The democrats are absolutely raging this week, emboldened by Nancy Pelosi’s latest semantic mutation on “impeachment”, which, to them, marks an advance toward the end of the Trump Era.
For the rest of us, however, this is just another attempt by the “resistance” to somehow nullify the 2016 election simply because they weren’t content with the outcome.
Democratic lawmakers have taken the bait, of course, and are now rushing full steam into what their leadership is calling a “formal impeachment inquiry”, and issuing subpoenas left and right, hoping to ensnare anyone that will help them in their cause.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo isn’t having it.
In a letter and in tweets on Tuesday, Pompeo accused those Democrats of attempting to “intimidate” and “bully” the State Department’s foreign service officers (FSOs) and said depositions being sought by Congress are “not feasible.”
The “requested dates for depositions are not feasible,” Pompeo wrote, claiming the lawmakers have not given the employees enough time to prepare and voicing concern that they’re trying to prevent State Department counsel from participating in the depositions. Pompeo said Executive Branch counsel would have to be present.
His words were unmistakable.
“Let me be clear: I will not tolerate such tactics, and I will use all means at my disposal to prevent and expose any attempts to intimidate the dedicated professionals whom I am proud to lead and serve alongside at the Department of State,” Pompeo tweeted in response to the Democrats’ demand for depositions.
The rebuke comes after House Democrats schedule depositions for a number of State Department officials for this week and next.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
