Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate David McCormick on Friday in an interview on FOX Information known as it fully applicable to query Dr. Mehmet Oz’s standing as a twin citizen of Turkey. Oz has stated that he would resign his Turkish citizenship if elected.
EMANUEL: Considered one of your surrogates, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, has questioned Dr. Oz’s twin Turkish U.S. citizenship. Is that an unfair assault?
MCCORMICK: I feel it is a fully applicable assault or query, slightly. And what I imply by that’s, pay attention, Mehmet grew up in Ohio. He volunteered for the Turkish navy, went and served within the Turkish navy on the similar time I used to be serving within the American navy underneath Ronald Reagan.
And then he went on to have a long-standing set of relationships with Turkey. He owns properties in Turkey. He’s paid by the Turkish authorities primarily based on a industrial relationship he has with Turkish Airways, which is owned by the Turkish authorities.
MCCORMICK: And Turkey is an adversary. Turkey is pro-Iran, pro-Syria, anti-Israel, and Mehmet could not even get a safety clearance as a primary 12 months CIA analyst.
So these are completely reliable questions and Mehmet must reply them.
