On January 20th, CIA deputy director BatFace (David S. Cohen) and side-kick Robin (John Brennan) were relieved of their duties at the agency, but questions still linger as to what they were doing holding secret meetings with the Mossad about undermining Trump, as well as whether this duo was behind the crude disinfo about the President leaked through Buzzfeed .
GOP representatives have come out against hardline Zionist Jew Chuck Schumer’s obstruction of Trump’s CIA appointee Mike Pompeo as Washington partisanship, but other candidates have managed to get through so that can’t be it. Out of all of them, Pompeo is one of the least “controversial.”
There’s stink lines infusing the air around the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, and it’s the unmistakable pungent odor of Gefilte fish.
When President Donald Trump visited the CIA Saturday, he had hoped that CIA Director Mike Pompeo would accompany him. But when Trump arrived at the Langley, Virginia, headquarters of the Agency, he was instead accompanied by Congressman Mike Pompeo.
Representative Pompeo will almost certainly be confirmed as CIA Director on Monday. And the CIA will no doubt survive two days without its new leader. But the nastiness of the partisan sniping between top Republicans and Democrats that led to the delay may well have a lasting impact on the Senate – in this Congress and beyond.
According to six sources familiar with the negotiations over Pompeo’s confirmation, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told Republican leaders that he would allow Pompeo to be confirmed by voice vote on Inauguration Day, along with two other Trump nominees who have national security responsibilities. But Schumer broke his promise, these sources say, and offered an insulting excuse for having done so.
“Trust is important, even between adversaries,” says Senator John Cornyn, one of the Republicans involved in the discussions. “And that trust has been damaged.”
According to sources familiar with the discussions, Schumer asked his Republican colleagues to delay Pompeo’s hearing for one day. “Democrats asked that the hearing be moved so that six hearings did not occur on one day,” says a senior Democratic senate aide. “That many cabinet hearings in a single day had only happened once in American history, and it was an unfair schedule to senators on both sides. Republicans accommodated that request.”
Among the reasons Schumer cited: Senator Dianne Feinstein, who had until this Congress been ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee and is currently ranking member on Senate Judiciary, complained that the schedule would prevent her from attending hearings for both Pompeo and Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions.
McConnell consulted Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, Intel committee member Tom Cotton, and the incoming Trump administration. Republicans agreed to delay Pompeo, whose team was happy to have an extra day to prepare. But the Republicans had a condition. If we agree to push back Pompeo’s hearing for a day, they told Schumer, you must agree to include him in the group of national security officials who will be confirmed by a voice vote on Inauguration Day, January 20. According to these sources, Schumer agreed, with alacrity, having secured the delay he’d sought.
But on January 19, one day before Trump’s inauguration, (((Ron Wyden))) said he’d seek to delay Pompeo’s confirmation when the Senate convened late Friday afternoon. That evening Cotton, who is close to Pompeo from their time together in the House of Representatives, began calling his colleagues on the Senate Intelligence Committee, including Wyden, seeking to avoid the delay. Some of the calls were cordial. Others were testy.
Schumer told Cotton that the Senate had never previously confirmed a CIA director on Inauguration Day and if Cotton had been around eight years earlier, he’d know that Republicans didn’t extend that courtesy for incoming president Barack Obama. “Eight years ago, I was getting my ass shot at in Afghanistan,” Cotton snapped. “So don’t talk to me about where I was 8 years ago.”
Cotton asked Schumer why he’d gone back on his word. Schumer claimed that he’d only been speaking for himself when he promised to let Pompeo through. “I said that I would not block him,” Schumer said, emphasizing the personal pronoun, according to sources who witnessed the exchange. “I never said that I could speak for 47 other Democrats.”
The Republicans were stunned.
“I’m not telling Ron Wyden to do this,” Schumer declared. “Why don’t you go talk to Wyden?”
The tl;dr version of this is that Chuck Schumer promised that he would get Pompeo through to the Republicans, but would wait until inauguration day because the Jew Diane Feinstein couldn’t be present for the hearing. When the day came, the Jew Ron Wyden voted ‘no’ on Pompeo. When GOP Congressmen confronted Minority leader Schumer about lying, he said “I neva’ said all Democrats would approve, just that I wouldn’t personally block him, ya putz!”
Now that’s some Brooklyn-style suit-and-tie gypsy chutzpah.
It’s possible that this is just partisan trolling, but why here, why leave the CIA without a leader for days? And why are all the people engaging directly in this malfeasance Jewish?
Only 6% of the 115th Congress is Jewish. Dianne Feinstein (CA), Chuck Schumer (NY), and Ron Wyden (OR) just so happen to be dual citizens of Israel.
Pompeo did finally get confirmed on Monday, with Schumer acting like nothing happened.
CIA Director Pompeo must immediately conduct an all encompassing internal review as to whether the CIA was meddling with the 2016 election, and all of their activities, particularly in relation to foreign entities, once Trump was elected.
