The decision was made due to “Michael Pompeo’s inability to protect employees associated with the case in Ukraine,” the newspaper said.
A senior adviser to the Secretary of state, Michael McKinley, resigned due to “Michael Pompeo’s failure to protect employees related to the case in Ukraine.” On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported.
According to her, McKinley was disappointed by the lack of support from the Secretary of state of those diplomats who were associated with the case of alleged pressure on the Ukrainian authorities from the United States and were called to testify in the impeachment proceedings against us President Donald Trump. McKinley was particularly concerned about the resignation of the US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch after being accused by the media of her disloyalty to the government. Trump’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani then said that the American leader asked Pompeo to fire her.
Michael McKinley was not directly linked to the subpoena in Ukraine. At various times, he was US Ambassador to Afghanistan, Colombia, Peru, and Brazil. Recently, he has been closely involved in international relations with Venezuela, Mexico, and Afghanistan.
