Pompeo Responds to NYT Story Trump Is a “National Security Threat”

4

If you remember back to 2016 and 2017, the left-wing media and Democrats accused everyone on the right of being Russian puppets or dupes or outright spies. They accused Rep. Devin Nunes of being a Russian pawn.

For the NY Times or their sources to call President Trump a “threat to national security” is as ridiculous on the face of it. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo thinks so too.

“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’s 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.

At what point will the Democrats and their media have gone too far?

President Trump responded in a series of tweets:

  1. Can there be a precedent any more dangerous than essentially accusing a President of “treason”, because this is precisely what the impetus was in beginning such an “investigation”. Anyone who participated in this venture should be indicted for “sedition”, at the least. What is MORE troubling is the FEW who have spoken against such actions. We have crossed a precipice that mere political differences can can be used in no less than an overthrow of a current administration. What would prevent some nefarious operators in the future in fully completing such a deed. What everyone “says” they are concerned about is the rise of another Hitler, but those silent ones have just made it possible in the future, and possibly a not-to-distant future.

    Over these last two years it has become more evident that whoever the President has been it has not been his direction that has been implemented but whether or not the administrative state, the Deep State, has “agreed” with those policies. Clearly this, “State”, has not been in agreement with Trump’s policies or methods. We next need to consider is; how are members of Congress complicit in this action. They have “allowed” the use of “state secrets” to forbid ANY oversight or even daylight into “Deep Intelligence”. Schumer let us all know how Dangerous the Government is now, yet it has been brushed aside. Too many “Conservatives” are accepting of the status quo and see no danger for the Republic, and are more concerned with daily play by play calls that are of no consequence in the long run.

    • The situation is very dangerous. I favor massive retribution against the conspirators. Republican “leaders” in Congress did not speak up for Trump, in acts of cowardice and corruption. The leadership knew of the spying on Trump due to FISA reporting requirement. When Nunes told Ryan that Trump has been spied on using State/DOJ fake information, Ryan immediately launched ethics charges against Nunes in an unrelated matter with no substance. This places Ryan as one of the conspirators. Ryan blocked the most significant actions the House needed to take, such as contempt, impeachment, and more subpoenas. He allowed only a trickle of information. Mitch set up Burr to run an anti-Trump operation in Intelligence which is still underway.

      I would characterize the differences which led to this witch hunt as more than just political. The assault on Trump is due to his nationalism and the culpability of the conspirators in their various illegal/unethical operations (i.e uranium sale). It will not happen to a liberal. Anyone that wants to give away America will be fine with the deep state.
