STATE OF CORRUPTION
READ: Pompeo Letter Prohibits State Dept. Officials From Providing Impeachment Depositions to House Committee
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is refusing to allow five State Dept. officials from being deposed by the House Foreign Affairs Committee as part of an ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.
In a letter (below) to the Committee Pompeo falsely accused Democrats of trying to “intimidate” and “bully” State Department employees, the AP reports, while – without actual legal basis – declaring depositions of those officials are just “not feasible.”
Here is the Secretary’s letter:
I’m concerned with aspects of the Committee’s request that can be understood only as an attempt to intimidate, bully, & treat improperly the distinguished professionals of the Department of State, including several career FSOs. pic.twitter.com/QRtMaXlhQM
