Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has claimed GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger has “repeatedly” asked for a post in the Trump administration.
Pompeo made the comment while responding to comments from Kinzinger on the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“Don’t let my colleagues pretend today that Trump and Pompeo didn’t initiate the disengagement from Afghanistan. They did it,” said Kinzinger tweeted on Tuesday. “I knew Pompeo at the house. He was a hawk on Afghanistan until Trump. He knew better, he owns it too. Trump Pompeo and Biden are all to blame.”
pompeo served as Secretary of State during part of former President Donald Trump’s tenure. Before assuming this role, Pompeo was CIA Director. He had previously served as the Kansas Legislature in the US House of Representatives.
On Thursday, Pompeo tweeted“@adamkinzinger has repeatedly asked me for a job in the Trump Administration (Air Force Sec, Amb) and for a wife. Now our Afghan plan is attacking, which saw no US deaths/no Taliban takeover/no Americans left behind. Adam, I’ve enjoyed our work in Congress. What happened to you? YOU should know better.”
The Biden administration was widely criticized last year for botching the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
in one expression Last year, Kinzinger had concerns about the withdrawal of American troops. “I have said countless times that withdrawing our troops emboldens our enemies and puts our allies in grave danger. And yet both President Trump and President Biden made their announcements — they broadcast to our enemies that we were going and told our allies around the world that we had given up.”
Kinzinger was one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach then-President Trump last year after the Jan. 6 riots, and he is one of the two GOP representatives who sit in the House committee created to investigate the episode.
