Denouncing Pompeo's 'Disturbing' Pro-War Record, Grassroots Groups Pressure Democrats to Unite Against His Confirmation

Does he see them this way? As suckers?
The Democratic Party is not going to bend to either Mnachin or Heitkamp on their support for military adventures, and wars, around our planet. Which is what Trump is literally banking on in offering up a Trio of Terribles, here.
It’s a death wish for the Democratic Party if they do. And, they must know that, deep down. Schumer and Durbin need to flip these votes or be saddled with the potentially nasty results, too.

So those defending Feinstein, by all means, the last word is yours.

My only defense of Field Marshall Feinstein is to fully support her opponent.

If Pompeo is confirmed it would be even more evidence of the shithole status of this nation.
