GUEST: Rob Boston, Senior Adviser at Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
BACKGROUND: State Secretary Mike Pompeo is in the crosshairs of the House-led impeachment inquiry facing President Donald Trump. But his conduct at the US State Department could be worthy of its own inquiry. Aside from failing to keep his staff immune from the pressures of Trump’s political machinations, Pompeo has taken the US State Department in a distinctly theological direction. Most recently he gave a speech called “On Being a Christian Leader” under the official auspices of the State Department – not the first and likely not the last time he violated the tenets of separating church and state.
