Fox News hostSteve Hiltonwent after former Defense SecretaryJames Mattisfor getting a job with an advisory firm founded by a formerBill Clintonofficial, accusing Mattis of “selling out America.”
Hilton noted onThe Next RevolutionSunday night that Mattis was joining The Cohen Group, which describes itself as a global business advisory group that provides “practical assistance in business development, market entry, regulatory affairs and deal sourcing.”
“Also known as lobbying,” Hilton argued. The group is based in Washington D.C. and was founded by former Clinton Defense SecretaryWilliam Cohen.
“General Mattis is now taking his years of taxpayer-funded government service to a firm that boasts about shipping defense manufacturing jobs overseas, selling American defense companies to the French and German and lobbying state and local government in this country to use your tax dollars not to buy American but to buy Indian,” Hilton said.
“What the hell is Mattis doing? Going from defending America to selling out America,” he said.
Hilton then conceded the group also does a lot of work in the United States.
“It’s only fair to note the Cohen Group does also talk about helping American companies,” Hilton said. “I guess it’s possible General Mattis has insisted on a clause in his contract the limits them to such work.”
Hilton then went on to scold Mattis again, saying “it’s shameful for him to have anything to do with this swampy firm that shows no loyalty to the country that put it where it is.”
