White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday didn’t rule out President Donald Trump naming Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to serve as his new national security advisor, noting that former President Richard Nixon’s national security advisor had also served as his secretary of state at the same time.
“I believe Secretary of State Pompeo is doing an excellent job over at State and that he will, of course, have input into who the next [National Security Council] head is as well. There are many people of diverse backgrounds, all solid candidates, I know first-hand the president is considering for that position,” Conway said during an interview on Fox News.
But Conway refused to name anyone in particular. “In the end, it’s his foreign policy national security agenda that needs to be executed and implemented. This president has been transparent and successful in terms of communicating directly with the public what he sees as bad actors around the world that he met with.”
Conway was also asked if Pompeo was being considered.
“That’s something that Presidents Nixon and Ford did with Henry Kissinger, of course,” Conway responded. “It wouldn’t be unprecedented… Clearly the Secretary of State has the president’s ear and his trust and has been making great strides in implementing the president’s agenda around the globe and he will continue to be a very important strong voice here as America’s top diplomat.”
Conway’s comments came as the House Judiciary Committee was holding a hearing to define the rules of the panel’s impeachment investigation.

Trump flip-flops on meeting with Iran with ‘no preconditions’– then blames it on the media
President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.
"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.
In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.
“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”
Internet fears Trump’s ‘locked and loaded’ tweet about oil field bomb means he’s gearing up for war with Iran
the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."
"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.
3 out of 9 companies in one state have filed for bankruptcy since Trump promised to ‘bring back coal’
President Donald Trump's promises to coal miners have fallen along with his other broken campaign promises. Another state is facing the harsh reality that Trump is not riding in on a white horse to save them.
According to Axios, three out of the nine coal companies in the Powder River Basin in northeastern Wyoming have filed for bankruptcy and another two companies are consolidating. Kentucky coal miners have been protesting Blackjewl, which filed for bankruptcy in July, withdrawing payroll dollars from miners' accounts. Little has been heard about the Wyoming workers as those companies crumble, however.
