CBS News reports:
Addressing reporters in Rome during an overseas visit, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed that he was on the July call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelesnky.
“I was on the phone call,” he told the press. “I know precisely what the American policy has been with respect to Ukraine. It’s been remarkably consistent, and we will continue to drive those sets of outcomes,” he added.
The secretary neglected to answer questions on whether or not he had heard anything on the call that had raised any red flags, but said the call was about helping Ukraine get corruption of their government and “taking down the threat that Russia poses to Ukraine.”
