Group of State Department Officials Call for Consultations on Trump’s Removal

Second dissent cable directed at Pompeo also rebukes the secretary of state for not forcefully condemning the president.

The cable rebuked Pompeo for his “failure to issue a statement unequivocally acknowledging that President-Elect Biden won the 2020 election” and protested the “President’s incitement of insurrectionist violence against the United States.” Foreign Policy could not independently corroborate the number of officials who signed the cable, but one of the officials who signed it, speaking on condition of anonymity, said around 175 State Department officials, primarily lawyers, had signed on.
