That is completely weird.
Axio’s Jonathan Swan stories that Mike Pompeo introduced that he’ll maintain a press convention during which Pompeo will reveal nationwide safety considerations he has relating to Trump’s decide for the Republican nomination for the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate seat, Mehmet Oz, or “Dr. Oz.”

Pompeo’s considerations are based mostly upon “Mehmet Ozs shut ties to the Turkish authorities and navy.” Ozwas born in Ohio to first-generation Turkish immigrants and served two years within the Turkish navy. Not one of the above would appear disqualifying and was open data. Certainly, with nothing extra, such an allegation is basically un-American, akin to Trump referencing a courtroom case in entrance of a “Mexican choose.”
However that’s solely a part of the story. Ozis Trump’s decide, Pompeo appears to wish to minimize the legs out from underneath Ozand thus Trump.
This isn’t how issues are accomplished in MAGA world, clearly. It leaves one desperately searching for a proof that doesn’t embody the truth that Mike Pompeo is severing ties with any Trump partnership, whereas additionally burning his MAGA card. One is close to compelled to conclude that Pompeo has near-determined that he’ll run for president in 2024, even when Trump runs.
It follows that if Pompeo has data that might severely harm Ozas a candidate, it could be a present of energy on Pompeo’s half, that his affect can match or defeat Trump. If the considerations had been sturdy sufficient, it’s doable Pompeo might make Trump appear to be an irresponsible idiot.
It could not be the primary time.
There’s additionally the truth that Pompeo selected a information convention to make the revelations. Pompeo should need the video on the market. It could be far simpler to place his ideas on paper and formally launch a press release expressing what he is aware of and why he believes it’s disqualifying.
Fascinating. Trump at all times had a surprisingly subservient relationship with Turkey’s president Recep Erdogan. Pompeo was head of the CIA earlier than changing into the Secretary of State. He might be able to “know issues.”
