Newly released emails between the office of Mike Pompeo and NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly cast further doubt on the secretary of state’s extraordinary claim that the journalist lied to him before a contentious interview.

Pompeo, who reportedly subjected Kelly to an expletive-ridden rant in his private living room after an interview during which he was asked about his role in the Ukraine scandal, issued a statement in which he accused the reporter of violating “the basic rules of journalism and decency”.

Kelly maintained that her meeting with Pompeo after the recorded interview was not agreed to be off the record.

NPR has stood by its reporter and emails quoted by the Washington Post show Kelly clearly expressing that Ukraine would be discussed.

1. This:

“Just wanted to touch base that we still intend to keep the interview to Iran tomorrow,” Martin wrote. “Know you just got back from Tehran so we would like to stick to Iran as the topic as opposed to jumping around. Is that something we can agree to?”

Kelly responded, “I am indeed just back from Tehran and plan to start there. Also Ukraine. And who knows what the news gods will serve up overnight. I never agree to take anything off the table.


What integrity. I knew we could trust Mary Louise Kelly.

3. Suppose Pompeo knew this Bolton manuscript wildfire was about to break out.

Maybe this explains him not wanting to touch the topic of Ukraine and his subsequent crack-up with Kelly.

Remember, he screamed at her, "Americans don't care about Ukraine" or something close to that. He's got a severe case of nerves over something.

4. Pompeo like most in this administration, just shout a lot.

When things go bad, they just shout a lot. They got nothing else. It's the same play book over and over. Hot wind and empty threats.
