Mike Pompeo, Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State, is a torture apologist, a climate denier, and an Islamophobic hard-liner.
We don't need more "yes-men" in Trump's Cabinet! It's bad enough with John “Bomb Iran” Bolton as national security advisor.
Thankfully, we do have opportunities to push an already-skeptical Senate to block Pompeo's nomination.
On April 12, Pompeo was grilled by the 21-member Senate Foreign Relations Committee. It's looking like he may fall short of majority support from the Committee: nine of ten Democrats on the committee have said they oppose Pompeo's nomination, including NJ Senators Booker and Menendez!
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell could still bring up the nomination on the floor of the Senate despite a negative vote in the committee.

Letting Mike Pompeo fly through confirmation to become Secretary of State would be irresponsible. His confirmation would be extremely dangerous for our nation and our world. He's threatened regime change in North Korea, attacked the Iran Deal, championed America's endless wars in the Middle East, made friends with extreme anti-Muslim hardliners, and embraced the use of torture.
Approving Mike Pompeo means approving John Bolton's war agenda. Our Senators need to take a firm stand for real diplomacy.
