“The View” co-host Abby Huntsman busted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for hypocrisy on congressional oversight, now that the shoe is on his foot.
The State Department blocked EU ambassador Gordon Sondland from testifying Tuesday before Congress, but the conservative Huntsman called out Pompeo — who led the charge against Hillary Clinton when she held the job he’s in now.
“All I want is consistency,” Huntsman said. “Are you for your political party or what’s in the best interest of this country?”
Huntsman rolled a clip of Pompeo speaking about the Benghazi investigation in 2016, when he was in Congress.
“This is not the first congressional inquiry in the history of America,” Pompeo said at the time. “I dare you to go find another congressional inquiry where one party behaved in a way that was so deeply obstructive of getting the American people the facts that they needed.”
Huntsman was flabbergasted.
“Do people not think we can find — is there a difference?” she said.
The View’s audience boos Mick Mulvaney’s confession — and laughs when he denies video evidence
The audience on "The View" reacted in anger and then mockery to White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's confession to Ukraine quid pro quo -- and then his denial of what he plainly said on video.
President Donald Trump's chief staffer admitted during a press briefing that the White House held up congressionally approved aid to Ukraine as leverage to get the foreign ally to investigate a debunked conspiracy theory.
"We do that all the time with foreign policy, and I have news for everybody," Mulvaney told reporters. "Get over it. There is going to be political influence in foreign policy."
Trump flayed for self-pitying whine about how hard it is being president: ‘Resign — you won’t be missed’
President Donald Trump on Friday bitterly complained about the purported ill treatment he's received as president of the United States.
In an angry tweet, the president bemoaned having to deal with House Democrats' impeachment inquiry at the same time he's trying to do unspecified "important work" for the United States.
"Can you believe I am doing this important work for our Country, and have to deal with Corrupt Adam Schiff and the Do Nothing Democrats at the same time?" the president wrote. "It was not intended to be this way for a President!"
Can you believe I am doing this important work for our Country, and have to deal with Corrupt Adam Schiff and the Do Nothing Democrats at the same time? It was not intended to be this way for a President!
Chris Wallace goes off on Trump’s Turkey debacle: ‘Is this a ceasefire or a surrender?’
Despite Vice President Mike Pence's announcement that he and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had brokered a ceasefire in the wake of Turkey's invasion of northeast Syria, fighting is still going on in the region. On America's Newsroom this morning, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace was asked by fellow anchor Sandra Smith why the fighting hasn't ceased.
While pointing out that ceasefires in Syria historically "have not done very well," Wallace wondered if "this is a ceasefire or is this a surrender that's been negotiated by the US."
