Trump’s administration is as corrupt as any administration in history. It is likely Trump’s is the MOST corrupt period.
He has surrounded himself with individuals that willingly support his lies and conspiracy theories. Even after they have been soundly debunked. Secretary of State Pompeo is now shilling for and lying for the “president”. Simply one among many.
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defiantly insisted on Saturday in Greece that the Trump administration was right to ask Ukrainian officials to investigate claims of election interference in the 2016 American presidential campaign, bolstering a widely debunked conspiracy theorythat had already been dismissed by his own diplomatic envoy.
In comments to journalists in Athens, where he was meeting with Greek leaders, Mr. Pompeo said it was the “duty” of the Trump administration to pursue whether efforts to tamper in the United States election were rooted in Ukraine, even though the American intelligence agencies have long concluded Russia was to blame.
And of the impeachment proceedings by House Democrats — the result of a July 25 telephone call in which President Trump pressured President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine to investigate his political rivals — Mr. Pompeo said, “I think there’s clearly politics involved in this.”
Yeah, there is definitely politics involved. Without a doubt Pompeo is spinning and lying in efforts to save Trump from himself.
Pompeo is no better than the lying narcissist that is presently casting a black shadow over the presidency and the nation.

What a POS the current “president” of the United States is.
