U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference on Friday in an encounter the American side apparently wanted to keep under wraps.

1. We find out about this through Russian media

and Julia Davis, who reads it. Much like Trumpís Oval Office meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak.

Politico Europe has it now:
ďA Russian journalist traveling with Lavrov said the U.S. side had requested that there be no press conference or joint statements and that photographers not even be invited to take a picture of the two top diplomats shaking hands.Ē

Edit - a response to Juliaís post:

Did he invite Lavrov for a third Oval Office while Zelensky has had zero.

3. What fresh hell can this be ?

It was not immediately clear why the State Department did not disclose the meeting between Pompeo and his Russian counterpart in advance.
Russian journalist traveling with Lavrov said the U.S. side had requested that there be no press conference or joint statements and that photographers not even be invited to take a picture of the two top diplomats shaking hands.

5. He's doing one of three things...

He's making contact and saying it's mission accomplished (probably on fixing elecions or taking over the DoJ and the recent meddling)

He's worried that the imbecile has finally blown too many gaskets and please get him out of the way

He's telling them he wants out.

11. Maybe Pompeo Wanted An Update On

How the 2020 election interference campaign was going so far? And to share what our intelligence agencies are reporting up the chain of command so Russia can take counter measures. Maybe confirm what Giuliani is passing on to Barr. It would be good to have their ducks in a row.

13. Not so secret anymore

Pompeo is such a feckless tool.

And since Russian state media is reporting this, he clearly got played.

14. Yeah, they're keeping red don's complicity under wraps

for the time being. I think red don got cautioned by his campaign strategists to ratchet down the overt toadying to putin, until after the election, so as not to scare the 'Murican public with open evidence of his treachery.

16. The traitorous behavior is nauseating

but their total incompetence in the trade craft of espionage and "diplomacy" is even more frightening. Our only secure secrets are probably those few things our spooks have been able to hide from these GOP incompetents.

18. Well, as long as Pompeo didn't hand Lavrov a ceremonial sword in the hotel's "Appomattox Room"

I guess we shouldn't get too worried............

19. That's it

the American people don't know shit about what's going on in their own country. how long before Putin pays a visit?

things are moving towards an autocracy. the GOP sold us out, they have total disrespect for the people. So is this the last straw for us or will they take everything away from us then we will be in the streets.
