Pompeo, Who Once Said The CIA "Lies, Cheats And Steals" Defends US Intel On Huawei Spying

Secretary of State (and former CIA head) Mike Pompeo, famous for once saying that the CIA “lies, cheats and steals,” is has reversed course about U.S. intelligence agencies, and in an interview with Euronews, Pompeo said US intelligence agencies "occasionally make mistakes" but that they should still be trusted and taken at their word.

In the interview, Pompeo claims that U.S. intelligence agencies are correct in considering Huawei a national security threat, a claim that has stood at odds with some of Washington's European allies. Pompeo said: "There’s no doubt the intelligence community gets things wrong from time to time but their overall body of work is excellent and to be relied upon and trusted." He continued: "Western countries, liberal democracies share a common value set. The Chinese don’t share that value set."
