Alright, alright… much like the Shepard Smith shenanigans, there’s still a lot more to develop on this.
Because THIS CAN’T BE IT. There’s gotta be more to it, I feel it in my bones!
“Energy Secretary Rick Perry sent a letter announcing his intended resignation to President Donald Trump on Thursday, amid reports of disagreement between the two over the ongoing Ukraine controversy and related impeachment efforts.”
Donald Trump stated that Rick Perry asked him to make the call to Ukrainian officials, so Perry has naturally become quite a major figure in this whole sh*t show.
“The resignation announcement comes as Perry has become a major figure in the narrative about President Trump’s outreach to the Ukrainian officials, which is the basis of the Democrats’ latest impeachment efforts. During a conference call with Capitol Hill Republicans earlier this month, Trump reportedly blamed Perry for the July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.”
Wait. Didn’t Perry said his position was “the coolest job in the world” in his farewell video message to the Department of Energy employees…? I can’t imagine the pay was anything short of lucrative. However, my type of “lucrative” is the ability to freely daydream while filling my gas tank.
“Not a lot of people know this but, I didn’t even want to make the call,” Trump said, according to an Axios report. “The only reason I made the call was because Rick asked me to. Something about an LNG [liquid natural gas] plant.”
A DOE spokesperson later said that “Secretary Perry absolutely supported and encouraged the president to speak to the new president of Ukraine to discuss matters related to their energy security and economic development” and that he “continues to believe that there is significant need for improved regional energy security.”
So what other role did Perry have in the midst of this matter, I wonder?
This makes me more nervous than walking through a balloon shop with a porcupine purse.
Like I mentioned above, there HAS to be more to this. Don’t worry though, you’ll be the first to know more details once we do! Who knows, maybe he found his true passion on Dancing With The Stars.
