Mike Pompeo: A Soldier, Spy Chief And Tea Party Republican Becomes A Diplomat

Mike Pompeo speaks at a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing on worldwide threats on Feb. 13. He has been a leading critic of the nuclear deal with Iran and has said the U.S. would not soften its stance on North Korean ahead of planned talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Trump.

He’s been a tank commander, a successful businessman, a congressman and head of the CIA. He’s cultivated a tough-guy persona with hawkish views on foreign policy. Now he’s the country’s top diplomat.
