They were using state department professionals as their personal servants. A family of unpatriotic, evil morons.

Do a similar investigation but for criminal violations, do one on carson as well, his wife spending fed dollars on redecorating and some self dealing doing it is traditionally illegal.

I'd have to take some time and really think about my "Love To See Then Legally Strung Up By Their Balls" power rankings, but Pompeo is Top 5 for sure. The holier-than-thou smugness he has is just unbearable.

Just would be he and Imelda dying in the pen in Leavenworth.

Wife-like grifting detected.

Please oh please go after the former ambassador to Portugal next he was so farking worthless

Yes, and? Is someone going to do something? No? Okay, then.

Grifter gotta grift. That goes double for his wife, who is a well-known DC grifter.

If true that is actually an extremely serious charge and they would need to repay in full to the Treasury Department.

/btw - f that guy

Pompeos smugness was extra annoying because it seemed like he thought he was some sort of clever playmaker when in reality his machinations were painfully obvious and dimwitted.

The irritating thing about this story to me is the amount of sheer personal servitude Pompeo and his wife expected yet never once did someone slap the shiat out of either of them for asking stupid shiat.

At least grab your junk and waggle it at them when they ask. Have some pride in yourself.

FTFA:

"The report did not call for any disciplinary action against Pompeo because he is no longer in office, but did recommend steps the State Department should take to "mitigate the risk of future senior leaders committing similar violations."

So, yeah.

Wasn't it also unethical for him and trump to move the US embassy in Israel for the express purpose of appeasing Pompeos death cult?

IRestoreFurniture: Wasn't it also unethical for him and trump to move the US embassy in Israel for the express purpose of appeasing Pompeos death cult?

"You know it's amazing with that, the evangelicals are more excited about that than Jewish people. It's really- right? It's incredible," Trump continued.


Jesus F*cking Christ, what an asshole. I hope Israel's neighbors are getting more pissed off by the day. I know I would be. That's like having a neighbor going out every morning to get his paper, and he just takes a sh*t on your lawn.

The report comes as Pompeo pours money into a new political group amid speculation about a possible 2024 presidential run.

C'mon, this can't be serious. He'd finish 18th in a 16-candidate primary. But spend your friends' money, what do I care?
 
2021-04-17 5:47:32 PM  
"The poor quality of the report bespeaks not merely unprofessionalism in its drafting but also bias, which we are concerned may be politically motivated," Pompeo's lawyer, William Burck, said in a response appended to the report.

This is the State Department Office of the Inspector General, not Lin Wood and Sidney Powell.

And Moscow Mitch and his wife - she spent the whole of trump's term doing favors for her husband's buddies in KY and lining the pockets of her family's shipping company.

Like getting coffee, picking up the dry cleaning?  Running junior's lunch ehen he forgot it?

Or like real stuff?

I'd be more surprised if there was a Republican that DIDN'T misuse government funds. Corruption is a core plank in the GQP's platform.

The list is long, and the competition mighty, but Pompeo and Miller are at the top of my list of people that are in desperate need of a heavy dose of karma.

The investigation on Cho is already done and criminal charges were recommended but AG billy Barr said no need. It can and should be reviewed and charges brought
