Senators are vowing to kill the nomination of Mike Pompeo as the new CIA Director.
The Dailycaller reported: Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia said Sunday he is committed to opposing CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s confirmation to become the next secretary of state.
“I have decided to vote against him to be secretary of state. … We have a president who is anti-diplomacy, and I worry that Mike Pompeo has shown the same tendency to oppose diplomacy,” Kaine told CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “I don’t want a secretary of state who is going to exacerbate President Trump’s tendencies to oppose diplomacy.”
Democratic senators on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee grilled Pompeo Thursday in an hours long session.
Democrats questioned Pompeo about the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the politically contentious hotspots in Syria and North Korea and a number of other topics. The CIA director declined to answer many of their questions, arguing it would not be best to conduct legal analysis on the fly and in such a public forum.
