When former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat down for an 11-hour interview with Congress, a significant portion of that interview was taken up by a man with a shit-eating grin who repeatedly asked Clinton the same questions in a failed effort to fluster her.
That man was Mike Pompeo.
According to Politico, Pompeo is now asking Hillary Clinton and others for advice ahead of his confirmation hearing.
As a sharply partisan Republican member of Congress, CIA Director Mike Pompeo tormented former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her response to the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, which Pompeo called “morally reprehensible.” He also once liked a tweet that branded her successor, John Kerry, a “traitor.”
But now that Pompeo faces a tough confirmation process to become secretary of state himself, he has reached out to Clinton and Kerry, as well as every other living occupant of the office, to ask for guidance. Clinton, for one, has been willing to help.
Hillary Clinton is a significantly more gracious person than I am so I have no doubt that she gave him the best advice possible.
I, on the other hand, would have told him to get fucked.
