Senator David Perdue Votes To Confirm New CIA Director, Congressman Mike Pompeo

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today voted to confirm Congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas as President Donald J. Trump's Director of the Central Intelligence Agency: 

“Our nation is facing a global security crisis like we've never seen before. From serving in the Army, patrolling the Iron Curtain, to his time on the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Pompeo understands the complex threat environment we face today. From traditional rivals Russia and China, rogue regimes like Iran and North Korea, the ever-growing threat of radical terrorism, to new dimensions like cyber and space, he intimately understands the challenges facing our intelligence community. America’s intelligence professionals are on the front lines of our national security, and they will be well-served with Mike Pompeo providing new leadership to the CIA at a time when we need it most.”
