MAGA betrayal: Trump-backed Tennessee congressional hopeful pledged to “faithfully serve the Biden administration” in leaked email
By JD Heyes // Jan 30, 2022

A Tennessee Republican congressional hopeful who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump said in a leaked email that she promised to "faithfully serve the Biden administration," the National Pulse revealed exclusively this week.


Morgan Ortagus, a high-level Trump administration official who is considering a run for Congress in the Volunteer State, was a spokesperson for the State Department during Trump's term and has since received a preemptive "complete and total endorsement" from her former boss "in a move that has stunned the MAGA base," the outlet reported. Trump's endorsement was seen as stunning by his base because most prefer filmmaker and grassroots activist Robby Starbuck, who is considered to be their frontrunner so far in Tennessee's 5th Congressional District race.

“I couldn’t be happier because she’s an absolute warrior for America First and MAGA!” former President Trump said in a statement from his Save America PAC.

The outlet continued:

The National Pulse understands that local party operatives, including architect of the recent Georgia Senate loss strategy, Ward Baker, is behind Trump’s move to endorse Ortagus, who welcomed the endorsement on Twitter, stating: “Thank you, President Trump! It was an honor working for the #AmericaFirst agenda in your administration. Like you, I’ll always fight for American greatness.”

In a private email dated Jan. 19, 2021, a day before Joe Biden was inaugurated following a stolen election, Ortagus revealed that she was plotting a career move "no matter what happened with [the] election" while going on to heap praise on a key Obama/Biden official Ned Price who was replacing her, calling him "fantastic."

The email, which was titled, "How to say goodbye?" was marked as highly important and was sent to all careerists within the State Department's Bureau of Global Public Affairs as a group, along with another select assortment of officials in the Office of Public Affairs (PAO).


She wrote: "As I’ve often said, no matter what happened with the election, I was moving on and going back into the Navy Reserves. Now, like most of you, I put the career hat back on (or rather my Navy uniform!) and go in to faithfully serving the incoming Biden Administration. Catch you on the other side!"

Her fealty to the incoming administration and its officials follows a pattern of siding with the political establishment, which does not describe former President Trump, who was, without doubt, the most anti-establishment president in a century or more.

Ortagus said of Trump in January 2016 during an interview with Fox News, “You have somebody who makes fun of people with mental and physical disabilities. That’s disgusting; there’s no other way around it."

She also said that she "fundamentally disagree[d]" with Trump's foreign policy approach while she was working for a super PAC associated with one of Trump's GOP primary opponents -- and the establishment's handpicked candidate at the time -- Jeb Bush.

“In his gut, he does not think that Americans should be, quote-unquote, the policemen of the world,” she noted during a 2016 panel discussion in which she and others tore apart a foreign policy speech Trump had previously given.

“I don’t see it that way. I think that America is the glue that holds the world together. … So there were points that I agreed with him today, but overall, I fundamentally disagree with his isolationist approach to foreign policy,” she added.

Also, some anecdotal evidence of her preference for the left-leaning political establishment: Ortagus was married to her second husband in 2000, with the late left-wing Supreme Court icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg officiating.

"The news has caused friction inside President Trump’s Make America Great Again base, with insiders pointing to Ortagus’s recent meetings with Ivanka Trump as her father’s rationale for the endorsement," The National Pulse reported.

"Mrs. Trump and her husband Jared Kushner were best known inside the Trump White House for promoting 'moderates' and 'Never Trumpers' who ended up turning on the President, especially following the January 6th Capitol protest," the outlet continued.

Trump's presidency was good for one thing: Outing all of the pretend conservatives who have been mucking up the GOP's potential for decades.
