Pompeo suggests senior Russian officials behind Navalny poisoning

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that there is a "substantial chance" senior Russian officials are behind the poisoning of Russian opposition activist Alexey Navalny.

"I think people all around the world see this kind of activity for what it is. And when they see the effort to poison a dissident, and they recognize that there is a substantial chance that this actually came from senior Russian officials, I think this is not good for the Russian people. I think it’s not good for Russia," Pompeo told Ben Shapiro in an interview.

Pompeo added that the Trump administration is yet to decide how to respond to the attack on Navalny, but assured people "we’ll make sure we do our part to do whatever we can to reduce the risk that things like this happen again."
