Rand Paul To Block Pompeo, Haspel Appointments to State, CIA With Filibuster If Necessary

Sen. Rand Paul does not want Mike Pompeo or Gina Haspel to be promoted to new offices within the Trump Administration, and he’s serious.

Paul is not happy that Pompeo and Haspel allegedly oversaw torture action against our enemies and like other members of Congress, they don’t want to see our enemies hurt.

I don’t know about you, but I think our enemies should be tortured and even put to death they kill Americans or enact harm. I don’t understand Paul direction here. How can you give a pass to those who want to harm and kill us or who have killed us? I don’t agree!

“I will do whatever it takes, and that includes filibuster,” Paul told CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday. “I will try to make a point to the American people.”

Paul, whose talk-a-than on the Senate floor forced a government shutdown in February, characterized Pompeo as a war-monger more interested in regime change than diplomacy.

“I don’t think you really want people who are eager for war to be running the State Department. You want a diplomat. I, frankly, think that Pompeo’s positions are too much of an advocate for regime change, really everywhere, North Korea, Iran, Russia, you name it,” Paul said.

Paul blasted Haspel for her connection to controversial interrogation techniques used by the CIA under President George W. Bush after 9/11.

Sorry, Rand, I think you are fine Senator, but I don’t support this direction. If we don’t hit our enemies back harder, they will never take us seriously.
