Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.

The State Department’s inspector general’s office reports that Mike Pompeo (and his wife, Susan) regularly violated federal ethics rules while he served as Trump’s Secretary of State.

According to the report, the Pompeos assigned State Department employees to tasks that benefited them personally more than 100 times. Government employees spent a significant amount of taxpayer-funded time doing the family’s bidding. At no point did the family compensate employees for the non-government work.

By digging through emails and other documents and interviewing staff members, investigators uncovered scores of instances in which Mike or Susan Pompeo asked State Department staffers to handle tasks of a personal nature, from booking salon appointments and private dinner reservations to picking up their dog and arranging tours for the Pompeos’ political allies. Employees told investigators that they viewed the requests from Susan Pompeo, who was not on the federal payroll, as being backed by the secretary.

Toni Porter, a senior adviser to Sec. Pompeo, received personal tasks from Susan Pompeo almost every single day that she was at work. She was given the impression that acting as an assistant to Mrs. Pompeo was part of her job.
