News broke earlier today that the corruption involved in Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal — when POTUS conducted a call with the Ukrainian president with the sole intent of extorting the country into producing dirt on his Democratic opponent, which was ultimately revealed by a whistleblower with first-hand knowledge — goes a whole hell of a lot deeper into his administration than we originally thought.
While we were all fairly certain that, at the very least, Trump’s right-hand man and Vice President Mike Pence had more than a little to do with the situation (and we were certainly correct in that assessment considering Trump himself ultimately threw Pence under the bus) up until just recently, we were pretty much in the dark as to how deeply that vein of corruption truly ran.
However, a bombshell report from the Wall Street Journal revealed that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was actually, personally in on the phone call that’s serving to be the ultimate demise of Donald Trump and his reign of terror.
Pompeo has already received a subpoena from the House Foreign Affairs Committee regarding his involvement in the whistleblower scandal, even before it was revealed that he was more than a little entangled in the ordeal. However, Pompeo’s involvement is perhaps not even the worst part.
During an interview with ABC’s “The Week” just mere days before the “transcript” of the call was released by the president himself in a last-ditch attempt to get himself out of hot water, Pompeo looked American citizens right in the face on live, national television and lied like a dog.
When questioned by the host regarding his knowledge on the contents of the call in question, Pompeo straight up claimed that he had no idea what took place in the conversation, therefore he couldn’t possibly comment on it.
“You just gave me information about a [intelligence community] report, none of which we’ve seen,” Pompeo said, a statement which we now know is blatantly false.
To cover both himself and the president’s ass, the Secretary of State quickly turned to the topic of Biden, “I do think if Vice President Biden behaved inappropriately if he was protecting his son and intervened with Ukrainian leadership in a way that was corrupt, I do think we need to get to the bottom of that,” he stated. “America can not have our elections interfered with if that’s what took place there.”
As the subpoenas start to quickly roll in, both Congress and the American public need to acknowledge the fact that not a single soul within that administration has any intention of telling the truth — whether it’s on a live news segment or under oath.
