With Republican Rand Paul and Democrats on the panel opposed to making the Central Intelligence Agency director the top USA diplomat, the committee may vote narrowly against President Donald Trump's nominee on Monday (April 23) evening.

"When I met with Director Pompeo, we had a productive conversation about the complex security challenges we face, including the unsafe threat posed by North Korea's nuclear missile program", he said in the statement. "He should certainly be supportive of what the president is trying to do".
The showdown will take place at 5 ET today, unless Corker decides to postpone it or to simply report it out with no recommendation at all.
