The State Department has hired notoriously anti-Trump Mary Kissel. Kissel formerly was a member of the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board where she did not hide her anti-Trump views.

According to The Daily Wire:

The U.S. State Department has hired former anti-Trump Wall Street Journal editorial board member Mary Kissel to be Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s new senior adviser for policy and strategic messaging.

The recent hire has alarmed former administration officials, including one who told Politico that "Trump would lose his mind if he knew about this."

Another former administration official said that hiring Kissel was "a recipe for disaster" because it's "a welcome sign to all never-Trumpers and establishment Republicans that they have a home in this administration."

"It’s a political mutiny," a source close to the First Family told The Daily Wire. "John Kelly and his cronies go out of their way to make sure that Trump people don’t get hired while the Kissels of the world are handed important jobs. The president has lost control of this ship."

The State Department has issued a statement that Kissel strongly supports many of the president's policies and that she is proud to serve Secretary Pompeo of President Trump.

Her anti-Trump stance did soften when Trump won the election. Here are some of her tweets expressing her anti-Trump stance:
  Trump has also previously called out Kissel for her anti-Trump stance:
  Apparently, there has been a change in heart that has allowed Kissel to join the administration. But judging by past views this is a questionable hire.
