It’s funny how all of the Dem women get snarky when someone asks a halfway decent question. Everyone with half a brain knows that the Democrats have been blocking President Trump’s nominees. Mike Pompeo’s nomination for Secretary of State is no exception!
Watch Senator Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) get a little snarky in an interview with Margaret Brennan. Feinstein was asked questions about perceived left-wing pressure in her home state to oppose President Donald Trump’s nominees as she seeks re-election in November.
On “Face The Nation,” Feinstein discussed her issues with supporting Gina Haspel to be the next CIA Director in place of Mike Pompeo, who has been nominated by President Donald Trump to be the next secretary of state.
Feinstein, as other Democrats have, said she opposed Haspel’s position on enhanced interrogation but stressed she wouldn’t make up her mind on Haspel until after her confirmation hearing. Brennan said it sounded like Feinstein was leaning toward a “no” even though Haspel had strong support from within the CIA.
“There are some in the intelligence community who are looking to you as a very key vote here … There are those who are questioning whether it’s possible for you personally to be supportive of her, given the pressures you are feeling from progressives back in your home state of California right now, that you just can’t afford to support any Trump nominee,”
