Further effects of Donny's corrosive tenure. How long will it take our institutions to recover from having such an imbecile as president?

More to come, I'm sure.

A deep swamper leaves one part of the swamp Trump's deepened

"leaving the Department to pursue other opportunities, wherever they may lead."

to move to another part? Perhaps to join deep swampers like Kelly, Mattis and others who left Trump's area of the swamp to move to one nearby.

Drain the swamp! Start first with those Trump's added. Especially those who aid and abet his corruption, and who are doing dirty work for him to fuhrer undermine the republic and fuhrer divide the population.

"I protect every single State Department employee," Pompeo said. "When the State Department employees are doing things right, when they’re behaving in ways that are consistent with the rule of law and working on President Trump’s and America’s mission, I’ll always stand with them; I’ll always have their back."

I think this needs a slight re-wording...

"I protect every single crooked crony in the Trump administration," Pompeo said. "When the Trump administration's employees are doing things wrong, when they’re behaving in ways that are inconsistent with the rule of law and protecting President Trump even when he commits a crime or violates the constitution, I’ll always stand with Trump; I’ll always have his back. Well, until I get thrown under the bus".....

It’s a pity that we’re losing someone like McKinley. He has a stellar reputation within the service as a professional, straight arrow and a good person.

Not sure on what basis anyone would call McKinley a “deep swamper”?

Its like amb. Yovanovitch said, the service is being hollowed out. We’re losing good people.

...or like he said, he worked enough and wanted to spend more time with his family.

You can’t prove that. Even Mueller couldn’t.

But we can because its an historical fact that wanting to spend more time with their family is a backdoor exit for deeper more disturbing reasons just like the previous press secretary resigning. The generals resigning. People have serious issues and fears with your boss Trump.

Trump's fourth homeland security head in four years also just resigned.

Weak leadership is unable to keep strong staff. It's a fact.

when they’re behaving in ways that are consistent with the rule of law and working on President Trump’s and America’s mission, I’ll always stand with them; 

Rule of law and Trump’s mission are mutually incompatible. Pompeo may keep his own snout clean, but he’ll choose Trump over moral conviction any day.
