Pompeo: Agencies Have Assessed North Korean Reaction to 'Preventive' Strike

At a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Tuesday morning, CIA Director Mike Pompeo fielded a disturbing question from ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA): “Has the intelligence community assessed how the North Korean regime would react to a preventive United States attack?”

“We have,” Pompeo replied. “I would prefer to share that with you in closed session this afternoon.”

In open session though, Pompeo elaborated slightly: “We have written about various forms of actions,” he said. The intelligence community had also measured “the certainty and uncertainty we have around that analysis, as well as what we think happens in the event that the United States decides not to do that and continues to allow Kim Jong-un to develop his nuclear weapons arsenal,” Pompeo told the committee.

1. No question the traitor is keeping a first strike in his back pocket if needed to avoid

justice.

Though not sure how Putin would react to that. Tough to be a traitor and finding yourself between rock and cement wall.

Fortunately for trump the entire Republican Party are now also traitors so they will assist him.
