Keith Ellison Claims North Korean Leader Is 'More Responsible' Than Trump

" "But make no mistake about it, the continuation, the increased chance that there will be a nuclear missile in Denver is a very serious threat, and the investigation is going to treat it as such". And so what we can no longer do is afford to procrastinate.

Trump issued a series of mounting threats toward North Korea last week in response to further belligerent behavior from the rogue nuclear state.

White House officials have insisted the investigation is not created to apply additional pressure on China as it relates to North Korea despite the president's previous remarks that he would be more amenable on trade if China stopped Pyongyang's nuclear program.

Still, he said the USA is edging closer to war with Kim because of his nuclear provocations. "But we are closer to war than we were a decade ago". "And, as Dr. [Henry] Kissinger made clear in a great op-ed this weekend, this has been a problem that we have procrastinated on for a long period of time, and now it's coming to a head". So, either North Korea is being elevated up to the level of the United States, or the United States is being dragged down to the level of North Korea. And there will be no call for him to apologize or step down because no one in the Democratic Party or within their propaganda apparatus (also known as the mainstream media) thinks he said anything wrong here.

"There's nothing imminent today", he said on "Fox News Sunday".

"No, she's not right, and I think the reason she's not right is that the classical deterrence theory, how does that apply to a regime like the regime in North Korea?".

"What I'm talking about is I've heard folks talking about being on the cusp of a nuclear war", he clarified.

Pompeo also defended Trump's "fire and fury" comment.

"Trump spent this week ratcheting up the rhetoric even as his own cabinet tried to take it down. What we need is someone bringing calm to the situation, not spiking it".

"The United States military is locked and loaded every day, and especially those who are on the front lines of freedom, such as those that are stationed in South Korea and those soldier, sailors, airmen, and Marines that are stationed in northeast Asia or rotate there", he said.

The CIA and other top intelligence agencies have agreed that North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear weapon to place on a ballistic missile.
