Secretary of State Mike Pompeo: “Perplexing” to Hear Sen. Feinstein Praise China

In an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed recent remarks from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), wherein she referred to China growing into a “respectable nation.” The remarks were widely criticized by lawmakers and experts who see China as one of the most significant national security threats to the U.S. and to the world order as a whole, particularly in light of their handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

“Why do some in Congress not say the same thing that you have been saying, that this administration has been communicating?” Bartiromo asked. “There doesn’t seem to be an all-out agreement within the Congress on this.”

“Maria, I saw the statement from Senator Feinstein. I found it perplexing,” Pompeo replied. “I saw statements from senior American CEOs of the big tech companies this week saying they hadn’t heard or seen about intellectual property theft in the United States. That’s — that’s crazy talk.”

“I mean, I was particularly struck by Dianne Feinstein, because didn’t she have a driver for 20 years that we ended up finding out was a Chinese spy?” Bartiromo asked.

“We did,” he confirmed. “You will recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too. There’s something not quite right. I mean, and this is not consistent — this is not consistent with America’s national security. In either case, these are adversaries that intend harm for the citizens of her state of California. And I wish that she would not engage in this kind of rhetoric and these kind of meetings that undermine America’s efforts.”

Pompeo said that despite some questionable remarks from some in the Democratic Party – both inside and outside of Capitol Hill – the administration was making progress in terms of getting lawmakers on the same page in terms of the Chinese Communist Party.

“Here’s the good news,” he said. “The good news is, we’re getting nearly every member of Congress aligned along the administration’s policies on China. When we voted about Hong Kong freedom, there were over 400 votes in the House and nearly every vote in the Senate. The same with respect to what’s taking place in Western China, the human rights violations.

“I think the tide is turning, I think not only here in the United States, but all across the world,” he continued. “The threat from the Chinese Communist Party is becoming clearer and clearer. And nations that are like-minded all across the world are beginning to come together to rebalance, to push back against this, to protect our freedom and democracy.”

  1. Follow the $$$$$$$ !Where do her interests lie ? has she been compensated in any way including donations from any CCP associated company or organization ? What happened to the Spy that was her driver for 20 years ? Why should anyone place any credence upon anything she says after she was compromised by a Communist Spy , Hoodwinked for 20 years ,unless She was well aware of this and allowed it to happen !Anything involving Foreign investments or contributions to her or her husband’s interests, campaign donations, Stock portfolios, smells like a skunk in the woodpile,Hmmmmmmmm !

  2. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Should be investigated for Treason, fraud relating to financial Dealings and investment dealing with China, and personal harboring for years a Chinese member of the CCP on her Congressional staff for years until autonomous disclosure was made to Congressional Leaders and the press? What ever happened to this individual? Were they deported or charged with espionage? Why was not not Sen. Dianne Feinstein called to answer fir her Violation of Security Protocols? I fear her ties are much deeper to the Chinese CCP!

  3. She is a nothing congress person. Her defeat in the next election is the only way to correct the harm she is creating in congress, and to Mexifornia.

  4. It did not surprise me, she had a Chinese working for her, I believe close to 20 years and he turned out to be a communist! It is time to get rid of retirement for politicians and term limits of a maxim of 4 years and back to the private sector, most of the career politicians end up millionaires and that is wrong!

  5. She may well be a puppet for the Chinese as history may reveal given her husband’s long history in his relations with China (shall we say profitable…) or her former driver that was tied to the Chinese government (and in China it is a one party system, Communist is your choice).
    Her ties to China and the monetary returns to her family do need to be looked at more closely.

  6. Kind a makes you wonder about how her wealth tripled in just a few short years doesn’t it,does anyone really believe that Feinstein isn’t just as crooked as all of the rest of the liberals.

  7. Feinstein is a typical Democrat that is a disgrace.How many in that party are criminals that got away?Skanks like her should be removed and investigated

  8. You can bet your life on if it had been a Republican they would have been tried for treason and sent to prison. But then there is two sets of rules today, one for the corrupt demonRATs and one for you and I, honest hard working Americans.

  9. She is just protecting her Communist piggy bank.
    If you want this country to survive and remain
    free…you will reelect President Trump…and
    give him the House and Senate so he can continue
    to expose the trash in Washington.
    A vote for Biden is a vote for Soros and Communist
    China… I personally don’t VOTE for traitors.

  10. You shouldn’t be perplexed or surprised to hear any of the commie dems, including stupid old Feinstien, praise the communists.. after all that is where a lot of their paychecks come from. China so embedded in the Democratic party now.. don’t know if we can ever get them out. shame on these stupid commie dems.. shame on them for the traitors they are!
