Pompeo hits back at House Dems, confirms he was on Ukraine call


BRIAN: HOLD ON ONE SECOND HE IS TAKING A QUESTION ABOUT IMPEACHMENT.>>CALL PRESIDENT HAD WITH PRESIDENT SLESK ON JULY 25TH AND IF SO ARE THE ACCOUNTS WE HAVE ALL SEEN OF IT OR INCLUDING THE TRANSCRIPT OR PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT RELEASED BY THE TRANSCRIPT ACCURATE AND COMPLETE? IF YOU YOU WERE ON THE CALL DID YOU HEAR ANYTHING THAT RAISED A RED FLAG OR ANYTHING THAT GAVE YOU ANY CONCERNS? AND THEN SECONDLY YOU SAID LAST WEEK THAT YOU — AS FAR AS YOU KNEW, EVERYONE AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT HAS ACTED APPROPRIATELY IN REGARDS TO UKRAINE INCLUDING YOURSELF IS THAT STILL THE CASE? IS THAT STILL YOUR BELIEF? IF IT IS, WHY OBJECT TO THE DEMAND FOR DEPOSITION FROM THE HOUSE COMMITTEES ON THE HILL? AND THEN DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC CONCERNS AT ALL ABOUT WHAT THE STATE DEPARTMENT INSPECTOR GENERAL IS GOING TO BE BRIEFING TO HILL STAFFERS LATER TODAY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANKS, MATT. I WILL TRY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS 4 THROUGH 7 FIRST AND THEN 1 THROUGH 3 AFTER THAT. BACK TO FIRST PRINCIPLES. THE PREDICATE OF YOUR FINAL QUESTION ABOUT OBJECTING TO WHAT THE FOLKS ON CAPITOL HILL HAVE ASKED IS FUNDAMENTALLY NOT TRUE. WHAT WE OBJECTED TO WAS THE DEMANDS PUT DEEPLY VIOLATE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF SEPARATION OF POWERS. THEY CONTACTED STATE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEES DIRECTLY. TOLD THEM NOT TO CONTACT TO LEGAL COUNSEL AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT. THAT’S BEEN REPORTED TO US. THEY SAID THAT THE STATE DEPARTMENT WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO BE PRESENT. THERE ARE IMPORTANT CONSTITUTIONAL PREROGATIVES THAT THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH HAS TO BE PRESENT SO WE CAN PROTECT THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION. SO OUR PARTNERS, COUNTRIES LIKE ITALY CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE THE INFORMATION THEY PROVIDE TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT WILL BE PROTECT YOU HAD. SO THE RESPONSE THAT I PROVIDED TO THEM WAS ONE THAT ACKNOWLEDGED WE WILL, OF COURSE, DO OUR CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO COOPERATE WITH THIS COEQUAL BRANCH BUT GOING TO DO SO IN A WAY THAT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE FUNDAMENTAL VALUES OF THE AMERICAN SYSTEM. WE WON’T TOLERATE FOLKS ON CAPITOL HILL, BULLYING, INTIMIDATING STATE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEES THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND NOT SOMETHING THAT I’M GOING TO PERMIT TO HAPPEN. AS FOR WAS I ON THE PHONE CALL SNIFFS ON THE PHONE CALL THE PHONE CALL IN THE CONTEXT NOW I HAVE BEEN SECRETARY OF STATE FOR COMING ON A YEARNA. I KNOW PRECISELY WHAT THE AMERICAN POLICY IS WITH RESPECT TO UKRAINE. IT’S BEEN REMARKABLY CONSISTENT AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO TRY TO DRIVE THOSE SET OF OUTCOMES. IT’S WHAT OUR TEAM, INCLUDING AMBASSADOR VOLCKER WERE FOCUSED ON, WEIGHS TOWN DOWN THE THREAT THAT RUSSIA POSES. HELPING UKRAINIANS TO GET CORRUPTION OUTSIDE OF THEIR GOVERNMENT AND TO HELP NOW THIS ENOUGH GOVERNMENT IN UKRAINE. THE STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS THAT I HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO LEAD HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN AND IT’S WHAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO EVEN WHILE ALL THIS NOISE IS GOING ON.>>CHRIS O’DAY, NATIONAL REVIEW.>>THANK YOU BOTH FOR BEING HERE. I WOULD LIKE TO, I GUESS, ADDRESS THE QUESTION TO BOTH OF YOU. YOU CAN TAKE IT IN WHICHEVER ORDER, WHOEVER WANTS TO GO FIRST. PRIMARILY ORIENTED TOWARDS, I GUESS, WHAT IS CONVENIENTLY TERMED KIND OF THE BELTEN ROAD THESE DAYS. BUT ON A SOMEWHAT BROADER BASIS NOT JUST WITH HUAWEI BUT DOES THE U.S. HAVE ANY SPECIFIC PLANS IN TERMS OF YOU WHO TO COUNTER CHINA’S INVESTMENT IN THESE MAJOR, CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE ASSETS AND I ASK THAT HERE BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE. STEVE: ALL RIGHT. SO THERE YOU HAVE GOT THE SECRETARY OF STATE ANSWERING A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS. HE WAS ON THE PHONE CALL. THEY DID TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT CORRUPTION. WILL THEY COOPERATE, THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE WITH

    Pompeo is going to do Federal Prison time unless he was a source to the Whistle Blower.
    He and Barr might have been.

