It sounds like FAKE NEWS to me. Any corroboration??? I wouldn't put much stock in what leftist Seth Abrams has to say.

That's my understanding, that he's seriously looking at Robert's seat which is open in 2020.
I like him for it, think he'll win by a landslide.

He'll certainly fit in well with all the other Dempublican politicians in the Senate.

I would really like to know what you really believe. Saying Pompeo is a Dempublican is about equal with saying that Obama is a conservative republican. Either you are really stupid or you just have fun screwing with everyone on this forum.

I hope he hasn't become too corrupted by the Swamp. He's been an outlier in the Cabinet.

I don't know him well, met him a couple times back when he was just a Congressman, lol. My men's group 'coined' him, per se.
I would like to see Todd Tiahrt get back into it, but he and Vicki have moved on. Always liked them and we had friends in common.
Ron Estes seems like a decent guy. Met him, but don't know him. My oldest daughter has spent time around him and likes him, which says something for me.

It's a blessing to live in a place that produces decent pols. My District actually produces things, so we're reliably Rep. Imagine that, people who work want their Reps to keep taxes and regulations low...

It would take way too long to explain. But here are three statements that might help:

I believe the GOP and the DNC are the two halves of the Progressive Party and are eachothers' greatest allies in retaining power.
I believe that any politician that joins and represents the Party does does more harm than any good they could ever hope to accomplish by keeping the infrastructure for corruption and corporate influence(The GOP and DNC) in power.
Finally, I believe the role of Federal Government is to represent our interests in foreign affairs, protect the rights of the individual and nothing else.

Yep.

Here is the TIME online piece the JP referenced:

https://time.com/5732232/mike-pompeo...un-state-exit/

From that piece:

Quote:
As impeachment hearings gain steam, Pompeo faces a dilemma, say the three prominent Republicans, all of whom requested anonymity to discuss private conversations with Pompeo. On the one hand, the longer he stays, the greater the criticism of his failure to defend veteran diplomats and longstanding U.S. policies against the President’s politicization of foreign affairs. Pompeo has declined to defend by name either former ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch or diplomat William Taylor, both of whom gave damning testimony against Trump this month.

On the other, Trump and his loyalists are blaming Pompeo for the damning testimony of the State Department employees and for what the loyalists perceive as Pompeo’s insufficiently robust defense of the President.
I wonder how long it will be before Trump is describing him as "Dumb as a rock".

We'll see. I pretty much don't believe any reports these days. I'll wait till it happens. Personally I think Pompeo is doing a great job and I think he's thicker skinned than that..

Certain "people" are beneficial in key positions, for specific motives/agendas. Most key departures are planned. Optics.

Trump's calling the shots in the State Department and Spanky's just his errand boy. Good bet that he'll decide to "spend more time with is family," before he gets too much stink on him to get another job.
