Congratulations to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, who just agreed to adhere to a cease fire effective at midnight. Many lives will be saved. Proud of my team @SecPompeo  & Steve Biegun & @WHNSC  for getting the deal done!

Smart move by @SecPompeo  to send @StateDept  steve biegun'>Dep Secy Steve Biegun to Europe/Russia to discuss #Belarus . Biegun knows Russia, well respected in Europe, and used to work for @IRIglobal . "No. 2 U.S. diplomat to visit Russia, Lithuania to discuss Belarus"

6/Now this is where I think it gets extra weird. A third letter is in the batch. This one from Deputy Secretary of State Steve Biegun to Engel. So far, Biegun – who has a good rep among Dems & GOP – has largely avoided getting dragged into this. But no more…

@SecPompeo +Dep Sec Biegun go after @HFAC Democrats@repeliotengel '>Chai @RepEliotEngel  and staff over Steve Linick. Letters insist nobody--including top aide/old friend Undersecretary Bulato--briefed Pompeo on investigations; troll Engel on reelection; highlight items "Democrats won't tell you"
