Russian Federation investigator Mueller interviewed Central Intelligence Agency chief

Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

In a letter sent to the committee on Monday, ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt called on Pompeo to repudiate some of his views.

Pompeo, who now serves as Central Intelligence Agency director, responded: "Senator, each and every human - not just Americans - each and every human being has an obligation to push back against the extremist use of violence, from whatever faith". Booker asked Pompeo, formerly a Republican representative from Kansas.

"For certain places, for certain forms of violence, there are some who are better positioned - folks who are more credible, more trustworthy, have a more shared experience - and so when it comes to making sure that we don't have a terrorist brewing in places where Muslims congregate, there's a special place - they have an opportunity, it's more than a duty, it's an opportunity", Pompeo said.

U.S. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who chairs the committee, on Thursday said he "avidly" supports Pompeo's nomination.

Questioned by the committee's top Democrat, Pompeo also said publicly for the first time that he's been questioned by Mueller, who is investigating potential ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as possible obstruction of justice issues. Yesterday, he tweeted "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been; there's no reason for this".

Pompeo has historically had some choice words for Russian Federation, which continues to meddle in US politics even now.

Code Pink protesters interrupted the hearing, denouncing what they said was Mr. Pompeo's support for war.

During an appearance at the Aspen Security Conference in July 2017 however, Pompeo told an audience that while it would be "a great thing to denuclearize the peninsula", the US should seek to break "every piece" of the North Korean problem.

While Pompeo said he is hopeful for a positive diplomatic outcome in regard to the full denuclearization of the DPRK, he also said "the historic analysis is not optimistic".

In fact, Madison wrote very specifically, he said, the the Executive branch is the branch most prone to war, therefore, we have with studied care vested that authority in the legislature.

In one point of divergence from Trump, he said he disagreed with a Thursday morning tweet from the president that blamed the Mueller investigation for bad relations with Moscow.

If confirmed, Pompeo would be the Trump administration's second secretary of state in 14 months. Pompeo responded that he thought Trump's course of action there has been the right one - that the US has the goal of leaving but can't do so until there is more stability in the country.

Pompeo faces a tough confirmation vote with Republicans having only a 50-49 majority in the absence of Sen.

Asked about climate change in a 2013 interview, he said, "I think the science needs to continue to develop...there are scientists who think lots of different things about climate change", he said.

"Our administration has developed a strategy to counter Iran that will raise that cost", he said.

Last year, The Washington Post reported that in a March 2017 White House meeting, Trump asked Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to try to get the FBI to back off of an investigation into Trump's former national security advisor Mike Flynn. Pompeo declined to provide any details about his advice.

Pompeo was responding to a line of questioning by Sen. "He wants fewer American citizens in Syria".
