Mike Pompeo -- whose naked presidential ambition led him to hold private dinners with potential donors and spent most of his tenure at the State Department building a donor list -- now wants us to believe Cassidy Hutchinson was making things up. Via the NYDaily News:

Mike Pompeo says he “never seriously” tried to use the 25th Amendment to remove former President Donald Trump from office after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

The ex-secretary of state sought to downplay — but pointedly did not deny — reports that he and other Cabinet members talked about ousting Trump for inciting the riot.

“They (Jan. 6 committee) were looking for discussions about the 25th Amendment, discussions that I never seriously undertook with my counterparts,” Pompeo said in an interview on Fox News late Thursday.

Did he say that under oath, or just for Fox TV?

Then he tried to make it look like the Jan. 6 committee had a specific agenda.

“It was they were looking to build a storyline the conclusion of which was already written,” Pompeo said.

“They were chasing witches, all right?” Pompeo said, “This was a far-afield, wandering interview.”

Just like Ron DeSantis, he's imitating Trump to try to get his voters. Witch hunt!

Meanwhile, Hutchinson testified that after the Jan. 6 attack, Pompeo and others called her and then-chief of staff Meadows to inform them that cabinet officials were considering invoking the 25th Amendment to remove former President Trump from office.

But now we know: THEY WERE JUST KIDDING! HA, HA!

Or is it that Pompeo, the man who denied being a "heat-seeking missile for Trump's ass," l, would rather protect The Democracy-Destroying Precious than risk his own campaign for president? Like he did with Trump's phone call to Zelenskyy?

Oh wait, he hasn't decided to run -- he's still "praying" on it! (Praying, in this case for a Trump implosion that will allow him to scrape up the remains.)

Can you help us out?
