BRET BAIER (HOST): So for all that's been written about the deep state, what's your thought as the head of one of the agencies that's said to be part of the deep state and the leaks and everything else? 

MIKE POMPEO: Well the leaks are tragic and they're wrong. They're not only unlawful, they're immoral. I'm working diligently inside of my building along with my senior leadership team to ensure that they're not coming from the people who work for the Central Intelligence Agency. My team understands it's mission. It's mission is to tell the truth each and every day as best we know it.
