Pompeo Flips Out And Accuses Reporter Of Working For Dems After Asking Him About Ukraine Texts
Donald Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was confronted by CNN’s Frederika Whitfield during an interview where he refused multiple times to answer whether he was working with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani during a trip to Warsaw.
In the clip, courtesy of WSMV in Nashville, Pompeo failed to answer questions about his dealings with Giuliani, who is now the subject of a federal criminal investigation.
With reporter Nancy Amons asking, “Text messages show that diplomats under your authority told the Ukranians that a good relationship with President Trump was only possible if they investigated his political opponent and theories about what happened in 2016. Were you aware that this was happening?” Pompeo pushed back.
He went on to accuse Whitfield of working for Democrats.
“You know, again, you’ve got your facts wrong,” he parried before adding, “Sounds like you’re working at least in part for the Democratic National Committee when you phrase that predicate of a question in that way. ”
“It’s unfortunate and it does a disservice to the employees and team at the United States Department of State,” he continued as he deflected. “The team was incredibly focused, wanted a good relationship with Ukraine.”
