House GOP Huddles With Man Who Happily Took Pictures Negotiating With Taliban

August 19, 2021

From the Speaker's Press Office:

As House Republicans hypocritically oppose a withdrawal they demanded prior to last week, they took time on their weekly conference call to huddle with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a man who happily took pictures negotiating with the Taliban:


Like House Republicans, Mike Pompeo has been on every side of this issue - except the one of honesty.

Trump's former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz both also supported Biden's original withdrawal timeline but issued scathingly critical attacks against the administration over the past week.
In July, Pompeo told the Associated Press that he applauded Biden's decision to continue with Trump's plan to withdraw despite pushing back the timeline and said he was "confident" in the current administration's past assessments that the Afghan Security Forces and citizens would "fight" to prevent a full Taliban takeover.
