    Mike Pompeo at it again...

    Just when media is about to let go off Russia hoax ('obstruction of justice' issues may liner on though), here we go again:

    Pompeo warns Russia about election interference as he seeks more 'successful' relationship
    Tue May 14, 201

    "Interference in American elections is unacceptable"

    Despite the optimistic remarks, Pompeo had earlier issued a warning about one of the most damning issues between the US and Russia -- Russian election interference. Pompeo noted that the US would not accept meddling in future elections -- a markedly tougher stance than Trump has taken.
    "I made clear to Foreign Minister (Sergey) Lavrov, as we've made clear for the past months, that interference in American elections is unacceptable," Pompeo said Tuesday in a joint press avail with the Russian foreign minister.
    "If the Russians were engaged in that in 2020, it would put our relationship in an even worse place than it has been, and I encouraged them not to do that, that we would not tolerate that," Pompeo continued. "We've said this not only about the Russians but about other countries as well. Our elections are important and sacred and they must be kept free and fair and with no outside country interfering in those elections."

    To give credit where due, there is also constructive diplomacy taking place between Pompeo and Putin:

    Taliban Overrun District Center in South Afghanistan

    The Taliban captured a district center Wednesday in southern Afghanistan, killing at least 13 government soldiers. The fighting comes as Russia asserted the Taliban is getting stronger and called for increased efforts to reach a negotiated settlement to the 17-year-old war.

    Local officials and insurgent sources reported Taliban fighters assaulted Shamulzayi in Zabul province before dawn, forcing Afghan security forces out of the district center and also overrunning the regional office of the government intelligence agency, NDS.

    Russia: Taliban 'getting stronger'

    Washington has engaged the Taliban in direct peace negotiations in a bid to persuade insurgents to participate in an intra-Afghan dialogue process to end years of hostilities in the country. The dialogue has not achieved any significant breakthrough, however, nearly a year after it started, nor has the Taliban responded positively to cease-fire appeals by Afghan and international stakeholders.

    The latest insurgent battlefield advances come a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin said the Taliban were gaining strength, although he acknowledged finding a negotiated settlement to the Afghan was “rather a complicated issue” and a difficult task.
    “At the same time, the positions of the Taliban are getting stronger. So we need to step up cooperation and try to achieve the balance of power in this country,” Putin said in a meeting with visiting U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, according to the Russian media.
