  • Mike Pompeo 'Regularly' Used Personal Email While Director of CIA

    https://www.newsweek.com/watchdog-re...or-cia-1541163

    A watchdog report published on Wednesday said Mike Pompeo frequently used his personal email account while exchanging messages as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

    The report by American Oversight, a nonprofit ethics watchdog group based in Washington, D.C., said that while it recently had an opportunity to review about 400 pages of personal emails that Pompeo sent while he was serving as the CIA's director in 2017 and 2018, its litigation efforts so far have not succeeded in gaining access to more recent emails he sent while in his current role as secretary of state.

    According to the report, Pompeo "appears to have regularly received official schedules at his personal email account" while at the CIA.

    "This extensive use of personal email for agency business raises questions about what other activities Pompeo conducted over personal email, including at the State Department—and about whether efforts need to be undertaken to preserve government records in personal accounts," the report said.

    If he conducted official business on his personal email, then yes, there should be consequences. He compromised US security.

      Seems like whenever Republicans accuse Dems of anything, it's always projection.

          If that's what time it is, then "wake me up when those emails reach 22 million".

          Your use of Russian propaganda techniques aside, do you think Pompeo did anything wrong?

            Oh, I'm using the patented Democrat defense, not Russian Propoganda. You know, the one where someone points something out, and it's handwaved away (often by someone named whateverman) because they point at trump and say he's worse.

            So, Until pompeo reache's hillary's level, this can be safely ignored, using notasbadism.

              You're a hypocrite.

                Well it begs the question of why is it all of a sudden wrong when a Republican does it after the Democrats excused Killary when she did it? And also she sent classified information via her personal email server. Did Pompeo send classified information?

                  Are you going to condemn Pompeo's actions? Or take the same line as the Democrats you criticise?

                    But wait - what if that statement is a projection? Perhaps you're projecting about projecting.

                      Why do you laymen think this is an issue? He sent and received schedules. That's all that is provided. Official schedules aren't classified. Heck, any of you clowns can request the official schedule of ANY government official with a FOIA request. There is nothing wrong with receiving schedules on your personal email as long as you are copied on your official email as well, or you provide access to those records if they aren't. Nothing in this latest fake "bombshell" says anything about whether or not those records were cc'd to the official account, so this is a fine example of ignorant outrage porn.

                        That's not how this works, brother. You can conduct UNCLASSIFIED official business. You may not create or send official records using a non-official electronic message account unless you cc an official account or forward it to an official account “not later than 20 days” after it was created.

                            Hillary sent CLASSIFIED information through a non-classified personal server. HUGE difference. One's legal, the other isn't.
