Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was asked to defend State Department employees who are cooperating with the impeachment inquiry during a press conference but he refused to talk about the subject.

“Issues surrounding the Democrat [sic] impeachment inquiry — just not going to do it today,” Pompeo said before attacking Democrats over the testimony of Bill Taylor, the acting United States ambassador to Ukraine.

“Ambassador [Marie Yovanovitch’s] departure preceded the arrival of Bill Taylor!” he exclaimed, laughing to himself. “Some ideas out there that [Yovanovitch’s removal] was to enable some nefarious purpose, you should all just look at the simple fact that it was Bill Taylor that replaced Ambassador Yovanovitch.”

The secretary added: “I’m proud of what this administration has done with respect to Ukraine. We reversed the massive failures of the Obama administration.”
