BEHNA: GOOD! Trump’s CIA Director Mike Pompeo Confirmed By Senate
On Monday evening, the Senate has voted in the affirmative to confirm Rep. Mike Pompeo as the new CIA Director for President Trump.

On Monday evening, the Senate has voted in the affirmative to confirm Rep. Mike Pompeo as the new CIA Director for President Trump.

However, Sen. Rand Paul voted No

After he voted no, he addressed it on twitter

From Rare:

I voted against the new CIA Director because I worry that his desire for security will trump his defense of liberty.

More than ever before, oversight of the secretive world of intelligence is critically important.

Programs are authorized, money is spent, and operations are carried out in the name of the American people, yet only a few members of Congress are even allowed to know what is happening in the dark corners of these U.S. intelligence programs.

Most of Congress was surprised to learn that the U.S. government was collecting all of our phone records in bulk. Most of what our intelligence community does is shielded from the rank and file of Congress. Only eight legislators are privy to the full extent of the surveillance state.

I understand Paul decision and if he feels like he needs to stand out from the rest then so be it. This is President Trump’s third nominee to be confirmed thus far.

President Obama had seven of his nominees confirmed on his first day while Trump only had two, so Senate Democrats are evidently putting up a fight.

Time will tell to see if the rest of Trump’s nominees can be confirmed. What do you think of Paul voting nay?  Leave your comments below.
