Booker Challenges Pompeo On View That Homosexuality Is 'Perversion'

In declining to discuss his conversations with the president, Pompeo clarified that he wasn't asserting executive privilege. Pompeo suggested he did not share all the president's views - including his skepticism about Russia's interference.

Booker raised a troubling statement that Pompeo once made as a congressman in which he called homosexuality "perversion" during a speech he made as a congressman. The CIA chief told senators that he has been miscast as a "hawk" despite previous comments savaging the Iran accord and hinting at regime change in North Korea.

"I think it's important as much as America has done for quite some time". Now the duties of the Secretary of state takes the first Deputy head of the diplomatic Department John Sullivan. Do you believe that gay sex is a perversion?'

Did Tristan Thompson cheat on Khloé Kardashian?
Khloé Kardashian's best friend Khadijah Haqq has spoken. "God bless you and your baby", she finished, ending with a heart emoji. The couple celebrated Halloween dressed as superhero couple Storm and Black Panther. "She's seen all of us go through it".

In addition to homosexuality, Booker also grilled Pompeo on his perspective of Muslim Americans.

Menendez asked Pompeo about a Washington Post story from a year ago claiming Mr. Trump wanted his top officials to intervene, during a conversation about Russian Federation and the FBI's investigation. Pompeo said that his record at the Central Intelligence Agency and elsewhere proves he treats everyone equally and with respect, regardless of religion, gender or sexual orientation. Pompeo suggests the USA needs to impose more sanctions on Russian Federation.

"I'm not going to talk about conversations the president and I had", Pompeo replied, adding that Trump should be able to have private conversations with his top aides.
