Susan Rice has no shame and proved it again in a stunning interview with Rachel Maddow last night. She actually said Mike Pompeo abused his office by giving a speech at the RNC.
The Hatch Act for anyone who cares is a relic that makes us pretend there is no politics in politics. It is an odd but not surprising, considering how bad the Dems are at politics, attack from the left.
“Secretaries of state are supposed to honor the principle that politics end at the water’s edge,” Susan Rice started.
“When you go overseas, as secretary or a junior Foreign Service officer, you’re representing the country, not a political party.”
“What Mike Pompeo is doing from Jerusalem is absolutely outrageous. It’s an abuse of his office.”
“It undermines the integrity of the State Department.”
“It violates his own rules that he promulgated and is holding every other official in the State Department to, but himself. “
“I wish I could say it was surprising. It’s a little bit outlandish.”
“But it’s all of a piece, Rachel, when you consider that under President Trump, the Justice Department has been politicized, the intelligence community has been politicized.”
“Every institution of the executive branch has been politicized. Mike Pompeo is carrying that flag very sadly tonight coming out of Jerusalem.”
She continued, “Mike Pompeo has been an overtly religious secretary of state, which in itself is problematic, because, again, he’s supposed to represent all of America, all of our religions, all of our threads but he takes this to Jerusalem.”
“And the real import of that is that it places Israel yet again under President Trump squarely in our domestic politics, which is not good for the United States, and it is not good for Israel.”
Susan Rice whines on MSNBC that "Mike Pompeo has been an overtly religious secretary of state, which in itself is problematic" and then blames the Trump administration — yes, she had the GALL to claim this — for making the U.S.-Israel relationship "political." #GOPConvention pic.twitter.com/24ysrfNNRv
