Schumer Delaying Pompeo's Confirmation as Head of CIA After Having Promised to Confirm All NatSec Heads By Last Friday

Senator Burr has a pointed summation: "He lied."

So what's this about?

Here's what I think it's about: The Democrats are banking on a lunatic scenario whereby Michael Flynn or others on Trump's staff are found to have conspired with Russia. They figure, I think, that the acting head of the CIA -- note that with Brennan's (none-too-soon) departure there is no official head of the CIA, just some holdover acting as head -- will be able to ferret out the Traitors whereas I guess they think Pompeo wouldn't be as serious about Finding All the Traitors.

So they're going to expose the US to greater security risks and higher chances of a successful terrorist attack to appease the crazies on the left pushing for Chimpeachment 2: Chimps Gone Bananas, and risk American lives on a 0.0000001% chance that there's anything to this newest pipe-dream conspiracy theory or that Brennan's Boyz can find evidence of it.
