It wasn’t ‘JUST’ the President-Elect he met with, either!
With that elevator under the microscope, enormous speculation surrounds any high-profile visitor that gets the invite. Is this consultation? Is this a cabinet invite? Is this a game of political chess?
We can now add another high-profile name to the mix.
Col. Allen B. West.
He’s a favorite among the right for among other things… his strong positions on national security and taking out ISIS.
Here’s what his own site said about the visit:
As The Hill reports Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) met with Vice President-elect Mike Pence and several other members of the incoming national security team to discuss ways the former Army lieutenant colonel may be able to “continue to serve” his country.
“Nothing was offered. I mean, they know my reputation very well,” West told pool reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower following the meeting.
“I’m just a simple soldier and I’m the third of four generations that served this country going back to my father in World War II, and we still have a relative of ours that is continuing to serve in the Army now,” he added.
West said he also met with retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, whom President-elect Donald Trump has picked to be his national security adviser, and K.T. McFarland, Trump’s choice for deputy national security adviser.
If West is meeting with the National Security team? That’s GOTTA be good news for America…
and BAD news for ISIS and its proxies.
