Pompeo and Circumstance, Cont.

The beatings will continue unril morale improves.

Guys, remember yesterday when we learned that the Inspector General for the State Department was You’re Fired’ed for starting an investigation into our End-Times Secretary of State’s alleged abuse of his security detail, for dog walking and whatnot?

Seems that might have been misdirection! Who knew? (We all knew, we just didn’t know misdirection from what!)

House Democrats have learned that ousted State Department Inspector General Steve Linick was nearly finished with an investigation into Pompeo’s approval of billions of Ameros in arms sales to Crown Prince Bone Saw, er, Saudi Arabia, when he bypassed Congress with a baseless emergency declaration:

The allegation Pompeo declined to cooperate with the investigation came after House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman, Eliot Engel, claimed the State Department inspector general fired by President Donald Trump on Friday, Steve Linick, had nearly completed an investigation into Pompeo’s controversial decision to fast-track the same arms sale.
“I have learned that there may be another reason for Mr. Linick’s firing. His office was investigating — at my request — Trump’s phony declaration of an emergency so he could send weapons to Saudi Arabia. We don’t have the full picture yet, but it’s troubling that Secretary Pompeo wanted Mr. Linick pushed out before this work could be completed,” Engel, a Democrat from New York, said in a statement to CNN Monday.

These mooks from the 4th Reich are determined to make us all into conspiracy theorists, guys! It certainly makes more sense that Lord Damp Nut would do something illegal to cover up something else illegal. And it probably explains why he claimed he was taking Oreos (or whatevs that Malaria pill is called) to get the press to chase THAT squirrel.

Meanwhile, Tiger Beat’s morning email thingie tells us:

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a longtime advocate for whistleblowers and watchdogs, sent a letter to Trump yesterday demanding a “detailed reasoning” by June 1 for why Trump removed State Department Inspector General Steve Linick. “Removal of IGs without explanation could create a chilling effect in the oversight community, and risks decreasing the quantity, quality, fidelity, and veracity of their reports,” he wrote.

But a similar letter from Grassley went unanswered when Trump sacked the intelligence community’s inspector general — just the latest example of how the GOP’s pleas have been ineffective. Trump has continued to fire and reassign inspectors general whom he feels are insufficiently loyal to him without worrying about blowback from his own party, and it’s unclear what, if anything, Republicans are willing to do to stop him.

Aren’t you glad, Chuck, that you voted against removing the mother-eff’er? What a payoff that vote was.

    Pompeo should have his arrogant ass nailed to the wall, for multiple crimes. He’s rotten to the core, he lies like a rug and then, when challenged, turns tail and hides. In a just world, he would have been gone a long time ago.

  4. Well his wife doesn’t stoop to household chores, either…Kindly Doc Maddow kindly reminded us that when Pompeo took over the CIA (remember that? All those hundreds [checks notes] SIGH three years ago) , she basically assigned herself an office and staffers on the 7th floor (where all the ultra top sekrit burn before reading stuff is discussed) even though she was not a CIA employee of any sort nor had any sort of clearance for that shit. Thos staffers, OTOH had to be cleared to work there, and I’ll bet THEY were just pleased as punch to be detailed to be her minders/office servants.

    Personally, I’d rather have him wash dishes than have him on the phone with some world leader because he worships a golden pig. A FAT golden pig with tiny hands.
