Pompeo: Accusation work should stop while Trump is abroad

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized the House on Monday for scheduling political trial hearings while President Donald He is abroad. Pompeo said it is very unfortunate that the House Judiciary Committee holds its hearing on Wednesday at the same time that Trump represents the United States at the NATO summit in London this week. Pompeo told Fox&Friends that there is a long tradition of supporting a president when traveling abroad and that he should not be distracted by problems at home while discussing international issues with his allies. I regret that you have chosen to hold these hearings at the same time that the president and our entire national security team will travel to Europe, to London, to work on these important issues, said Pompeo. It is very unfortunate. Separately, Pompeo declined to say if he planned to resign as secretary of state to run for a Senate seat from Kansas.
