Tea-o-con Mike Pompeo claimed with a straight face Russia is "doing nothing to aid in the defeat of ISIS."

From the Associated Press:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump's pick to run the CIA took a tough stand against Russia on Thursday, distancing himself from the president-elect, who wants to warm relations with Moscow.

Rep. Mike Pompeo, a four-term conservative Kansas Republican, spoke at his confirmation hearing before the Senate intelligence committee amid a testy standoff between Trump and the spy community over Russian activities during the president election.

"Russia has reasserted itself aggressively, invading and occupying Ukraine, threatening Europe and doing nothing to aid in the defeat of ISIS," Pompeo said, referring to Islamic State militants.
What a load of crap.

Russia has done more to defeat ISIS in the last year than Obama did in his entire term.

I would assume Trump picked this guy to try and balance insiders with outsiders just so he can get things done, nonetheless it's pretty clear he's a tea-o-con.

Evidently, there was a blackout during his hearing where all the lights went off.

Perhaps it's an omen singling the establishment's days are numbered.

Hopefully, Trump can wrangle these hacks in and keep them from doing too much damage.
