Former National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster warned Joe Biden to not rejoin the 2015 Iran nuclear deal once he takes office, during an interview with Bret Baier on “Special Report” Wednesday.

McMaster told Baier that “it would be a really big mistake to try and turn the clock back to 2016 and resurrect the Iran nuclear deal.” He added, “the Iran nuclear deal was a political disaster masquerading as a diplomatic trial. It was a fundamentally flawed agreement.”

Regarding the future relationship between Iran and Israel, McMaster worries of apprehension if Biden does agree to the deal.

“In some way we’re back to the 2006 period,” said McMaster. “Tensions were higher and the (Israeli Defense Force) was about to act.”

McMaster went on to talk about the importance of a smooth transitional period from one president-elect to the next, which has been a point of contention as the Trump Campaign and Republican party allege voter fraud occured in the 2020 Election.

“I think it’s really important for us to show a high degree of confidence and a degree of stability and a recognition that our democracy works, our institutions are strong.”

Presidential transition periods are high-tension times for national security.

According to him, it is vital that the transition goes smoothly.

“Any period of transition is a dangerous time. Our enemies, adversaries, rivals think it might be a time to act out against us,” said McMaster. “If we show weakness and division, there are a lot of malign actors that might take advantage of that.”

He added, “We want America to succeed so we want the next administration to succeed. We might have big differences in policy with them but that’s the opportunity to voice those differences.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
