.

Pompeo received 180 days of security after leaving office under federal protocols, and that security detail has been renewed in 60-day increments since by Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Blinken also signed off on a special security detail for Hook.

Blinken has continually reupped the security details of Pompeo and Hook because of “a serious and credible threat from a foreign power or agent of a foreign power arising from duties performed by former Secretary Pompeo while employed by the department,” the report said, according to the Associated Press.

However, negotiations have recently stalled due to the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Russia was seen as a key partner in reviving the Iran nuclear deal.

  1. The point is, Biden is in bed with Russia and Iran and will bend over backwards to see that Russia destroys all evidence of the Biden’s criminal activity in Ukraine. And Biden is also making money in Iran. That is the point. Trump hampered Biden’s criminal activity overseas. That is why he was illegally impeached twice and cheated out of re-election by the crooked democrats.

    1. Now Putin is destroying the biolabs in Ukraine and exposing what they were doing in those labs. Putin has just taken apart the money laundering system of the Deep State. At some point the MSM will be exposed for their part in this with their lies.

      1. Yep but you will never see this from the Deep State and their advocate for the MSM propaganda machine

    2. I can assure you Putin is not in bed with the fake Biden. Putin is too busy removing the Cabal of which Biden was a deep dark part

  2. What is the difference in paying to keep a patriot safe or in paying to keep an ultra-liberal safe with taxpayer money (Cori Bush)?

  3. What exactly does the writer of this article want? Rather find out in Iran who is putting a bounty on the heads of these 2 men, and sort the people out threatening him or rather them? Why should he be vulnerable to terrorists? As for Biden re-negotiating with Iran, they whole Democratic party stinks

  4. Someone explain to me how security for one man, or two, can cost that much. It seems to me that would be an army of security guards.
