The reporter, "All Things Considered" co-host Mary Louise Kelly, interviewed Pompeo on Friday amid Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate, which centers around the president's dealings with Ukraine.

The reporter, "All Things Considered" co-host Mary Louise Kelly, interviewed Pompeo on Friday amid President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate, which centers around the president's dealings with Ukraine. But Pompeo declined to answer multiple questions from Kelly about Ukraine, saying he had only agreed to discuss the administration's policies with regard to Iran. Kelly disputed that those were the terms of the interview. NPR reported that "immediately after the questions on Ukraine, the interview concluded. Pompeo stood, leaned in and silently glared at Kelly for a period of several seconds before leaving the room." An aide to the Cabinet official asked Kelly to follow Pompeo to his living quarters at the State Department without a recording device, but did not specify that the ensuing exchange would be off the record, according to NPR. Mary Louise Kelly accepts the award for best reporter/correspondent/host - non-commercial for "All Things Considered" on "NPR News" at the 43rd annual Gracie Awards at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif. Richard Shotwell | Invision | AP "Inside the room, Pompeo shouted his displeasure at being questioned about Ukraine," NPR reported. "He used repeated expletives, according to Kelly, and asked, 'Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?'" On a radio program for NPR that aired Friday, Kelly provided more details about her unrecorded exchange with Pompeo. "I was taken to the Secretary's private living room, where he was waiting, and where he shouted at me for about the same amount of time as the interview itself had lasted," Kelly said. "He used the F word in that sentence, and many others. He asked if I could find Ukraine on a map I said yes. He called out for his aides to bring him a map of the world with no writing, no countries marked," Kelly said. "I pointed to Ukraine," she said. "He put the map away. He said, 'People will hear about this,' and then he turned and said he had things to do, and I thanked him again for his time and left." Neither the White House nor the State Department immediately responded to CNBC's requests for comment on NPR's report. Kelly did not immediately respond to a LinkedIn message asking for further details. Pompeo on Friday tweeted his plans to travel to Ukraine. Yovanovitch's ouster has at times taken center stage in Trump's impeachment proceedings. The House voted to impeach Trump on Dec. 18 on articles of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, both related to his efforts to have Ukraine announce probes into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, and a debunked conspiracy theory about the 2016 presidential election. Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, with help from associates including Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, had allegedly sought for Yovanovitch's removal in order to clear the way for Ukraine to announce the probes that involved Trump's political rivals. Yovanovitch was removed from her post in Kyiv in the spring of 2019. She testified before the House in November as part of its impeachment inquiry that she felt threatened by Trump and his allies, who had disparaged her even after she was removed from her post. Yovanovitch said that corrupt Ukrainian officials and Trump associates, including Giuliani, had orchestrated a "smear campaign" against her. Earlier Friday, of Trump, at an April 2018 gathering with Fruman and Parnas, demanding that Yovanovitch be fired. A Read more: CNBC

Mary Louise Kelly: Asks question about Ukraine Pompeo: Americans don't care about Ukraine! I bet you can't even point it out on a map. Aide: Brings out map. Mary Louise Kelly: Points it out on the map. Pompeo: Tub-O-Lard Good.

Pompeo says real reform key to international aid for LebanonU.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday only a Lebanese government... He looks like an auctioneer the way he is talking out of the side of his mouth. Pompeo is dirty. Nothing he says has any weight. He lies. More of schizophrenic US foreign policy. We don’t want to be involved with the Middle East yet can’t keep out of interfering with it.

Another example of a news reporter making themselves the news. Ambassador is not a permanent position. Trump like any President has the right to appoint anyone he wants to a position of Ambassador. So what is the problem with appointing a new Ambassador to Ukraine? Gods speaks in tongues. who knew? oh wait,

I would've loved to seen SecPompeo's face when Mary Louise Kelly pointed to Ukraine on the map.... ... Pompeo's legacy is already etched in stone & it is two words....⬇️ NPR NPRKelly StateDept What a good Christian man... and a perfect example of tea party/freedom caucus fraudulence. Typical reaction of a jerk when his lack of ethics are exposed.

Pompeo was right in one thing- people will hear about it. MaryLouiseKelly
