Confirmation hearing before CIA director former Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo to be next secretary of state how did things go let's find out from Fox News radio's Rachel Sutherland that. Live in the nation's capital good morning Rachel. Hey good morning I'm Mike Pompeo kept is always pretty much speak at schools the other side of the pillow the entire time. And however there's couple of Democrat that seemed to be holed out hit and Cain did 280 Jeanne indeed being at that they may not. The vote it ticket not the committee and whip Republican Rand Paul. Also pulled out compete. I don't actually. And he is that you will not vote for Pompeo because it could be Pompeo have a hard time getting out and foreign relations committee. How many members are there on that committee. IO. I would eat it it's okay it's but it's fairly stands pretty large committee that. I I believe it is intense but it is and you know obviously Republican poll the majority right. But wit. Rand Paul Heath and. That don't want it Turkey and right the dead it was there anything at the hearing yesterday that kind of triggered anyone or was it pretty much like we thought it was going to play out. It did play out very much the way you know we've gotten and and the question that grabbed you saw. Definitely. If questions about the Russia probe questions about different. Hot spot around the world by North Korea being one also Iran. Pompeo I think that even as a parent and child were to withdraw from Iran nuclear deal that he would continue to lobby. The administration used to have a strong statement rockets have a strong. Peel and keeping their nuclear program. Not to hit it eight you know not going to have. You know. He was asked whether or not people leave it. The Russian president elect aren't any really. I a lot of those questions and those that. And it's got people partly art Democrat architect. And of in the past he has been pretty critical of the Iran a nuclear deal that. That might be a melting a little bit since that's part of this process. Yeah absolutely he'd he had been critical. The president has been critical but I think in the role of hitting the top diplomat is it. Two different take on being. And though. When it comes to getting out paternity of this by the way have been trying to look at heritage is aptly when members killed and at Woodbridge hall in the majority here at that. But we need to want to write if he'd do if he'd bail at the Annika. Though about what it comes to getting out if he doesn't get out committee there could be. A situation which the senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and pulling apartment Teri Hatcher he'll be curiosity getting. Caught on hand to war anyway and now I am not sure it'll come to. This is going is dependent on what these senators in. When are. Is there a timetable for that committee vote. I think he'll do it is it possible I don't know an actual date or time entitlement but I would imagine be and probably apparently at the. That was certainly a big a focus on Capitol Hill yesterday and what's so what's on today's agenda. Today's agenda on the hill. You know it's Friday. I you know I don't have committee hearing differently and I think it's gonna be a lot going on in Washington concerning. Kobe saying it.
