Mike Pompeo just claimed: "I fought on the border of East Germany."— Julian Borger (@julianborger) July 30, 2020

I saw this first. I figured it was at a press conference, an off-the-cuff remark that was a casual piece of incoherence. Not comforting in the chief diplomat of the United States, but not that bad.

This is not a brain fart:
This is *not* a dodge. It's an erroneous, authoritarian answer. Neither the Department of Justice nor "others" make the "legal" determination of if the Presidential election is delayed.

No, they won't. They don't have that authority, as even AG Barr knows.
This would sound so much better with some Dr. Seuss rhymes. But it would still be as nonsensical.
