"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies." -- William J. Donovan
"However, the Department worked with him to find a suitable temporary assignment and succeeded,Ē he said. ďMr. Hicks still receives the same salary and has the same employment status and rank as before. Per standard procedure, Mr. Hicks recently submitted a preference list for his next assignment and is under consideration along with other Foreign Service employees.Ē
And then I pointed out that since Hicks had never said he was lowered by paygrade, but only demoted by billet (which requires no paperwork) then this claim by yours that he was lying was either A) uninformed (which, given how you identify yourself, is unlikely) or B) a deliberate lie in the form of a strawman smear on Hicks in an attempt to discredit him.
As I recall, I asked you to explain which one it was, and you never responded. Huh. Wonder why that is....
ďIf we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.Ē
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
