Democrats want answers on a host of Trump administration matters. And they’re going to demand them from Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel.
Pompeo is ‘a reckless choice to lead our nation’s diplomatic efforts’ due to his ‘longstanding opposition to LGBTQ equality,’ said HRC President Chad Griffin.
Experienced U.S. diplomats and Donald Trump agree on at least one thing: Rex Tillerson sucked as secretary of state.
Pompeo accepted an award from a group the ADL named an anti-Muslim hate group. He’s done Islamophobe Frank Gaffney’s radio show 20 times. Now he’s our secretary of state.
A bumbler who disagrees with Trump from time to time is better than a yes man as America’s chief diplomat.
And that history makes Haspel ‘unsuitable to serve as CIA director,’ a top Democratic senator says.
The secretary of State is no longer, and a Trump ‘body man’ was escorted out of the White House. And now CIA chief Pompeo will take over the State Department.
