Pompeo Took Part in Trump-Zelensky Phone Call, Official Says

Source: wALL STREET JOURNAL

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was among administration officials who listened in on the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a senior State Department official said Monday, a disclosure that ties the State Department more closely to the House impeachment inquiry.

Mr. Pompeoís participation on the call hasnít been previously reported. Last week, a State Department official disputed the contention in a complaint filed under federal whistleblower laws by a Central Intelligence Agency officer that another top State Department official, counselor Ulrich Brechbuhl, listened in on the call.

House Democrats have opened an impeachment inquiry focused on Mr. Trumpís dealings with Ukraine, and lawmakers are focusing on the whistleblower complaint and a record of the call released by the administration.

Three House committees on Friday subpoenaed Mr. Pompeo for documents related to the inquiry; the secretary has until Oct. 4 to produce them. Separately, the committees plan to depose five current or former State Department officials regarding Ukraine.

7. Dumb ass.

OK Mike, I'll explain. When the President does something, anything, leave the room. That way you cannot be complicit in a crime.

15. "Took part in" means "listened to?"

Last edited Tue Oct 1, 2019, 11:07 AM - Edit history (1)

"Participation" means listening to? I don't think so. That would mean all the whistleblowers informants "participated in" the call. That's a stretch.

16. I think they might be setting up Pompeo to take the fall just as Scooter Libby did for Cheney.

I don't think it will work.
