Earlier this week, Pompeo slammed the Biden administration’s release of a declassified report on Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, calling the move “reckless.”

“It was political. It was aimed at harming a relationship with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the use of intelligence in a way that, as a former CIA director, I would have never stood for," Pompeo told Fox News on Sunday. "So I regret that they chose to do this. It was a political stunt."
