Emails show how Pompeos mixed personal, official business

Source: NBC News

Both Congress and the State Department's inspector general have been investigating potential misuse of government resources by Mike Pompeo and his wife.

The emails show that Susan Pompeo routinely gives instructions to State Department officials from her personal email address about everything from travel plans and restaurant reservations to the elite Madison Dinners that NBC News reported on in May.

Many involve routine matters like logistics and scheduling for official events that would involve coordination with the secretary's spouse in any administration. But other requests, such as seeking assistance with planning a multiday visit for an elite group of young executives from Kansas, appear to be less directly connected to advancing the State Department's core mission.

They include maintenance requests for the house the Pompeos rent on a Washington-area military base, which Susan Pompeo appears to be routing through the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service. Emails show special agents from the service's Secretary of State Protective Division updating Susan Pompeo about repairs to the HVAC system in 2018 and to the porch and stairs in 2019.

6. Enabled by Mitch McConnell.

Our system was designed to prevent such entanglements, but without enforcement, these grifters are enabled. I wish that Biden and Harris would show up in Kentucky and campaign for Amy McGrath. If there was even a hint of dumping that son of a bitch, it would be worth it. Turn him into a private citizen, so he can be offered the same protections as such, no more, no less.
