Democrats warn Pompeo to stop ‘intimidating’ witnesses

Democrats warn Pompeo to stop 'intimidating' witnesses 1

 

The chairmen of the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees released a statement today responding to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s accusations that they were “intimidating and bullying” State Department officials by calling them for depositions related to the Ukraine inquiry.

Instead, the Democratic lawmakers accused Pompeo of “intimidating Department witnesses in order to protect himself and the President,” noting that he was on Trump's July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president.

    THIS ADMIADMINISTRATION IS SOOO UNPROFESSIONAL.

    • Oh sweet heart, professionalism is a really high bar when you are running a criminal enterprise.

    • Why don’t all you Trumplicans mosey on down to faux noose and leave cnn to us smart people. Please and thank you.

    • This administration was unprofessional long before they become administration

      @kathie TAYLOR CNN is known for never telling the truth. They are owned by the DNC. I suggest you find alternate news sources before passing judgment. CNN and MSNBC rarely commit journalism. You would be better off reading court documents from sites such as https://www.judicialwatch.org/ read what the judge has been saying. You won’t see it on CNN.

  4. How do you come up with a defence when the president admits it

    • @Greg Miller YES

    • They can claim the president has Alzheimer’s

    • @Bob Loblaw See…. here’s the problem. A statement like that, comes from both Democrats and Republicans….Since you did not identify who you are saying is lying. The problem is, Republicans are factually liars, and Democrats are factually NOT liars. But clearly both sides think they are getting the truth, or are amazing at deluding them selves. I don’t have rose colored glasses on for the Dems, they are idiots and get things wrong all the time….. this is not lying. Trump and Republicans lie, but the chumpies will not see it

    • @Jeremiah Not suggesting that only one party lies. However this administration and it’s sycophantic followers take lying to a whole new level. There is able evidence of who is the most corrupt party. The Republican Party has a long and sorted history of being corrupt.

      In the last 54 years the Democrats have been in office 25 of those years while Republicans held it for 29.

      In their 25 yrs in office Democrats had a total of three executive branch officials indicted with one conviction and one prison sentence. That’s one executive branch official convicted of a crime in two and a half decades of Democrat leadership.

      In the 29 yrs that Republicans have held office over the last 54 yrs, they have had a total of 121 criminal indictments of executive branch officials; 89 criminal convictions and 34 prison sentences handed down. That’s more prison sentences than years in office since 1968 for Republicans.

      Despite all the past republican corruption, they maintained a false mantra that they were the “party of justice”. Capital I Irony. And yet, given all the past republican corruption, nothing compares to the corruption of Trump’s administration. Those are the FACTS.

  5. Pompeo needs to get off his high horse an realize he works for the American people mot just trump

    • @ Brooke Williams …Pompeo is an American patriot? You sure about that?
      “I was a CIA director, we lied, we cheated we stole… like, we had entire
      training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American
      experiment.” – Mike Pompeo (Texas A&M University, April 15th
      2019)

    • Brooke Williams | October 1, 2019 at 11:52 PM | Reply

      @Jimmy Jazz Then I think that you should really consider what you are saying, as your statement really makes no sense! There is no hypocrisy … Calling oneself Christian has (and should have) nothing to do with the Relevancy of the Law. The two are (and should be) separate!

    • @Brooke Williams Look up how many of trumps lackeys claim Christianity and continue to support him through all the lies and even soliciting campaign help from foreign countries. Pompeo is one. There are many more. Forget that trump is out banging porn stars while his wife is home with a newborn.

    • And that’s exactly what he is doing, working for the country and helping get the truth and facts out. If you don’t like the facts that doesn’t change them.

    Pompeo and Giuliani continue to take the spotlight with no care of the consequences. Trump, jealous, is becoming more unhinged. We’ll see what happens. Whatever it is, this month will be one to REMEMBER.

    • Ha Ha, democrats can’t stand being investigated.

    • Dicky Jones what are you talking about?

    • Donald Sanders | October 1, 2019 at 4:53 PM | Reply

      @joe Domjan he’s commenting in every section there’s something wrong with him,

    • Pompeo and Guiliani along with Cohen and all other Trump defenders are worse than the enabling weak congress. Trump is loyal to noone. He is a snake and snake eat their mates and offspring to survive. Likewise he will turn on everyone to save his own tail. Like an abused spouse they are in serious denial and do not see the writing on the wall.

  7. Props to the whistleblower…that is what courage and duty looks like.

  8. Why does the media keep letting Dumb Donald continue to get away with saying that the whistleblower’s complaint is all lies when in fact it matches up PERFECT with Dumb Donald’s phone call to solicit the services of a foreign govt to interfere in our presidential elections, AGAIN 😳

      why does media keep Biden off the hook when he bragged himself on a camera about firing ukrainian prosecutor by revoking money supply, a prosecutor that investigated a corruption in Biden’s son bussiness. I think the true honest dems should be the ones to support Trump with investigation to bleach their party of corruption mud.

    • Павел Коровкин Biden is not the President idiot and every country in Europe wanted the corrupt prosecutor removed as well, although he’s probably not as corrupt as the draft dodger-in-chief who also appears to be Putin’s First Lady 😳

    • Павел Коровкин | October 2, 2019 at 7:22 AM | Reply

      @clay cox I like you, your arguments are the epitomy of dumbness. The moment Biden said he peed on your wife you would reply with “she need it, urine is full of minerals, it’s the free healthcare we need.”

