Mike Pompeo Blows Up at NPR Reporter: ‘Do You Think Americans Care About Ukraine?’

Mike Pompeo Blows Up at NPR Reporter: ‘Do You Think Americans Care About Ukraine?’Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly cursed and shouted at an NPR reporter after she repeatedly confronted him about his handling of the politically charged ouster of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. According to a transcript of the interview between NPR host Mary Louise Kelly and Pompeo, he repeatedly dodged questions on Ukraine and grew increasingly irate after Kelly asked, “Do you owe Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch an apology?” “You know, I agreed to come on your show today to talk about Iran,” Pompeo said before going on to insist, “I  just don’t have anything else to say about that this morning.” When Kelly kept grilling him and noted that some within the State Department had criticized his failure to stand up for Yovanovitch after she was fired amid what she described as a smear campaign orchestrated by President Trump, Pompeo sought to dismiss the criticism as being from “unnamed sources.” But Kelly stopped him: “These are not unnamed sources. This is your senior adviser Michael McKinley, a career foreign service officer with four decades experience,” she said, reminding Pompeo that McKinley had testified on the matter under oath. Declining to comment on McKinley, Pompeo insisted, “I have defended every State Department official,” only to end the interview when Kelly asked him to refer her to any comments he’d made in defense of Yovanovitch. According to NPR, things grew even more heated after the interview had concluded, when Pompeo is said to have “silently glared” at Kelly before leaving the room. She was then reportedly asked to follow him without her recorder, but without any agreement that the following conversation would be off the record. At that point, Pompeo reportedly challenged Kelly to find Ukraine on an unmarked map and asked, “Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?” He reportedly wrapped up the meeting by declaring that “people will hear about this.” Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

McConnell Dismisses Dem Claim That He’s Uniquely Biased: ‘You Think Chuck Schumer Is Impartial?’

McConnell Dismisses Dem Claim That He’s Uniquely Biased: ‘You Think Chuck Schumer Is Impartial?’Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday mocked Democrats' call for an impeachment trial untainted by political bias, arguing that the process is fundamentally political and called any suggestion to the contrary a "charade.""Do you think Chuck Schumer is impartial? Do you think Elizabeth Warren is impartial? Bernie Sanders is impartial? So let’s quit the charade. This is a political exercise," McConnell said Monday morning on Fox News in response to Democratic leaders' claim that his loyalty to the president will prevent him from conducting a "fair" trial.The House voted on Wednesday to approve two articles of impeachment against the president, voting 230 to 197 to charge Trump with abuse of power and 229 to 198 to charge him with obstruction of Congress.Since then, however, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has delayed sending the approved articles over to the Senate until Democrats receive assurances that the Republican-controlled Senate will conduct a "fair" trial, a decision McConnell called "absurd."“So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us,” Pelosi said Wednesday.McConnell said that "all I’m asking" of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is that the Senate treat Trump "the same way" it treated President Bill Clinton during his impeachment.The Kentucky Republican noted that Schumer voted for the rules governing the impeachment trial in the Senate, "to go through the opening arguments, to have a written question period, and then, based upon that, deciding what witnesses to call.""We haven’t ruled out witnesses. We’ve said let’s handle this case just like we did with President Clinton. Fair is fair," McConnell said.The Senate leader said he also spoke personally to Schumer before lawmakers left town for the holidays, but the two remain at an "impasse.""We can’t do anything until the speaker sends the papers over, so everybody enjoy the holidays," McConnell said.McConnell, who is up for reelection next year, is under pressure from both Democrats and the White House, both of whom want to call witnesses during the Senate trial that McConnell is likely to block.“The American people, if they think this is a very significant episode, can take it into account we’re voting [next] year," McConnell said. "Most people that I run into, whether they are fans of the president or not, say, ‘Well, why don’t you just let us decide this. We’re in the middle of the election.’”
