Ahead of Mike Pompeo’s nomination hearing in the Senate Intelligence Committee today, American Bridge president Jessica Mackler released the following statement:
“Mike Pompeo is a right-wing ideologue — a deeply divisive, Islamophobic, and pro-torture politician who is dangerously unfit to protect our national security as CIA Director.
“Pompeo has questioned Muslims’ ‘commitment to peace’ and called Muslim Americans slow to condemned terrorist acts ‘complicit.’
“As CIA director, Pompeo would amplify — and worse, bureaucratize — Trump’s un-American ‘us vs. them’ rhetoric that fuels hatred and terrorism, inspires white supremacists, and puts our national security at risk.”
