"What did President Trump say to you and Director Coats in that meeting?"

Pompeo refused to comment on the FBI investigation into Russian collusion in the United States elections but did say he believed there was interference from Moscow. Yet he dodged repeatedly when Democrats tried to pin him down on President Donald Trump's handling of the special investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Speaking during his confirmation hearing in Washington, Pompeo said the casualties came during strikes on forces loyal to Syria's President Bashar al_Assad in February.

Mike Pompeo, the Central Intelligence Agency director nominated to be secretary of state, defended the Trump administration's efforts to push back on aggression from Russian Federation at his confirmation hearing Thursday while suggesting more sanctions on Moscow are still needed.

Booker continued to grill Pompeo on this point, but the secretary of state nominee refused to answer.

"I just need to look at that and frankly turn to the professionals at the State Department to give me guidance", he added.

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., took Pompeo to task over for saying previously that Muslims have a special obligation to denounce extremism and for his longstanding position that gays should not be able to marry.

Mike Pompeo stated during his Senate confirmation hearing on Thursday that President Trump has never asked him to do anything he considered "remotely improper". President Trump nominated Pompeo to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State.

"If there's no chance that we can fix it, I will recommend to the president that we work with our allies to achieve a better outcome and to achieve a better deal", Pompeo said. Still, although Trump has announced the U.S.is pulling out of the Paris global climate agreement, Pompeo said the State Department should be involved in global efforts to address global warming.

It has become apparent that, while an American citizen can (for now) hold that belief in Jesus Christ is the only path to salvation, or that same-sex "marriage" is perversion, there is a troubling pattern emerging that an increasing number of persons think those views automatically disqualify the person who holds such views form serving in government, at any level.
