A recent segment on Fox News recently raised the question of how things appear to America’s adversaries in light of the latest allegations against former President Donald Trump in the case involving the sensitive materials and the ongoing discussion in the House about a potential impeachment investigation of President Joe Biden?
On America’s Newsroom, guest co-host Sandra Smith presented the query to Mike Pompeo, a former CIA director and Trump-era secretary of state.
“What are the bad guys out there thinking about what is happening here in America right now?” Smith asked.
“I thought about exactly that. Our friends around the world are saying what on Earth is going on in the United States, how much chaos can be tolerated from the world’s most important country? And our adversaries are thinking this might just be the moment, the moment to press our claims somewhere in the South China Sea or in Asia, our moment to press an advantage somewhere in Africa or the Middle East as well.” Pompeo said.
“This has repercussions that go far beyond just the politics and the set of votes that might take place in 2024 or even just a particular case. This has real global ramifications for those people who are tasked with keeping us safe, our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines. It’s really troubling.” he continued.
