"This administration following through on that very important move of the embassy to Jerusalem. How we were told that this was going to explode the Middle East that there would never be any hope of peace. At this point. In fact, it's exacerbating the situation. I mean, it's worth looking back and recognizing who's wrong and who's right. I'm only chuckling because it was the establishment chorus that rang out for weeks and weeks and weeks and said, if you do this if you move the embassy, the U. S embassy to the rightful capital of Israel to move into Jerusalem or if you acknowledge that the Golan Heights is the territory of Israel, or if you say, you know Goodness, gracious Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria. Not not all of them are necessarily illegal. If you do those things you're gonna have the 94th Intifada. You have World War seven. I mean, just the stories where we're crazy, and President Trump made a bold decision. He did those things he took down the caliphate in Syria, the isis caliphate in Syria and Iraq. He took out. Baghdadi took out Sulamani in each case, right? The previous administration said, No, we're not prepared to do those things that create too much risk. Too much instability.

It's been the objective for, um administrations in the United States for Europeans for Seattle, Middle Eastern countries for years, it would be a glorious thing to get Iran to to get to the place that we were out of the White House two weeks ago to acknowledge The right of the Jewish state to exist about to shout Death to America.

If we could get to that place if we could get to in a radiant understanding where they could rejoin the normal world in the community of nations, that would be a glorious outcome.

Trump panned over reports he called US war dead 'losers'

"William Branham reports on the fallout intensifying today over an article that alleges President Trump made disparaging remarks about U. S troops. It's a fake story, and it's a disgrace that they're allowed to do it. President Trump is firing back after a report in the Atlantic magazine and later confirmed by multiple news organizations, said the president several times called fallen American servicemembers, losers and suckers in the Oval Office today, the president again flatly denied ever making the comments. And instead touted military spending under his administration. There's nobody that considers the military and especially people that have given their lives in the military to be the heroes. Who the heck does he think he is his Democratic opponent, former vice President Joe Biden, whose own son, Beau, served in Iraq. Called the reported comments deplorable. But my son volunteered, enjoying the United States military as the attorney general. I went to Iraq for a year. Won the Bronze Star. Another commendations. He wasn't a sucker secretary of state Mike Pompeo, who was on a 2018 trip to Paris when the president allegedly made some of these comments. Told Fox News. He doesn't remember them have never heard the president used the language. Those certainly has said in that article. But going back to his 2016 campaign, Mr Trump has had a complicated relationship with the military theme. He's often praised those with military experience and has had many working with him in the White House. But other times he's questioned their service. Like his widely criticized comments about Senator John McCain, who was tortured and imprisoned for more than five years during the Vietnam War, a war hero. I like people that weren't captured President Trump overwhelmingly one among veterans in 2016, But since then, his approval rating among members of the military has dropped to 38% in a new poll from Military times.

"But I guarantee you that once they had that precedent of compelling companies to go along with this they will a guy like bill and his Justice Department will stop nowhere in wanting to get into people's phones. It is not worth the cost of people's privacy and civil liberties for the additional convenience for investigators have an easier way into people's funds yes Let's talk about Mike Pompeo for a bit so late last Friday night. President trump fired a guy named Steve Clinic. Whose State Department Inspector General in the latest Loyalty perk that's happening across the government so for listeners. Inspector General is supposed to be an internal watchdog within the executive branch within the agencies. They are political appointees but they operate independently. They often get tips from whistleblowers about corruption or mistakes from mismanagement and they're supposed to work with the agencies and with Congress to investigate the incident and then make them public it's a position that was created after Watergate as part of those reforms so recently trump has just been systematically removing these I G at criticize him and replacing them with in this case we know that Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo asked trump to fire Olympic. The State Department I G so POMPEO did interview with the Washington Post. He said that Lennox work with somehow undermining the mission of the department but he didn't explain how trump was later asset a press event why he fired clinic and he said. I don't know I don't know anything about him. So really a compelling. So ben here's some possible reasons pump hale may have wanted him fired first. Win was reportedly investigating whether Peyot had improperly used State