Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst and head of Clarion Intelligence Network Ryan Mauro weighs in on the confirmation hearing of Mike Pompeo for secretary of state. The stakes are high with the issues of the Iran nuclear pact, the summit with North Korea and the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on the table.
Mauro says Pompeo’s answers on the Iran deal show he is not a “close-minded partisan” like so many in Washington these days. His confirmation would jump start Trump’s international policies after getting off to a non-starter with former secretary of state Rex Tillerson, whose policies were not in alignment with Trump’s.
