Pompeo: U.S. won't recognize Russia annexation of Crimea

In a hearing on Capitol Hill today, Former CIA director and Trump's replacement Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says Trump remains upbeat about the prospect of North Korea denuclearization, and that the United States will not recognize Russia's annexation of Crimea.

The boss in Moscow won't like that.

Pompeo told members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the U.S. will not remove sanctions on Russia for its occupation of Crimea, but that control of Crimea must be returned to Ukraine.

Pompeo says he disagreed with Trump's one-on-one meeting with Putin, and considered it improper.
