Mike Pompeo tells Jewish leaders he would ‘push back’ against Corbyn

Rowena Mason and Heather Stewart – The Guardian June 10, 2019

Labour has accused Donald Trump’s top official, Mike Pompeo, of trying to stop Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister, after he was caught on tape telling Jewish leaders that he would “push back” against the party’s leadership.

In a recording leaked to the Washington Post, the US secretary of state was asked what he would do if Corbyn were to be elected as prime minister, after sustained criticism over Labour’s handling of accusations of antisemitism within the party.

The questioner said: “Would you be willing to work with us to take on actions if life becomes very difficult for Jews in the UK?” In response, Pompeo appeared to suggest that he would seek to intervene in the debate before Corbyn had a chance to become prime minister.

“It could be that Mr Corbyn manages to run the gauntlet and get elected,” he said on the recording. “It’s possible. You should know, we won’t wait for him to do those things to begin to push back. We will do our level best. It’s too risky and too important and too hard once it’s already happened.”

A Labour spokesman said: “President Trump and his officials’ attempts to decide who will be Britain’s next prime minister are an entirely unacceptable interference in the UK’s democracy.” He added that the party was “fully committed to the support, defence and celebration of the Jewish community and is implacably opposed to antisemitism in any form”.

Pompeo’s comments emerged after Trump turned down Corbyn’s request for a meeting during his state visit to the UK last week, saying the leader was “somewhat of a negative force”. Corbyn joined protests outside Trump’s press conference with Theresa May, where he pledged to oppose the US president’s drive for greater access for US health companies to NHS contracts.

The comments come at a time when Corbyn’s team are nervous about the latest attempts to oust him from within the party over the issues of antisemitism and Brexit, after several senior figures came out in support of a second referendum.

  1. The Guardian is whats technically called ” a bollox paper”
    Its not meant to be taken seriously, no news paper is.
    If it was giving real info it would be taken down


  2. There was massive voter fraud to get Tony Blairs new labour into office
    new Labour was a mossad false front org, to get brits to fight the jews wars on iraq etc
    The Referendum party was another jewish scam to split the tory vote, which it did
    But Royal mail organised the letter sorting machines, and a huge batch of tory voting papers was hidden up for some weeks down in Dorset, before being shredded.
    see this about how peterborough cheated brexit voters

  3. What?! Collusion between the US government and the British government to influence British elections?!

    Why, this is obviously a job for special counsel from Special Executive Services, Robert Mueller! He’ll figure this out in no time at all! Yes sir!

  4. Moshe solomons on rado said the jews had already been tryin g their best to discredit him and squash his popularity, same as with ken livinstone, they want him out and their man in
    Paul Boating wanted livingstons job, boating was in with greville janner and used to screw young barnardos boys together.
    british politics is no place for dirty poofs or for jews

  5. If this Report is true, we already have a conflict of Interests, we have Teresa may and her Party against Brexit, which is starting to look Bad, but where does Nigel Farage Stand we it comes to Policies in a general Election, is he for closer ties with the US even with these Threats From Pompeo, I Think that all of this now regarding the future Elections is Starting to Have a Big Stink About It, Jeremy has lost ground regarding not Leaving Brexit, but if He changed his mind for a very good reason’s then he would be a very strong Contender, on the Other hand Nigel Farage could put himself right back in the Picture it he shows Policies that are entirely against what The USA wants That puts them Completely out of it, I have Always felt in recent Years America has had little bit more to say that what is good for the British people, and their Recent actions are going to Rub a lot of People up the Wrong Way.

  6. IMO the Britsh “Ms” have done their best in the past to get rid of the President of the United States.
    (Ms= (MI6, MI5, all kinds of strange running around spies like Steele supported by Killary))

    How about that?

    Despite all what happened and being said by US officials, I believe it is right to say US has nothing lost to interfere in British politics.
