He Will Find The Strawberries, Pompeo Edition

Mike Pompeo will find the missing strawberries, er, whiskey:

State Dept. sleuthing the whereabouts of a $5,800 whiskey bottle given to Pompeo from Japan

WASHINGTON — The State Department said Wednesday that it’s investigating the disappearance of a nearly $6,000 bottle of whiskey given to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by the government of Japan.

The department said in a notice posted in the Federal Register that the whiskey’s whereabouts are unknown and “it’s looking into the matter and has an ongoing inquiry.”

The Japanese whiskey was valued at $5,800 and was presented to Pompeo in June 2019, presumably when he visited the country that month for a Group of 20 summit that was also attended by President Donald Trump. But unlike other gifts, the department said there was no record of what had become of the bottle.

Pompeo as you may recall was notable for holding exclusive and fancy “Madison” dinner parties in the State Department for his best donors. Now we are not saying that Pompeo broke out the fancy whiskey for his guests (we totally are suggesting it), but we are saying that Pompeo skirted all the rules, so you know, why not this one?

    I can hear him thinking it now. “No one will know… unless we tell them about the whisky!” Trump’s best and brightest making us proud again.

      O –

      I’m guessing Mme. Pompeo stole the booze. She’s a real grasping social climber, unlike her shy and retiring hubby. I think he also claims to be a teetotaler, you know, with anger management issues.

    Is there the slightest doubt that one of these two hogs guzzled it down?

    I’ve been a dry-drunk for a long time so maybe I’ve missed something in the translation: how the hell is a bottle of whiskey worth six thousand dollars? WTF …

      Maybe the whiskey had character, with just a blush of fruitiness and just a slight bite for the finish. $6000 please, no, I kid, just $5999.99. Or, cheap at any price.