Department staff to. Do you know personal errands. Like pick up his food or dry cleaning or like his dog at the groomer literally the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman. Eliot Engel said he had asked clinic the I G to investigate whether POMPEO had improperly sold billions of dollars with a weapons to guess who the Saudis. So we're going to buy one. But regardless I mean trump is required to notify congress about the removal of an I g and provide a detailed justification for it and has not yet done so so then. Let's there with the allegation. That POMPEO was asking staffed. Just do personal errands for him because some people might hear that in think like what's the big deal. He's a busy guy. Lots of people ask their assistant to make a reservation at a restaurant or whatever the issue is when you're talking about any federal employees it is illegal so it's a big deal. A whistle blower told Congress that POMPEO's diplomatic security agents call themselves ubereats with guns because they're constantly asked to pick up. Mike takeout orders on Monday. Trump was asked about these allegations. He said quote. I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than having washed dishes because maybe his wife isn't there so just bringing some blatant sexism into it bringing the patriarchy yeah This also dovetails with broader criticism that we've talked about before that. Pompeii was misused. State Department resources by taking three official quote Unquote State Department trips to Kansas. When he was considering a run for a Senate seat there so then you know two questions about this piece of the story. How big a deal do you think these allegations are in? And why do you think Pompeo seems to be able to whether these kinds of abuse of power allegations when other cabinet officials have been fired pretty quickly? Well first of all just the fact that you would remove the inspector general because the person who runs the State Department doesn't like it kind of runs completely counter to the spirit of having inspectors general like the people who get investigated. Don't get to decide that they no longer would like to be investigated I look. I think that there's a clearly at an issue of of Pompeo essentially kind of personalizing the use of State Department resources. That is troubling. Look any any buddy who runs. The State Department has the basic tension of the fact that they're they're running a large sprawling government department not unlike the Pentagon although not as big with mostly career people career civil servants and farm servants. And they're supposed to be a line between you know someone's personal or political interest and what that large department is doing and with pompeo. Everybody can focus on the streets with guns. I think it's the broad pattern. Essentially of he's using all these different resources to fly himself to Kansas or taking his family on trips. Or Yeah maybe having. These people do errands for him. I don't think that's the issue here. In fact I think pompeo wants to make that the issue. He tweeted some picture of himself with his dog is much more dangerous and unethical behavior. That was likely being investigated and POMPEO. Trump would be happy to have a good old argument about whether or not. It's okay for you. Know some diplomatic security agents to pick up dry cleaning from Tayo and complain about liberal bed. Who Don't like that I so so I think it's problematic but actually don't think it's the core issue here and I think the frankly Pompeii or would rather have an argument about whether people walked his dog then have an argument about whether he basically broke the law to expedite billions of dollars in weapons deliveries to Saudi Arabia over the objections of Congress. So let's talk about the Saudi thing then so I agree with you like the Saudi arms dealer issue is much bigger deal so here. Here's a quick story. Last year POMPEO was working on a deal to sell eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia in the UA. But there was bipartisan opposition to the Saudi peace of that sale because they had just murdered a journalist named Jamal Kashogi and because the Saudi led war in Yemen had become a humanitarian disaster and these arms were probably destined for that theater of war so by Lottie executive branches required to give Congress thirty days notice about their intent to sell arms to a foreign country during that time. Congress can block the sale. So what Pompeo did you reference was really shady. He declared a national emergency which allowed him to skip the congressional review process and fast track these arm sales so he claimed the emergency was a threat from Iran. But you the way you know that's bullshit because some of these weapons weren't even ready to be delivered for a year so some emergency there so now. I'm no expert in arm sales but some experts. I read suggested he might have broken a couple of law. So I there's the Arms Export Control Act two pieces of that I. He went around Congress which is legal in second. You have to ensure that the arms are for legitimate self-defense reasons and it's not clear that they were also may have violated the Foreign Assistance Act. Which says you can't sell arms to a country to be human rights abuser and there was this big piece in the Times over the weekend. But how jared Kushner and like a right wing you know White House Economic Advisor named Peter Navarro have been pushing arm