Senator Cory Booker Grilled Mike Pompeo on His Anti-LGBTQ Views

CIA Director Mike Pompeo has overseen U.S. intelligence collection in Yemen in a campaign closely intertwined with the U Lawmakers to Hear From Pompeo, Mattis in Midst of Syria Crisis

Pompeo's nomination faces stiff opposition from a handful of Republicans and many Democrats as well as supporters of the Iran nuclear deal, environmentalists and minority rights groups, and his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee appeared created to blunt their criticism. "I cooperated with multiple investigations". But he ducked and dodged when asked whether he supports President Donald Trump's pounding criticism of the federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Pompeo equivocated when asked whether or not he still thought gay sex was a perversion. "I just need to look at that and frankly turn to the professionals at the State Department to give me guidance.", Pompeo said.

Pompeo, now chief of the Central Intelligence Agency, has been nominated by U.S. President Donald Trump to replace Rex Tillerson, who was sacked by Trump from the post last month.

"He has never asked me to do anything remotely that I consider improper", Pompeo added. When Menendez continued to press on whether Trump had discussed the Russian Federation probes with him, Pompeo answered: "I spoke with Special Counsel Mueller".

"Senator, again I'm not going to talk about private conversations I've had with the president", Pompeo said.

Pompeo was asked later whether he'd resign if Trump fired Mueller. "My instincts tell me my obligation to continue to serve as America's senior diplomat will be more important in times of domestic political turmoil".
