Pompeo cancels last foreign trip amid Trump impeachment moves

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday cancels his final foreign trip scheduled this week as President Donald Trump faces a second impeachment vote.

Pompeo will no longer travel to Belgium on Wednesday, and will stay in the US to assist “a smooth and orderly transition process,” State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus says.
