Pompeo discusses the easiest ways to get out of the State Department and run for the Senate

 US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has revealed to three prominent Republicans in recent weeks his intention to resign from the Donald Trump administration to run for Kansas in the November elections, Time magazine reported. .

According to Time magazine, Pompeo was aiming to stay in the State Department until early spring next year, but recent developments, including the realization of Trump's isolation, hurt him politically and strained his relationship with the president.

US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Otargos said on Wednesday the minister had told her the news was "totally untrue."

The three Republicans to whom Time talked about the issue are "senior party members, one serving in the Trump administration, the other still in the administration, the third in several senior positions and a politically active Republican."

Pompeo is reshuffling his agenda, they told the magazine.

Time said there was no indication whether Pompeo had discussed his plans with Trump, but rumors of his desire to run in next year's Senate election have been widely circulated in recent months.

Although Pompeo denied his desire to run, he did not rule out that.

Pompeo has made several visits to his state of Kansas since the beginning of this year, reinforcing the rumors, because such visits are normal for elected politicians such as members of Congress who have to meet their constituents, but they are unusual for the US secretary of state, who is usually What is involved in foreign policy and international crises.

Pompeo enjoys strong support from evangelical evangelists, who are radical Christians who support Jewish settlement in the Palestinian territories with great enthusiasm that the Jewish control of the entire Holy Land will accelerate the return of Jesus Christ and the Day of Resurrection "where God gives the Jews the option to convert to Christianity or burn".

Pompeo won a House seat in the 2010 election for the Tea Party, the far-right Republican party, as part of a wave of Republicans re-taking control of the House in reaction to the election of former President Barack Obama, the first African American president.

Pompeo now faces many accusations that he has abandoned the State Department's professional staff who have spent their lives serving the US diplomatic corps, especially as he begins hearings in the US House of Representatives over the removal of US President Donald Trump over allegations that he tried to blackmail Ukraine and link US aid to Kiev. The launch of Kiev investigations prove the involvement of former Vice President Joe Biden, Trump's strongest rival in the upcoming elections, corruption rampant in Ukraine.

With public hearings on the investigation into President Trump's dismissal coming into its second week, there is suspicion of complicity over US Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. These suspicions were highlighted during the testimony of US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sundland, who acknowledged that Trump ordered him to work with his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on his country's relations with Ukraine.

During his nearly eight-hour testimony (Wednesday, November 21, 2019), Sundeland confirmed that President Trump was pressuring Ukraine to investigate the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, who is running for the Republican Party against Trump.

Sundland revealed that Pompeo and Vice-President Pence were aware of the details of the relationship management with Ukraine. He repeatedly spoke with Secretary of State Pompeo, the National Security Council and other officials overseeing Washington's relationship with Kiev to coordinate and seek how On the concessions of the new Ukrainian President Vladimir Zielinski, as requested by President Trump.

The office of the foreign minister was quick on Wednesday to issue a statement denying his involvement in the case, and the vice president's office denied in a statement related to the request to investigate Hunter Biden's relationship with Borisma gas company or put any conditions on assistance to Ukraine.

Hunter joined Borisma's board for 50,000 dollars a month.

Pompeo is likely to leave the State Department by the end of this year, or at the end of January 2020, at most two months later, because of the limited time that any candidate usually needs to run in the Senate elections rarely.

Pompeo said on Monday that his country considers that Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank "do not violate international law," which is pushed by the missionary electoral base in his state of Kansas with great enthusiasm.
