Oh, this is going to make you all smile bigly. When Donald Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, he nominated CIA Chief Mike Pompeo to take his place. Now, Pompeo is going to have to go through another Senate confirmation hearing and he has reached out to Hillary Clinton for help. According to Politico:
As a sharply partisan Republican member of Congress, CIA Director Mike Pompeo tormented former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her response to the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, which Pompeo called “morally reprehensible.” He also once liked a tweet that branded her successor, John Kerry, a “traitor.”
But now that Pompeo faces a tough confirmation process to become secretary of state himself, he has reached out to Clinton and Kerry, as well as every other living occupant of the office, to ask for guidance. Clinton, for one, has been willing to help.
Sorry, lost control there for a second.
Anyway, so Pompeo, who basically told America that Hillary Clinton’s incompetence caused the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi is asking for help to get confirmed so that he can serve the Trump Administration. The Trump Administration needs Hillary’s help AND she is willing to help them because she is a good person.
Politico reports that Pompeo has been cramming nonstop for his confirmation hearing. Apparently, he wants to be prepared for any question the Senate throws at him. Strange, right? A member of the Trump Administration who actually wants to learn his job? Whoa.
It’ll be interesting to see if Trump has a hissy fit about his CIA Director reaching out to his arch nemesis. My guess is that he is not going to be very happy about it.