sales as just solely jobs program right like these guys have no foreign policy experience interest in you humanitarian or diplomatic impact. It's just about like the defense industry and Mark Asper. The Secretary of defense is a raytheon former raytheon lobbyists so then Obama oversaw a lot of foreign military sales right including so the Saudis. The Times piece noted that Obama average thirty six billion a year in arms sales during his second term trump has averaged fifty one billion a year. So it's huge increase so like you know back to what you're getting Alec. How big a deal do you think this emergency declaration is by Pompeo? Is that end run around Congress and then how is this arms sale process supposed to work so I imagine you were in a ton of meetings where these were considered and vetted and either approved or not? Well yeah first of all. I think there's normally supposed to be a process right. Where essentially the State Department has to license an arms deal Going forward right and this can be in. Many cases can be a fairly routine exercise. Right where Defense contractors or you know working with foreign governments and then the State Department is licensing and arm sale. It's notified to Congress. Congress has a period to raise some objections. If there are foreign policy considerations that come into play then this might get discussed in the situation room. Sometimes there weren't sometimes this routine but for a relationship like Saudi Arabia and certainly with like a hot button issue like Yemen. It's a kind of thing that would go through an interagency discussion process. Should this go forward but then it still has to be licensed by the State Department and notified to Congress. What is so notable here? Right is is first of all. They've gotten rid of any pretense that this is anything but a corrupt enterprise in the sense at Raytheon depends on Saudi Arabia for a significant chunk of its business. The former top lobbyist at Raytheon is now the secretary of Defense of the United States. Donald trump when asked about Saudi behavior like the killing of Jamal Kashogi or the killing of tens of thousands of civilians in Yemen consistently says well they're giving us a lot of money so they're not you know they're not hiding the basically the priority here is the Saudis write checks and their sell them weapons and if those weapons are used to kill children and innocent civilians they could care less what what this introduces the further point. Though that they basically blown up the process including the legal process. They're supposed to go through. And so you have a situation where trump is ignored repeated and veto repeated congressional efforts to stop these arm sales to Yemen then. He ignored the requirement to even notify. Congress anticipating the objections he get and essentially trumped up a fake emergency. Because there's no emergency today. The situation in Yemen situation with Iran has basically been an escalating mass for years. There's not any reason that this is now. Suddenly an emergency. The only reason to do that would be to avoid that congressional scrutiny and it just sounds like since. Pompeo took over the State Department. They've got into the State Department's normal process of reviewing these things so we we have the fact that there's a fundamentally corrupted relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia. We have the fact now that they are basically ignoring any kind of process that they are supposed to go through their legally compelled to go through in order to move forward with an arm sale. And it makes you wonder what might inspector general discover if he started poking around? What kinds of conversations has Mike Pompeo had with people? Where does he directed people to do? Has He directed people to violate laws or protocols? What possible corruption might there be between trump officials and the Saudis? You know what is happening. Is there a whistle blower who might have some awareness of the corruption between a jared Kushner or Mike pompeo and the Saudi government? Because the the the hard truth is no matter. What the Saudis do no matter? How bad this war in. Yemen goes the arms sales just keep increasing and no matter what the congressional scrutiny right so clearly. Pompeo minimus flouting what he should have been doing as normal process and notifying congress. The question is just how nefarious it goes. Yeah we have not heard the end of this story. I mean it sounds like this spectre general might have been at the very end of his work on this exact investigation into this arm sale. So I'm glad that angle is is sounding the alarm. Hopefully we learn more information soon. Because you know that's a big problem. Yeah and look angles been pretty cautious member of Congress. I would frankly like to see him. Be More aggressive about these things. I'm glad he's doing this but you know like this is. This is one of the biggest unanswered questions of the trump presidency. Just what is going on between them and the Saudis is there. Money involved is a real estate dealings involved. Are there promises about a post-presidency windfall for the trump family involved? What the Hell is going on? Because it is not in America's interest to be shoveling these weapons out the door to a country that is using them to bomb Yemen into smithereens. Kill all these innocent civilians and not achieve any of their stated objectives with respect Uranian influence..

