Donald Trump just got a big win on Mike Pompeo

McCaskill is being criticized by Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley, the Missouri attorney general, for voting for Pompeo as Central Intelligence Agency director but potentially not as secretary of state.

The statement of Pompeo's that most concerns Cardin is the one "condemning Muslim leadership in regards to giving comfort to terrorism in the United States", Cardin said. A vote before the full Senate-where Pompeo has the support of three Democrats-is expected later this week.

Mr. Pompeo faced the prospects of an unfavorable vote by the Committee until the last minute, when Republican Rand Paul withdrew his objection and voted 'yes.' All 11 Republican members voted for Mr. Pompeo. "I believe Director Pompeo is capable of advancing USA interests and leading the State Department, and I will support his nomination". Ben Cardin (D-Md.) both cited Pompeo's anti-LGBT statements as among the reasons they oppose his nomination.

On Monday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee recommended the pro-life conservative for the position after a narrow vote, the AP reports. Rand Paul had been so against Mike Pompeo's warm views towards the failed Iraq War, as well as torture methods hidden under the linguistic disguise of "enhanced interrogation techniques".

Secretary of State, she said, requires more diplomacy and less instinct toward fighting as a first resort.

Mike Pompeo's nomination for secretary of state has received a boost because two Democratic senators announced they would support his confirmation before the full Senate.

President Donald Trump is attacking Democrats as he seeks Senate confirmation of Mike Pompeo as secretary of State.

Manchin says "during this sensitive diplomatic time, it's important our next secretary of state understands the grave threats facing our nation and can offer diplomatic solutions to avoid conflict, as soon as possible". Reporting on the looming battle over Pompeo's nomination, he explained: "Chances are that Pompeo, at least, will ultimately prevail in the Senate within the next few weeks, humbled but not necessarily hobbled by the Foreign Relations Committee". But India could be Pompeo's first port of call after his confirmation considering Washington and New Delhi have had to repeatedly postpone the bilateral two-plus-two dialogue that has been due for several months now, with Tillerson's resignation in March nixing the one scheduled for April 18-19. The vote came after widespread speculation that the former Kansas Congressman would not receive a favorable recommendation. Pompeo has moved into a central role in the Trump administration's negotiations with North Korea, secretly meeting with the country's reclusive leader Kim Jong-un earlier in the month.

The chairman of the committee, Republican Sen.
