Wednesday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, discussed the possibility of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo serving as both the nation’s top diplomat and the Trump administration’s national security advisor as well.
Rogers explained to host Chris Cuomo that such a move wasn’t unprecedented.
“I served with Mike Pompeo before he left to go to work with the administration,” Rogers said.
It’s not unprecedented for the Kissinger model to be used where both secretary of state and national security advisor are one person.
And I’m not sure Mike Pompeo would be comfortable about that, even if it was suggested.”
