Don't Know Him, I Don't Know Anything, I Never Heard His Name, But I Just Don't Know Who He Is Really

explain sir why you decided to fire the
00:02
inspector general at the state
00:03
department
00:04
yeah i don't know him at all i never
00:07
even heard of him
00:08
but i was asked to by the state
00:10
department by mike
00:12
i offered most of my people almost all
00:15
of them i said you know these are obama
00:16
appointees and
00:18
if you'd like to let him go i think you
00:19
should let him go but that's up to you
00:21
so i don't know him
00:23
never heard of him but they asked me to
00:25
terminate him i have the absolute right
00:27
as president to terminate uh
00:30
i said who appointed him and they said
00:32
president obama i said look i'll
00:34
terminate him
00:35
uh i don't know what's going on other
00:36
than that but you'd have to ask mike
00:38
pompeo
00:39
i would have suggested and i did suggest
00:41
in pretty much all cases you
00:43
get rid of the attorney generals because
00:44
it happens to be very political whether
00:46
you like it or not
00:48
and many of these people were obama
00:50
appointments
00:51
and so i just
00:54
got rid of them and you've got some
00:56
criticism from democrats in congress who
00:58
are saying this is a
00:59
pattern of you trying to avoid having
01:03
accountability
01:04
and if i didn't fire them they would
01:05
have criticized me too they'd criticize
01:07
no matter what you do
01:08
you know if you have too many
01:09
ventilators they'll say gee he has too
01:11
many ventilators
01:12
but i just don't know who he is i really
01:15
i don't know never heard his name
01:16
you believe he said you don't know him
01:18
sir what was he doing that was treating
01:20
you unfairly
01:21
i don't know i don't know anything about
01:22
him i don't know i don't know anything
01:24
about him other than
01:26
the state department and mike in
01:27
particular i guess they weren't happy
01:29
with the job he's doing or something so
01:31
because it's my right to do it i said
01:33
sure i'll do it i've
01:34
gotten rid of a lot of inspector
01:36
generals every president has i think
01:38
every president has gotten rid of
01:40
probably more than
01:41
i have secretary pompeo was reportedly
01:44
under investigation both for
01:46
having staffers do personal errands like
01:48
walking his dog and
01:49
picking up his dry cleaning and concerns
01:52
that he may have subverted the will
01:54
of congress with saudi uh
01:57
deals with saudi arms deals uh
02:00
are you concerned that that he may have
02:02
made this request to avoid
02:03
uh investigation i don't know anything
02:05
about it i
02:07
heard about at the same time maybe you
02:09
heard about it i don't know anything
02:10
about it i mean
02:11
you mean he's under investigation
02:13
because he had somebody walk his dog
02:14
from the government i don't know
02:16
it doesn't sound i don't think it sounds
02:19
like that important i mean
02:20
and you know what i'd rather have him on
02:22
the phone with some world leader than
02:24
have him wash dishes because maybe his
02:26
wife isn't there or his
02:27
kids are the you know what are you
02:29
telling me it's terrible
02:30
it's so stupid you know how stupid that
02:32
sounds to the world
02:34
unbelievable you're just telling me
02:37
about walking the dog and what'd you say
02:38
doing dishes
02:39
saudi arms deals sir what sort of arm
02:42
sales explain
02:43
past congress passed a law to restrict
02:45
uh
02:46
sales to saudi arabia over certain arms
02:49
concern over their use in the money
02:50
crisis
02:51
so the question is whether secretary
02:53
pompeo tried to subvert the
02:55
uh the deal with actions that he may
02:57
have taken i don't think so
