Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said he's "proud of the team" at the State Department even as he refused to discuss the ouster of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and the department employees who defied his orders by testifying in the impeachment investigation.
"I always defend State Department employees," Pompeo said in a press briefing at the department on Monday. But he refused to answer substantive questions about the ouster of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was recalled from Kyiv at Trumps demand as the president pressed Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and other Democrats.