  9. “I don’t tolerate attempts to Intimidate state department official” says someone who is intimidated himself!

    Looks like someone is projecting something!

    Why would state officials be intimidated? They aren’t the ones guilty of anything!

    I now truly believe this administration had Epstein killed😐

    • When Trump said the Clinton’s had Epstein killed, to me it was an admission that he was involved with Epstein’s murder, BECAUSE Trump always tries to turn a situation around. It is a self-indictment that merits serious study. In the least, Trump knows who did it.

    • @Robert He also knows who killed the journalist.

    • @Robert To me that was a joke in reference to the trail of bodies left in Hillary’s wake, I believe over 50. No one has that many associates commit suicide or being murdered during their life. Especially when some of them were ready to testify against her for criminal activity. Also Bill was on Epstein Lolita express and Island several times. To me sounds like getting rid of the evidence.

    • You may want to look up Hillary’s trail of bodies and evaluate it.

    • @Tom Myers the green bowl massacuer. Sure it’s nothing like PAB.. He’s not inocent by farrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Pompeo’s credibility is gone after lying all week.

  12. Congress needs to stop talking, if someone is in contempt…throw them in the Klink. Do it.

    • John Kidd : You Trump guys have Jumped The Shark, by going after Biden SO egregiously. That, and taking the comments SO personally, were your biggest mistakes this week. You’re not having ANY fun, any more 😁

    • @Ash Roskell Dealing with lying Dems is no fun, you are right about that but good times are coming for us as I explained.

    • John Kid : You have yet to, “explain,” anything, son? Why is Hillary still free, after 3 years of her Arch Enemy, the most powerful man on Earth, FAILING to, “Lock Her Up,” when she, “murdered staffers, sold our uranium, ran a pedo ring, covered up Benghazi, got help from Russia AND Ukraine in the elections, and bleached all that Intel,” Kidd? See what I mean about, “Jumped The Shark?”
      You thought Biden’s fellow GOP members were going to let you do the SAME THING to him? They’re plotting Trump’s demise as we speak, son! You’re Trolling the WRONG people? You should be on Fox, trying to persuade the GOP not to Impeach him. Because they ARE GOING TO IMPEACH TRUMP! Remember I told you that, won’t you . . . Kiddo 😉

    • Do you mean Colonel Klink?

    • Start with Hillary and Comey!!

    • @UCWGAm-FjWc4CSlznK0xeSRg . Wow. You just copied and pasted all of the Trumpflake cliches. Here’s a clue for you – mindlessly repeating what Trump, the teller of over twelve thousand lies, says doesn’t make them. true. It just makes you sound like a blind fool.

      Anne Marie Sorry bro those 2 comments i meant to send to other people chill chill i aint fucing on you i respect you👌🏿 we cool🤭

    • @The Almighty Toaster Because of the fake news and you blatant disregard for facts and truth.

  15. Charge him with obstruction of Congress now.

    Enough is enough.

  16. Please tell me that there is some kind of law or Clause that allows these corrupt individuals to be temporarily removed or placed on hold as to not interfere with an ongoing investigation? You guys know damn well that Pompeo and Barr are not going to comply with subpoena

    • @Ash Roskell they as far as i can tell havent done anything wrong. And if amarricans have any sense left come elecrion day the dems will get pushed out of power so we can get past thier delusions and get to trying to repair the damage they have caused

    • scratch : Jail. I already said, son? Wouldn’t YOU be afraid of jail? . . . 🤔

    • scratch : You can’t even SPELL, “elecrion,” son. You’re not American. The GOP is SICK of Trump. The Senate are about to perform a Julius Caesar on him 😁

    • @Ash Roskell well one no im not afraid of jail really. Two i dont believe it would be wise to take trump down until the left finishes its self destruction.

    • Also if the only argument you can come up with is pointing out a miss spelled word then why participate in the discussion.

    “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” – Muhammad Ali

    🧐 – The Democratic Party Representatives (and the few Republican Representatives with morals), needs to start ‘stinging’ ie hold various individuals in contempt, and put them in jail.

    • Its a subpoena war,there is always a way to hand them out like candy on Halloween.

    • Absolutely. And it should be “inherent contempt”, followed by an IMMEDIATE arrest by the House of Representatives’ Sergeant at Arms.

      And wouldn’t it be great if they had a few bees in the jail too.

      (I was stung by a few paper wasps the other day… they were well trained in the art of stinging. One scored a direct hit in my throat and one managed to launch an attack on my eyelid. And I was advised to visit the emergency. I think I didn’t deserve it as I have never committed an impeachable crime.)

    “Somebody needs to charge Trump NOW with a promise to prosecute him the minute he leaves office.”
    I was really thinking of the whisleblower’s safety. There must be some law he has violated in jeapordising the person’s safety. He has to be stopped right now.

      That “a sitting,president can’t be indited” was invented by Barr. It is NOT law. Charge him NOW.

    Between the “whistleblower” and a “trumpblower”, I choose the former.
