Pompei cursed at reporter for asking about YovanawitchSecretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday accused an NPR reporter of lying to him after he made news Friday for allegedly shouting at her after an interview about Ukraine.

Pompeo suggested she could not point out Ukraine on a map, contrary to her account of the testy conversation. But he did not dispute Kelly's most explosive allegation: that he shouted and swore at her and suggested Americans don't care about Ukraine.

"NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly lied to me, twice," Pompeo said in a statement released by the State Department. "First, last month, in setting up our interview and, then again yesterday, in agreeing to have our post-interview off the record."

Kelly interviewed Pompeo on Friday about Iran and Ukraine. Kelly said Pompeo grew extremely irritated when she pressed him about his response to attacks on former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.
