Only a day ago, Mike Pompeo told the world that Israel’s settlements on Palestinian land occupied during the 1967 war are “legal.”

Pompeo is right with this exception, this is a clear violation of the 4th Geneva Convention and it is totally legal so long as one never travels to a country with an extradition treaty with a signatory nation.

196 nations are waiting for Pompeo’s visit.  Could this be why he is quitting or other reasons, perhaps too many to count?


Daily Beast: On the other, Trump and his loyalists are blaming Pompeo for the damning testimony of the State Department employees and for what the loyalists perceive as Pompeo’s insufficiently robust defense of the President.

The closest Pompeo has come to publicly criticizing Trump came last month when Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo asked him if the Administration has a broader strategy that included withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria. “My experience with the President is that he makes decisions and then absorbs data and facts, evaluates situations if we need to adjust our policy to achieve our goals,” Pompeo answered.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is reportedly planning to resign and run for a Senate seat in Kansas in the 2020 elections, according to sources cited by Time. The secretary of state originally planned to resign sometime in the spring of next year, but the impeachment inquiry and his relationship with President Trump have reportedly caused him to revise his timing.

Now, Pompeo says he’ll exit the administration when he can make the “smoothest possible exit,” Time reports. There is reportedly no indication that Trump is aware of Pompeo’s plans, and Pompeo has claimed he has no intention of running in the 2020 race.

This comes after Trump called out Pompeo in late October, claiming he made a mistake in hiring current U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor—who has testified before Congress in the impeachment inquiry. “Everybody makes mistakes,” Trump said of Pompeo’s move.

and from Time Magazine:

“As impeachment hearings gain steam, Pompeo faces a dilemma, say the three prominent Republicans, all of whom requested anonymity to discuss private conversations with Pompeo.

On the one hand, the longer he stays, the greater the criticism of his failure to defend veteran diplomats and longstanding U.S. policies against the President’s politicization of foreign affairs. Pompeo has declined to defend by name either former ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch or diplomat William Taylor, both of whom gave damning testimony against Trump this month.

  1. I thought there couldn’t have been anyone worse than Hillary Clinton as SOS until that Pompous moron took over. Clinton was evil but Pompous is not just evil but also stupid.

  2. Pompeo is a worthless piece of lying lawyer garbage just like most of the rest working for
    Trump. Obviously the claim that he was a top engineering student at West Point are wrong; he evidently was the lowest student there.
