Voted against many of them, but for Pompeo for CIA, whose "record shows "enthusiasm for sweeping new surveillance programs targeting Americans" and openness to torture."
"The draft shows how out of touch Senate Intelligence Committee leaders Sens. Burr and Feinstein are with the needs of the American people. Millions of Americans suffer the loss, theft, or compromise of intimate communications, trade secrets, and identities each year. We desperately need more security, not less. Yet this bill would strongly discourage companies from providing it. The draft should never be introduced in a bill and should never advance in the Senate."
"Pompeo, in his public testimony, did not put to rest questions about positions on torture that he himself has professed in the past, or about what he might encourage Trump to do, if Trump should turn to him in private. Pompeo, in past statements, has defended the use of waterboarding under the Bush Administration, with the bankrupt argument that, although torture was illegal, waterboarding was not torture, and nor were other “techniques” that lawyers in the Administration signed off on."
There is no legitimate reason to ban refugees, the vast majority of whom are women and children who have experienced absolute horror. I very much regret that the president has chosen this dark path for our country.
