The ignorant warmonger masquerading as an American Secretary of State should be arrested for his impersonation of an American government official. Mike Pompeo cannot possibly be the US Secretary of State, because not even Donald Trump would appoint an idiot to this high position who thinks that Article 2 of the Constitution gives the president the authority to declare war and invade other countries.
Here is what the moronic imposter Pompeo said: “The president has his full range of Article 2 authorities and I’m very confident that any action we took in Venezuela would be lawful.” This was Pompeo’s answer when asked if President Trump could intervene in the country’s power struggle without congressional approval. https://www.rt.com/usa/458433-venezuela-military-invasion-lawful-pompeo/ Of course, it is not “the country’s power struggle.” It is Washington’s effort to overthrow the Bolivarian Revolution and regain control over Venezuela’s resources.
