Mike Pompeo Cleared by Inspector General
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been cleared by the Office of the Inspector General over an emergency arm deal to Saudi Arabia.
According to The Hill:
The State Department’s internal watchdog on Tuesday said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was within his authority last year to push through billion-dollar arms sales to allies in the Middle East, but faulted him for not ensuring American weapons weren’t used against civilian populations.Advertisement
The findings are part of a controversial investigation launched at the request of Congress to probe Pompeo’s use of an emergency declaration in May 2019 to sell more than $8 billion in weapons to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan and without the approval of Congress.
The report’s publication is also a key part of Democrats’ probe into the ousting of Inspector General Steve Linick, whom President Trump abruptly fired in mid-May at the request of Pompeo.
Linick had launched the investigation in June 2019 at the request of Congress — and in particular Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs — over the legality of the arms sales.
The move was made by Pompeo under the authority given to him by the Arms Export Control Act, which the Inspector General ruled gave him authority to do so.
Well, OF COURSE!! Pompeo is a DEEP STATE, America-HATING Globalist POS!! And that CRIMINAL is taking POTUS Trump in the Globalist direction!! He should be IN PRISON!!
DawnieR, you are the POS. You have not a clue except your hate and venomous prattle.
Thank you, Sec of State Pompeo, you are a true patriot and are holding up the hands of our great President, Donald J. Trump. God bless you and all of yours!
THe names of those who requested this bogus investigations should be released to the public, because there is only one reason they would try to block it, these weapons will be used to fight back against Iran. So, who does Iran still have in our government, now that Obama is gone?
Bob Mendez and Eliot Engel. They were the other two.
Iran has Slo’ Joe in Our Government, Pulling strings and the wool over the Eyes of many Liberals, as well as “Playing” such Terrorists as AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayana Presley
So what would the inspector general say about Gen Milley’s giving 80 Billion in high tech and classified arms to the Taliban Terrorist regime in Afghanistan and Iran?
