(RightWing.org) – The Democratic Party must really love investigations because they want another one. This time it’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in their crosshairs. Why? All because he gave a speech.
At the Republican National Convention (RNC) on August 25, Pompeo spoke from a rooftop in Jerusalem, with the city’s holy sites behind him.
Democrats were angry and accused the secretary of violating the ethics laws. Now, Reps. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Eliot Engel (D-NY) want the State Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) to investigate the Trump official for the speech. The Leftists claim Pompeo “appears to have violated” a ban on political activity by State employees.
Pompeo dismissed the allegations on Wednesday. The secretary said he spoke for the president at the RNC in his “personal capacity,” and it was perfectly legal.
The Democratic Party should be working on another aid package to get the American people through the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, they’re focused on investigating Pompeo. It shows where their priorities are.
