Pompeo’s response: “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”Pompeo, an arch-conservative ex-House Republican who refused to testify to Congress about impeachable acts by Donald Trump that he himself was involved in, chose to give the answer of a corrupt autocrat’s lackey rather than defend this nation’s elections. By falsely calling Trump’s loss into question, each statement like this one escalates the likelihood of domestic terrorism by Trump’s addled base.- Advertisement –last_img read more
