The musical cabinet chairs game Trump unleashed this morning could put a torture overseer in charge of the CIA. She would be replacing the guy who is being kicked up to Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. The guy who, as then-House Intelligence Committee chairman was also deep in the Trump campaign and eyeball deep in egging on Wikileaks:
Here is the since-deleted tweet from Mike Pompeo on July 24, 2016 pushing stolen Democratic emails and Wikileaks. Pompeo was head of House Intelligence Commitee at the time. 3 days later, Trump called on Russia Ã¢Â€Âœif youÃ¢Â€Â™re listeningÃ¢Â€Â to get ClintonÃ¢Â€Â™s email. pic.twitter.com/ZE5dLqrtI9

Fourteen Democrats voted to confirm Pompeo as CIA director last year. He should not have been confirmed then. He should not be confirmed now.
