*The Times reported that these meetings took place as Pompeo was “considering a run for the Senate from his adopted home state of Kansas and as he nurtures plans for a presidential bid in 2024.”*

They should report that “Many people are saying he’s been plotting behind Trump’s back.”

There is NO shame. No morals. No regard for the laws. That’s the GOP way. There won’t be any investigation by the GOP controlled Senate. Inspector Generals across multiple agencies are getting fired by the President for truly political reasons, yet the GOP Senate won’t investigate.

Just like everything else with this administration, it will be defended as fake news and swept under the rug.

Someone should mention to Trump that it looks like Pompeo is trying to take away his money from those donors. Let Trump’s paranoia do the rest.

The Secretary of State needs to be taking care of foreign policy and business, not to meet with donors. This is the worst administration ever. It’s corruption and incompetency from top to bottom.

I was hoping that Pompeo would be investigated enough to reveal my favorite power theory that he’s with The Family. Imagine being Secretary of State and using that office to acquire an office of lesser stature. Something’s going on here.

I’m a solid Dem and not a fan at all of Pompeo, but I’m struggling to find outrage on this one. I would have assumed that most politicians meet with supporters when they travel, assuming that completed their original travel mission first. What am I missing?

If Trump could be convinced that Pompeo has his eyes set on winning the presidency, and is actively trying to undermine Trump, there is a good chance Trump would fire him.

I just hope if Biden wins, all these corrupt people are investigated. I just don’t have high hopes. But it must be done. Because if not, we’re going to get another Trump. But this time that person will know how to speak in complete sentences and actually enact policies that are bad and be able to do it.
