Thread: Pompeo, Trump and the 4th Inspector General Firing

gina - 5/19/2020 at 08:45 PM

Scandal, investigations, and yes wag the dog. What's going on here? Steve Linick Inspector General was investigating Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State for using governmental staff for personal business errands. Pompeo not aware of this investigation, so Linick's firing was not retribution. Pompeo did mention to Trump he did not feel Linick was helpful in the way he was doing the Inspector General job. Linick felt fired for not appreciating doing personal errands for Pompeo.

Mike Pompeo oversees, facilitates, implements important missions in his role of Secretary of State. He's still a liaison on the Afghanistan Peace Agreement between the Kabul Administration and the Taliban political office leaders. One of the other things he has allegedly helped with was an 8 Billion dollar arms deal so Trump could sell weapons through the Arms Export Control Act loophole to Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates. So he's kind of busy.

Is it abuse of power for Pompeo to have governmental staff do personal errands for him? Yes. Is it illegal? I have no idea.
Was there a pattern of this or was he caught in a last minute jam being dispatched by Trump to get on a call or a plane and handle something related to national security?

Most can surmise he should hire personal domestic staff like a personal assistant to handle these matters, but is it such a big deal if he hasn't had time to do this? Will Schiff appoint an investigative inquiry? I sure hope not.

The Democrats may think so. The fired person was from the Obama administration. Was Linick spying for any Democrats?

It is ironic coincidence there seems to always be these wheels in motion to mess up Trump. The Corona virus research became a dark op in 2015. Ready to be unleashed during Trump's tenure and now right before the election it tried to take down the economy.
First they tried impeachment. Then pandemic happens. Can't get out there on the campaign trail with lockdowns and social distancing. Will that effect the election? So after the Russian collusion allegations what's next? Arms deals without Congressional approval?

It just goes on and on and on.

Give Pompeo a free pass on this one, but urge him to hire a personal assistant [and no Monica Lewinsky intern types].

Just another day at the swamp. Would expect nothing less, as this is standard operating procedure for the corruption known as 45.

For all of the dedicated people who have done their jobs but got a little to close to the damaging truth of the Trump Administration, you have paid a price for serving your country. The list is extensive - from diplomats, to military personnel, to scientists, to IG's, etc. You didn't learn to be lapdogs so this is what happend to you. This is MAGA.

In January 2021 I'd like to see Biden reinstate all those trampled upon by Trump and his cronies.

Just a prophetic side note. Those arms to Jordan are necessary. When the anti-Christ rises and seats himself the Temple in Jerusalem he then demands oaths of allegiance to him by all people. The Jews and Christian's and Muslims too will have to flee Jerusalem and the West Bank and East Jerusalem. They will have to go to Jordan thru the valley that runs from the West Bank. They will end up in Petra, Jordan. Eventually when the battle of armageddon happens it will begin in Syria. Muslims will accompany the real Jesus to fight the anti-Christ.

Jordan needs weapons for that war whether they know it or not they have a role to play.

Trump is getting that Temple in Jerusalem built.

The prophecies are happening even if unknown by those God chose as emissaries.

Mike Bloomberg former Mayor of New York is giving Biden 250 Million dollars as a campaign donation.

Looks like somebody is covertly starting investigations into State Department Pompeo. I read today they are complaining about his 'Madison' dinners of 500 guests at taxpayer expense. Former President James Madison did the same thing inviting dignitaries to dinner and discussions of issues facing the government and policies.

If you read his twitter feed you can get an idea of how much he works on. I believe the dinners are business and a meal in a positive relaxing atmosphere.

Good thing Trump drained the swamp when he took office and replaced the swamp creatures with ethical civil servants and cabinet members. I wonder if Scott Pruitt (former EPA Administrator) taught Pompeo how to abuse taxpayer money and make it his own. Living off the taxpayer dime is free and easy.

We are getting closer to Russia, N Korea, and China every day

They are asking for so much justification regarding these dinners. I know why. Mitch McConnell wants him to run for a Kansas Senate seat, and in 2024 he wants him to run for President.

People think it's just a surprise who they select for party nominees, no it starts years ahead of time. Except for Trump who just decided he had to try. Even he was surprised at 2:45 a.m. when the election was decided. I remember Don Jr. Had this look like OMG my Dad is going to be President.

The people spoke.

Ain't that the truth. Trump and his minions have killed the whole checks and balances system in the Constitution. The irony is those that scream about the Constitution the most are the very ones trading it in for a dictatorship.

Same as the Christian Right that screams about Muslims is pretty much an American version of Islam.
