Was the Senate right confirm Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State?
In five hours of testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Mike Pompeo, currently the CIA director, made his case to become the top US diplomat.

Pompeo sought to refute his widespread reputation as a war hawk, saying he was hoping for a diplomatic solution to the North Korean nuclear crisis and still believed that the Iran nuclear deal could be saved. He also surprised many by appearing far more friendly toward Democrats than he had been during the Benghazi investigation in 2015, during which he repeatedly attacked then-Secretary Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.

Despite strong opposition to his nomination, Pompeo was eventually confirmed 57-42.