    Exactly the swamp's behavior and/or attitude is childish and they truly need to examine themselves and see how soon they need to change their tune, enough is enough, stop and go back to your business or simply resigned you're not welcome anymore.

    Don't let this distract you from the fact the Trump's 'lover' Kim has just fired off another missile from a submarine. Remember when trump was asking for the nobel peace prize for shaking a dictators hand? Well this is where all that lead to … nowhere.

    Something everyone must know. 3 years ago a you tuber snuck into the bilderberg meetings, and they decided what was going to happen in the U.S. Everything that guy said is coming true now, and I can’t find the guy anywhere on the net. Hmmmm. Guy was rite, nobody has said nothing about this. I’m nobody, just something I saw and kept in my pocket to see if the gentleman was lying. Far from it! This is the world stage programmed to play out by these psyopaths!

    HE said he know nothing about the call – Now he was on the line when phone call was made . The right wings are now trying to blame the Democrat for a Phone call Trump made and said he made , with Mike Pompeo saying he know nothing about the phone call , now saying he was on the Phone with Trump — Keep dancing GOP and lying you can fool all the right nut jobs , they so want to believe any lie you tell them .

    Remember when Mike Pompeo was a Congressman and he said that the President didn't release all of the information that Congress requested and needed to do so immediately because he didn't have a choice? That Benghazi investigation must have felt more important to him than colluding with the president now. I'l love to talk to him to see how that works… no soul? No conscience? Plans to do something else politically that he thinks this will lead to? Just plain hypocrite? All of the above?

    Where are the Republican Senators? Why hasnt their been a louder cry towards the corruption of the democrats? Why havent they held anyone of these lying democrats accountable along withe the corrupt media or deep state FBI, CIA or DEPT. Officials accountable? Are the Republican Senators also compromised?

    I'm impressed that it only took around a week for Pompeo to admit that he totally was lying about having no knowledge of the phone call to the Ukraine last week. Just is a total flip-flop now just Trump has done dozens and dozens of times as president. The only really surprising part is that one of Trump's swamp creatures would admit to lying so soon after doing so. Shocking!!!!!

    Hey Mike! There is something else I wanted to say to you in that email I sent to you the other day, but I was worried that you might start to cry.. so I didn't say it ;
    But it looks like you're a big boy now, and boys don't cry, so I'll tell you! To keep our nation's enemies in the dark, I've encrypted the message in a cipher that even an elementary school student can decode:

    If you have any trouble reading it, contact the Directorate of Digital Innovation / Engineering Development Group of your former Agency; they may be able to crack the algorithm…… and the next time I am in New Delhi, I'll walk up to the first floor and smack you around a bit with a large trout. 💔

    Donald Trump held back foreign emergency aid to a country under siege by our worst enemy Russia, aid sanctioned by Congress and the Senate, in order to press their leader to help him win an election. This is beyond illegal. He must be impeached.

    We have to support President Trump, and change into globalists: it is NOT a problem if foreign countries interfere in our elections. I agree with Trump that we even have to invite the world into our own elections. No nationalism for our democracy. Russians, Chinese, Venezuelans and Iranians might have great ideas, so let them participate in our elections: invite them into the USA and into our elections. If Trump thinks this a good idea, we have to follow him, and change, and tell everybody that globalism is great and nationalism sucks! maga 2020

    But Pompeo had a heady shot at a vaunted job that almost surely wasn’t going to come his way any other time. So he lunged for it, then demonstrated with his obsequiousness that doing good and doing right were never high on the agenda.
    He wrote an op-ed article that essentially broke with his fellow Republicans to promote Trump’s view that Saudi Arabia’s butchery of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi shouldn’t give anyone pause. What are a few severed body parts among allies?

    He recalled the ambassador to Ukraine just to please the president and his babbling Beelzebub, Rudy Giuliani. He listened mutely to that July 25 phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president, decided to ignore what he heard and then claimed — until a few days ago — that he was utterly in the dark about any pressure on Ukraine to kneecap Joe Biden.

    Had he spoken up or pushed back, he would have risked ending up on the outside, among the swelling Trump administration diaspora. He preferred the inside, with its glossier trappings and cushier thrones. He and his wife were diplomatic royalty, jetting around the world. He could bear the ache of a tongue full of tooth marks. Better to be a wretched part of history than no part at all.
