Pompeo: 'Ludicrous' to think Trump is threat to US national security

Source: The Hill



BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/12/19 11:27 AM EST

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says in an interview set to air Sunday that it is "ludicrous" to think that President Trump is a threat to national security.

The Cabinet official was responding to a report from The New York Times published Friday night that claimed FBI agents began investigating whether Trump was working on behalf of Russia after he fired FBI Director James Comey in 2017.

"I'm not going to comment on New York Times stories, but I'll certainly say this: the- the notion that President Trump is a threat to American national security is absolutely ludicrous," Pompeo told CBS' Margaret Brennan for an interview set to air on "Face the Nation."

"The idea that's contained in the New York Times story that President Trump was a threat to American national security is silly on its face and not worthy of a response," he added.

10. Not exactly Mike, Not exactly

What is ludicrous is believing trump has America's best interest in mind. Also ludicrous: that a co-conspirator in treason (Pompeo) would admit as much.

We have be betrayed and it is ongoing.

12. A great number of times

A great number of times I have seen a police officer or psychiatrist place someone on a 72 hour mental health hold and transport them to a mental health facility for being less delusional than what we are witnessing from Trump daily. I am serious!!!!!

In addition, he could be deemed dangerous to himself or others, and that also is a cause for a 72 hour mental health hold with physical restraints if necessary.

The real cause that allows this to continue now for nearly two years, is the TOTALLY COMPLICIT Republicans in the House and Senate. Period. The RNC, and all Republican Politicians have sold out ALL the rest of the nation for their own power and wealth.
They have put us and the rest of the world in grave danger.............

13. I'd have to say Pompeo is the greater threat

 

given that he's active operationally, so well placed, and pushing two new prospective major wars right at this moment (Iran and Venezuela).

There is nobody to give pushback on any of Trump's cockamamie ideas. Certainly not Pompeo. And Kelly wasn't that great at it either.

He's part of the regime too. Who can forget how chummy he was with the MBS Saudi Arabia Prince before or after Khashoggi was tortured and sawed into pieces.

23. Then, color me "ludicrous". I hope it isn't any shade of orange.

I'm all for removing sanctions against Russia, but let's wait until Russia gets out of Ukraine and returns Crimea to Ukraine control.

After that, yeah, we can be cordial.

It is obvious that Donald Trump does indeed present a clear and Present danger to the stability and National Security of this Nation.

Serving the interests of Russia and Putin is your first clue, Sherlock Pompeo.

31. A Looming Threat to US South Korea Alliance

A Looming Threat to US South Korea Alliance
the Hill David Maxwell 1/4

The alliance between the Republic of Korea and the United States may be about to go off the rails. Two critical events occurred in December 2018 that do not bode well for the future of this crucial alliance. First, talks between the ROK and U.S. governments collapsed without reaching a new Special Measures Agreement (SMA) to fund U.S. troops on the Peninsula before the current deal expired on December 31...

...Trump seems not to recognize that the ROK makes significant contributions to its own defense. In 2017, 2.7 percent of its GDP went to defense a higher percentage than any member of NATO except the U.S...


Beyond this the South Korean people paid almost the entire bill for the new USFK headquarters at Camp Humphreys, the largest US military base outside the US at a cost of billions.
