Secretary of State Mike Pompeo abruptly ended an NPR interview when he refused to answer questions from Mary Louise Kelly about whether he owed former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch an apology.
“Immediately after the questions on Ukraine, the interview concluded. Pompeo stood, leaned in and silently glared at Kelly for a period of several seconds before leaving the room.”
“A few moments later, an aide asked Kelly to follow her into Pompeo’s private living room at the State Department without a recorder. The aide did not say the ensuing exchange would be off the record.”
“Inside the room, Pompeo shouted his displeasure at being questioned about Ukraine. He used repeated expletives, according to Kelly, and asked, ‘Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?’ He then said, ‘People will hear about this.'”Save to Favorites
