Mike Pompeo might actually be as big a liar as Donald Trump and that’s quite an achievement. Steve Linick, the inspector general who was most recently fired by Trump, testified before Congress that before he was fired he had dialogue with three of Pompeo’s aides and indicated that he was investigating Pompeo’s use of resources — and then he got the ax, and Pompeo said he didn’t know anything about the pending investigations. Corrupt, much?

West Point grads like Pompeo are supposed to have character, integrity and honor. If he ever had those qualities, and I don’t know one way or the other, he certainly ditched them in service to Donald Trump. I guess the siren call of power is too enticing for some people to resist and overrides all over considerations.

I am sure they have good grades and such, but it takes at least a little political juice to get an appointment. Though we have a few good guys… Read more »

It’s just possible that the aides didn’t tell Pompeous about it, lest they themselves be fired.

Naw, they’d go scurrying up to him, brown-nosing by ratting out the disloyal IG. That’s what rats do.
