Pompeo Advisor Who Recently Resigned Just Agreed To Testify As Part Of Impeachment Investigation


Politico’s Andrew Desiderio broke the news on Monday revealing that Michael McKinley, a former ambassador to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, agreed to testify before House Democrats in a closed-door hearing as part of the impeachment investigation against Donald Trump.

Desiderio wrote on Twitter:

“NEWS: Former Pompeo adviser Michael McKinley, who resigned last week, will testify in closed session on Wednesday before House impeachment investigators, according to an official working on the inquiry.”

McKinley, a senior diplomat who has served as the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Colombia, and Peru, left his post last week amid rising frustration among State Department officials about Pompeo’s lack of effort to help people caught up in the Ukraine scandal.

Pompeo has been indicated in the Ukraine scandal after it was reported that he was listening in on the call between Trump and the Ukrainian government.
