Pompeo on Iran: Kerry, Moniz 'Acting in Ways That Are Harmful to What's Best' for America
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sat Wednesday for an interview with Laura Ingraham on "The Ingraham Angle."
Ingraham questioned Pompeo on a wide range of topics.
"Secretary Kerry can't seem to get off the stage," Pompeo told Ingraham. "It's one thing to meet with your counterpart, it’s another thing to do what Secretary Kerry, Wendy Sherman, Ernest Moniz, frankly the whole gang has done, which is to actively seek to undermine what President Trump is trying to achieve."
Pompeo added that when he is the "former" secretary of state, he will "get off [the stage]," unlike Kerry.
Ingraham also asked Pompeo whether he supports calls for the Justice Department to investigate whether his predecessor, John Kerry, violated federal law by meeting with Iranian officials.
"I'll leave the legal action to others. I'm trying to execute America's foreign policy," he said.
Pompeo said Kerry, Moniz and others are "acting in ways that are harmful to achieving what's best for the American people."
Ingraham also asked the former Kansas congressman about his department's announcement that it will lower the amount of refugees allowed into the U.S. to its lowest level in decades.
Pompeo also responded to reports that there is a "resistance" movement within the State Department to stymie the Trump administration's priorities.
Pompeo has been the top diplomat conducting negotiations with the North Koreans for the past several months.
Ingraham also asked Pompeo to react to reports Kim Jong Un's regime continues to build nuclear weapons despite the rogue nation's denials.
Regarding China, Pompeo will be asked about how corporations act one way in America and another in Beijing.
