US Senate Confirmed Mike Pompeo as Director of the CIA
The US Senate confirmed Representative Mike Pompeo to be President Donald Trump’s Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Monday, despite some lawmakers’ concerns that he might expand surveillance or allow the use of so-called Enhanced Interrogation Techniques widely considered torture.
As voting continued, there were 67 “Yes” votes, more than enough to confirm Director Pompeo, and 30 voted against. The opposition came from Democrats.
Expect all of President Trump’s Cabinet nominees to be confirmed soonest.
