The Foreign Relations Committee in the US Senate has supported the appointment of Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State, and it is expected that the entire Senate will confirm their decision very soon, maybe this week.
The Committee voted for the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Mike Pompeo, to become Secretary of State, including committee member, Republican Rand Paul, who changed his mind having earlier opposed Pompeo’s appointment. The Republicans have 51 votes in the Senate against the Democrats, who have 49. However, Republican senator John McCain is under treatment for cancer. #politics #johnmccain #ussenate #pompeo #7D #7Dnews
