Any hope that Pompeo had of running for president is rapidly fading away.

the man's incompetence is clearly on display.


Good.

Watching the hearings on CSPAN. I had to mute the audio during the break because of the stupid call-ins.

My god, they were stupid. Why do they still do that? People don't have enough outlets for their inane ranting these days?

“As someone who was working in the White House during Somalia, which was one of the major crises of the Clinton admin ... [the idea] that somehow a junior foreign service officer could have anything to do with the situation in that country is beyond absurd.”

If nothing else, it clearly indicates just how awful a SoS Pompeo is. His administrative abilities suck dog crap though a straw.

Wow. Fox News' Bret Baier says that Trump's tweets attacking Yovanovitch could be construed as witness intimidation and hence "adding essentially an article of impeachment in real time as this hearing is going on."

I don't think I've ever see Rosenberg so warm under the collar.
Chuck Rosenberg rips into Mike Pompeo: "His silence is deafening. It is an act of abject cowardice. I am astonished that somebody who ... was an Army officer does not have the spine to stand up for the people in his organization who are being denigrated by this president." @MSNBC

Then he ends it with his crappy legal opinion that it does not arise to witness intimidation. :doh:

Retweeted Kyle Griffin

More Rosenberg hitting Pompeo: "Complicity will be determined down the road ... I know what I see. And what I see from him is a complete failure of leadership. I doubt he’s watching this show and I doubt he’s listening to me. But if he was, I would tell him he’s a coward." @MSNBC

Desperately trying to defend the premise that 1) there was no Russian interference in the 2016 election on 45's behalf, 2) Ukraine interfered with the 2016 election on Clinton's behalf and made it look Russia did it on 45's behalf, 3) 45 was single-handedly trying to vet corrupt activities in Ukraine, and 4) the Dems are trying to take down 45 because they're mad Clinton lost the election.

Have I got that right? It was really hard to put that together without referencing the absurdites. God, what a house of cards.

The Guardian: Pelosi: 'Witness intimidation is a crime'

Asked about Trump’s tweet disparaging Maria Yovanovitch as the longtime diplomat testified at the impeachment hearing, Nancy Pelosi said she had not yet seen the tweet but noted that “witness intimidation is a crime.”

The House speaker also mocked the president when asked if the tweet was appropriate. “Appropriate and president in the same sentence? Come on. Why would we start making that judgment now?” Pelosi said.

Attempted intimidation is not in the Constitution. :mrgreen:


Which is to say, Ms. Yovanovitch doesn't seem to be intimidated. She's refusing to be bullied. A metric shitload of respect for her, I haz one. :blink:

America hired @realDonaldTrump to fire people like the first three witnesses we’ve seen. Career government bureaucrats and nothing more.
