"We took this seriously, we handled it appropriately," Pompeo said, without giving additional details

I don't understand. POTUS said it was a hoax. Why would they take a hoax seriously?

I think we're at the consider-the-opposite-of-anything-Trum​p-says point in the story.  Even his own party is starting to question him.  I just hope for them that it's too-little, too-late.

hoax
/hōks/

noun

Something true and indefensible in 2020.
"Trump, who knew for months that Russia was offering bounties to kill American troops, called it a hoax."

"The White House has insisted that Trump wasn't briefed on the assessments because they hadn't been verified, even though it's rare for intelligence to be confirmed without a shadow of doubt before it is presented to senior government decision-makers."

CNN said this in one of their articles too. I'm glad it's being repeatedly pointed out that this talking point is bullshiat.

I've seen and enjoyed a few of his videos. He seems genuine and he does a good job of breaking things down and there's something about his delivery that is enjoyable, he's well spoken and someone you would like to have a beer with.

Seems like you're focused on the wrong bit. Leaking classified information when THE farkING PRESIDENT IGNORES IT AND ACTIVELY COURTS THE ENEMY is, pretty much, the very least of your god damned duty. Leaking it for personal gain? Yep, big problem there. When the president openly assists the country paying someone else to kill your soldiers with, say, rejoining the G7, well, I'd like to know that's happening because it seems like..... damn it, what's the word.... oh yeah.

Treason.

Pompeo said the administration receives intelligence about threats to Americans "every single day" and each is addressed.

Let's see what this dipshiat had to say about the Benghazi embassy raid:

the administration misled the public about the events in Benghazi, that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to lead in providing adequate security for the U.S. embassy, and that "America did not move heaven and earth to rescue our people." At a press conference Tuesday, Pompeo said he believed in his heart that Clinton's actions were "morally reprehensible"

Mitch McConnell would be back to minority with 51, and that would be SOMETHING! He is far worse than Trump with his competent, strategic brand of evil. We can't knock them down below 40 until 2022, but it can be done.

I thought classified hoaxes to don't exist? Or do you mean this is a classified operation by US intelligence agencies? They perpetrated a hoax bounty as a honeypot?

Or it is true, but leaked?

McConnell was the most powerful man in DC as the Senate Minority Leader during the Obama administration. He'll relish in that role again. Majority, minority, doesn't make a difference. As long as he personally opposes something, it won't pass.

There's more:

The U.S. military never reached Benghazi. Not only did it not get to Benghazi, it did not get to Libya during the 7-plus hours of the ongoing attack. The only support unit that did arrive in Tripoli-the Marine "Fleet Anti-Terrorism Support Team" or "FAST" team-was anything but fast, and arrived in Libya nearly 24 hours after the attack had begun and 16-plus hours after the attack ended. In fact, it did not take off until almost 12 hours after the attack ended. Why?

I'd love an explanation about why he hasn't had an absolute heart attack over the fact that the president knew our soldiers were in danger for months.

We are aware that he is the modern day Strom Thurman. It's only baffling that so many other Republicans are willing to follow him. He's basically gerrymandering in human form. Great for short term wins, but you'll inevitably lose much more and be known as an inhumane ghoul for all of American history.

I bet back in Nazi Germany you would have been one of those dudes that just said I was only following orders. It's against the law to follow illegal orders and when you've got the government covering b******* like this up it is not only their job but it's the responsibility to uncover it. Trump is the president of the United States. He can't murder somebody and say well that's classified top secret can't talk about that. It doesn't work that way.

No problem. All Trump has to do is say he ignored it because he thought ignoring it would help his electoral chances.

What the media is reporting is a hoax. While intelligence agencies have briefed officials on matters that make this hoax seem real, there is additional, Predisent-eyes-only information that proves otherwise. We'd love to reveal it and prove our innocence, but we can't because of national security. I *am* allowed to disclose these two words to you though: Obama, false flag. You'll have to connect the dots yourselves, I've said too much already.

Nancy says we know its real because they briefed her so it must be real - after they asked to be briefed on this topic. Circular logic.

That's not how intelligence works.

But to answer your last point, those that received payments for their homicides have admitted such.
