CIA Director Mike Pompeo is Donald Trump’s choice to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. His confirmation hearings begin THIS WEEK, and we have to do everything we can to block his appointment.
As CIA Director, Pompeo has been accused of radically politicizing the agency and colluding with ideologically driven organizations to misrepresent intelligence. He has supported torture, denied climate science, promoted anti-Muslim views, and opposed diplomacy with Iran.
With Trump increasingly erratic, and with warmonger John Bolton as National Security Advisor, it would be more dangerous than ever to have Pompeo running the State Department.
Stopping Pompeo is going to be an uphill fight, though. Fourteen Democrats and one Independent, including Senator Dianne Feinstein, voted to confirm Pompeo to head the CIA last year.
As Pompeo prepares to testify to the Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday, we need an outpouring of constituent opposition to let Senator Dianne Feinstein not to make the same mistake twice.
So, call our Senators and say something simple like:
Please vote against Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State. He has supported torture, promoted anti-Muslim views, and denied climate science, making him a bad face for our country.
