Pompeo: US airstrikes in February killed 'a couple hundred Russians'

Pompeo: US airstrikes in February killed 'a couple hundred Russians'

If confirmed, Pompeo will replace Rex Tillerson, who was sacked by Trump in March.

In a special second segment Anoa Changa, lawyer and host of "The Way with Anoa" joins the show to talk about Donald Trump's "Economic Mobility Reforms" executive order which supposedly "Will Restore Independence and Dignity to Millions of Americans", the inability of Trump to understand the complexities of poverty, and the fallacy that reaching the "middle class" will help people lead meaningful and just lives.

Citing a recent article published in the New York Times in which Dr. Lock K. Johnson, a Regents Professor at the University of Georgia, claimed the Central Intelligence Agency had interfered in foreign elections since its creation in 1947, it said, "There are documented facts of USA meddling in elections of Albania, Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, U.K., Haiti, Guyana, Guatemala, Greece, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Iceland, Iran, Costa Rica, Cambodia, Laos, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritius, Malta, Nepal, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Somalia, Thailand, Ukraine, Uruguay, Chile, Sri Lanka and Jamaica".

The New Jersey senator started off his questioning at Pompeo's Senate confirmation hearing gently enough, asking about his previous comments disparaging religions other than his own.

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. Pompeo defended his record, promising he will treat people of all faiths "with the dignity and respect that they deserve".

"I continue to hold that view", Pompeo said of gay marriage, though he declined repeatedly to answer whether he believes gay sex is a "perversion".

TMZ: Will Ferrell released from hospital following serious auto accident in California
The publication reports the crash happened on Interstate 5 in Orange County , California around 11 pm local time on Thursday. Richard Peacock told Deadline that Ferrell's SUV was driving in the HOV lane when the Toyota attempted to get in.

He sought to pre-empt concerns about Trump's apparent unwillingness to challenge Russian President Vladimir Putin directly.

He also vowed to continue "to take real actions to push back, to reset the deterrence relationship with respect to Russian Federation".

If confirmed by the Senate, Pompeo said he would bolster the Iran nuclear deal, adding that fixing the 2015 agreement is in the US' best interest. Still, he affirmed that he won't support staying in over the long term unless more restrictions are placed on Tehran. "This fact is recognized by experts and former USA intelligence operatives".

He also emphasized that a US attack on Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical attack on rebels near Damascus can come at any time. He developed a visibly close relationship with the president, traveling to the White House on most days to deliver the classified President's Daily Brief in person rather than leaving the task to other intelligence officials.

Trump posted other tweets on a variety of topics on Thursday as well.
