Pompeo Looking for a Smooth Exit From Trump Administration Amid Impeachment Scandal: Report

Source: dailybeast




LONG GOODBYE



Updated Nov. 20, 2019 4:53AM ET /


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is reportedly planning to resign and run for a U.S. Senate seat in Kansas in the 2020 elections, according to sources cited by Time. The secretary of state originally planned to resign sometime in the spring of next year, but the impeachment inquiry and his relationship with President Trump have reportedly caused him to revise his timing. Now, Pompeo says he’ll exit the administration when he can make the “smoothest possible exit,” Time reports. There is reportedly no indication that Trump is aware of Pompeo’s plans, and Pompeo has claimed he has no intention of running in the 2020 race. This comes after Trump called out Pompeo in late October, claiming he made a mistake in hiring U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor—who has testified before Congress in the impeachment inquiry. “Everybody makes mistakes,” Trump said of Pompeo’s move.

1. His future in politics after trump is toast

Like others before him have had happened to them. He thinks he'll escape justice for his crimes for trump, he won't.

2. Pompeo's name should be spelled Pompous.

I understand he and his wife have his career all planned out. Sorry, Pompous. I think Trump just took care of that. You are a joke.

5. He'll probably win in Kansas.

Republicans do not want Kobach, so they’ll get behind Pompeo. And Kansas voters are too ill informed to see how the Republican Party has screwed them over for decades.

8. I recommend a discrete scupper and mooring line

9. Of course he is. Last man on this sinking ship will be Pence.

His job will be to pardon Trump--then spend the rest of his life basking in the glow of being a "former President"--for about two minutes a la Gerald Ford.

Trump will always blame anyone else, but as Pelosi said--Trump will self-Impeach!!


Trump has fumed for weeks that Mike Pompeo is responsible for hiring officials whose testimony threatens to bring down his presidency. Trump confronted Pompeo last month about what he believed was a lackluster effort by Pompeo to block their testimony.
