No, Mike Pompeo never plotted to remove the president from power. And if any members of the White House cabinet had hushed conversations about that possibility after Jan. 6, 2021, when a mob paralyzed Congress for an afternoon, the former secretary of state didn’t know about it.

He wouldn’t leave his post early, and he wouldn’t try to push former President Trump from his. That is, at least, according to Pompeo. He says the thought never crossed his mind.
