CNN: Pompeo Reporters Not Being Told Where They Are Going Next

‘The press pool traveling with the secretary of state, they’re not being told where they are going next’

BERMAN: "We do have some breaking news we want to tell you about this morning. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, he is on a trip overseas, and we are learning this morning it is taking an unexpected turn. He just cancelled a trip to Berlin. He was due there, set to meet with the German chancellor Angela Merkel. We got word from the State Department that that trip was cancelled at the last minute. While this is going on, the press pool traveling with the Secretary of State, they’re not being told where they are going next. They have been told they may not be able to report from the country they’re going to until after they leave. Now, we do know that Pompeo will meet with the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, a week from today in Sochi, Russia. But one of the reasons this is of note is because, obviously, the United States has ratcheted up the pressure on Iran over the last several days. Mike Pompeo has been talking about that. There are warships moving to the Persian Gulf. And this meeting with Merkel was cancelled for pressing issues. So is there some kind of a crisis situation the Secretary is dealing with? We're trying to get some new reporting on that."
CAMEROTA: "Obviously, we’ll continue to follow that for you."
