Rep. Mike Pompeo New

The Washington Post is reporting that Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo has accepted Donald Trump’s offer as CIA director in his new administration

Pompeo is a three-term Republican from Wichita,who has met earlier this week with Trump, and  has a background on military and intelligence issues, it seemed likely that CIA director and Army secretary were two possibilities.

Pompeo originally supported Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s presidential bid. Like most of his Kansas colleagues, Pompeo backed Trump when it was clear the New York real-estate developer would become the Republican presidential nominee, though not enthusiastically.
