Breaking: Pompeo On Doomed Negotiations With Iran And Lab Leaks [Video]
According to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Joe Biden is doing what he does best— Waste taxpayer funds failed half-baked plans. Pompeo appeared on Trey Gowdy's show Sunday where he explained how negotiations with Iran are now and have always been doomed. He also shared his inside information about the lab leak in Wuhan China.
Pompeo began by explaining how Biden was set up for success by the previous administration but has already managed to screw that up for Americans, "We left a lot of leverage for this administration, a couple of thousand sanctions on the Iranian leaders and the economy. We built out a coalition of Gulf states and our friend and ally Israel, all work to keep containment on Iran to prevent them from having the money, the resources, all of the things we saw."
Pompeo added the leverage handed to Biden and how a weak Biden has no idea how to use it, "You remember when they flew pallets of cash to Iran a few years back. This administration was given an enormous amount of leverage to put pressure on the Iranians. You talked about the enrichment you can see they are firmly committed to putting pressure back on the United States so they will get more concessions at the table."
"Just this week they elected a fellow named Ebrahim Raisi as their new leader, Pompeo added. "He's got the blood of thousands of people on his hands. This is not someone we ought to be talking to. It's not a regime we should be engaged with. We ought to have the maximum pressure campaign to force this regime to change its behavior."
Later during the interview, Pompeo spoke about the COVID-19 virus and the leak from the Wuhan lab, "It's going to be difficult because the Chinese Communist Party doesn't want us to know what happened. They began to cover up at least by early January of 2020 for sure."
Pompeo said that CHina's days are numbered, "Someday there'll be some brave Chinese person sneak out with the documents, with the paperwork, with the logbook from the lab. Whatever it takes for us to know. I for myself have seen enough, the most likely case is it came from this laboratory, then the Chinese Communist Party covered it up. They were conducting bioweapons research there, this is really dangerous stuff. As far as I know, that lab is still operating, and so we should, Trey, it's your second question, we should use every tool available, and we have many. "
