China Bigger Threat to U.S., than Russia - CIA Chief Mike Pompeo”

"If [the decision] had significant risk- cost, political, military risk to lives of officers - that's [an] important [decision] for the Director to [make]... but if it's just coming to me because I was the next fellow in the chain of command - then that's a mistake because I would inevitably slow it down and I would not be in a position to add any value to that decision making process", Pompeo said. "I have every expectation that they will continue to try and do that but I'm..."

"Asked if his concerns extended to the upcoming U.S. mid-term elections in November, Pompeo told the BBC: "Of course".

SDF says Turkey lying with claim that Islamic State is in Afrin
The UN says it is deeply concerned by the fighting, and has warned that an estimated 323,000 civilians in Afrin are at risk. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US was "asking both sides to show restraint ".

"We're going to work on those complicated problem sets and push back against the Iranians everyplace we can", he told the BBC.

President Trump himself has been reluctant to acknowledge the Kremlin's interference in the 2016 election.

"While President Trump stands practically idle, Mr. Putin continues to refine his asymmetric arsenal and look for future opportunities to disrupt governance and erode support for the democratic and worldwide institutions that the United States and Europe have built over the last 70 years".

In the interview, Pompeo also repeated his message that North Korea was close to developing missiles which could be used in a nuclear attack on the United States.

During the BBC interview, Mr Pompeo also commented on his working relationship with President Trump - saying he provides the US President with intelligence briefings nearly every day the two men are in Washington DC.

"It is absurd, the claim that the President is not engaged and does not have a grasp on these important issues is unsafe and false", Mr Pompeo said.
