Trump ally and former Ambassador Rick Grenell went after former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over this recent attacks on Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Mehmet Oz on Monday.

As The Hill reports:

Pompeo criticized television’s Oz over his Turkish citizenship, accusing him of having ties to Turkey’s government.

Grenell quickly shot back:

His comments follow a briefing Pompeo held last week over his concerns about Oz.

Pompeo has accused Oz of having ties to the Turkish government but said Oz’s opponent, David McCormick, is a “patriot.”

The Pennsylvania Senate candidate says he maintains his Turkish citizenship to care for his mother but plans to renounce it if elected.

If Oz manages to triumph in the GOP Senate primaries it now seems likley he will face current Democrat Lt. Governor John Fetterman.
