BOOM: Former Pompeo Senior Advisor To Testify This Week Before House Impeachment Committee


Remember how quaint Watergate was, how it all blew up when the “smoking gun” was discovered? Donald Trump’s got a smoking artillery range, as yet another career diplomat steps forward courageously to testify. Michael McKinley, a former senior adviser to Mike Pompeo, resigned his post last week, “amid rising dissatisfaction and plummeting morale inside the State Department over what is seen as Pompeo’s failure to support personnel ensnared in the Ukraine controversy,” according to the Washington Post:

A person familiar with the situation said McKinley felt that Pompeo had been a positive force compared to his predecessor, Rex Tillerson, in terms of encouraging alternative views within the department, as well as lifting a Tillerson freeze on promotions and prohibitions against spouses working abroad.

Although he had no direct involvement with Ukraine, part of McKinley’s job involved taking the temperature of the building for Pompeo. Like many others, he was disappointed in the secretary’s lack of public support for diplomats who have been named in the Ukraine controversy and called to testify before House committees conducting the impeachment inquiry into the actions of Trump and his personal attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani.

McKinley is scheduled to testify Wednesday. Maybe he’ll enlighten us as to what Pompeo was doing, listening in on the telephone conversation between Trump and Zelensky. McKinley is a private citizen now. He doesn’t have the sword of Damocles hanging over him, since he resigned. This could get interesting.

…When thieves install themselves into political seats of power , they are like bedbugs , very ..hard to get rid of .
..Especially the Republicans ,that have kept the seats for years , are now frightened about their
rice bowl . )They know Trumps corrupt but he’s got them locked in )!
..Their easy money ,by ”milking the
public ”taxpayers” ,is in danger of being lost.
…They are now being forced to back a horrible person , —they know it ,— but are joined at the hip with him . all are going down
together, over the political cliff !

..Perhaps the most astounding thing I’ve seen any head of state do is call another head of state “a fool “.
Apparently , Trump Just sent a letter to the President of Turkey and called him a fool .
..This man ( Trump ) is insane , and it looks as though he’s trying to drive Turkey ,into the arms of the Russians.
.,I mean ,it looks very bad for Trump , because it implies Trump’s been working with the Russians
to break down NATO all along!
…This is Impeachable ,by itself.
Which makes Trump NFL , as in not for long !