"He said something about how he's not sure that humans what humans can really do to try and combat climate change. Do you agree with that or would you argue the other side? I think An and rex working on this When he was at the company and we continue work on that we step back and look at First of all we're in the in the business of meeting society's needs We recognize that one of the needs is less carbon intensive energy sources. And so we look at where today are hydrocarbons used. And what are the alternatives available and how Sufficient is the solution set and we see significant gaps in commercial transportation power generation and industrial sectors. And so we're working on technologies to help close that gap or working on carbon capture and storage to use power generation using industrial applications. Were you looking at new materials? to redesign manufacturing processes to take energy and heat out of those which then reduces the matter greenhouse gases. We're looking at bio fuels which are energy dense that can replace Dent Diesel so there's a lot of work that we're doing that we think can contribute to that space but it will require a technology Advancement and breakthrough to ultimately get to the stage where we can Reach the size aspiration of eliminating co two emissions. Kind of talk to you just about Corona virus. I know that Exxon Mobil Lee has the tenth largest travel budget of all the companies. That we we kinda follow out there. Have you guys been cutting back on travel as a result of what we're here we have? We have actually Because of our long history of operating a Lotta different locations around the world you think about a bowl. Think about SARS your these are all things that are corporations had to deal with the different times and so we have a pretty robust protocol in place that we exercise we find ourselves in a situation like we are now the criminal buyers we executed that very early on which means cutting back discretionary travel and means folks moving into their homes work remotely. We've we've geared up our workforce so they can do that effectively reduce the number of people coming into our facilities so we implemented that very early on Tab. You've got long ago when when I came out we we set the ESPN. And then what happens as we find that krona buyers breaking out in different locales locales? We will stand that. Espn system up. We've got about fifteen hundred employees and China about seven hundred fifty in Italy Another one hundred twenty five or so And Korea South Korea and so All this protocols have been put in place and very pleased to say we have not had any employees have been impacted by the current virus. Has It affected your operations at hasn't affected operations. We do some of our customers Particularly in China have pulled back and so that that meant less product demand We have Fab yards constructing materials. Things slowed down so there have been slowdowns. I would say and some of the work that we're doing but we're actually seeing that pick back up again and I I know you're not a variety Or even an economist for that matter but your gut feel as a CEO who watches the numbers on a daily basis. What what's your best. Guess about what happens to the global economy. We're expecting to see something where we have a dip. And we'll see that kind of expand around the world we have. We saw the dip initially China. We're starting to see. The rebound my expectation is and those low cows where you see that kind of contagion spread that we'll see that dip but then we'll see a fairly quick rebound. That's interesting when we had Sam Zell yesterday here who said he thinks The Energy Patch is a great place to be investing and he said by the way everybody else already invested in. It is in the position where they can't invest a whole lot more because they are underwater on so many the is when you look back and you look at these companies like Sam Zell who is I- i- conic the all these companies. Make a ton of sense but we're in this. Es investing phase where anything with any sort of harmful carbon footprint or any chemicals as being thrown out and when you look at the seven percent yield the stocks down twenty eight percent year to date and everything in the energy complex has been underperforming not for this year but for the last five years. Can't live without this stuff though. The Globe doesn't continue to turn. Tito's is warning customers about using vodka vodka to make homemade hand sanitizer in a tizzy air responding to several inquiries on twitter. The company said per the CDC Vodka does not meet the alcohol requirement needed for hand sanitizer. Sixty or seventy percent alcohol at least to kill the virus according to the CDC. Tito's is like forty percent or something so probably it's probably been ninety. What's appropriate is the ninety percent or whatever it is really forty is eighty proof and one hundred proof is is really strong fifty percent alcohol. So you need seventy you beat the virus with any of the Pure L. or any of these things you have to have like sixty to seventy. That was a problem with with kids putting their hands in their mouth after you put pure L. on them. I remember that when my kids were younger. We didn't want before it before it dried up. He didn't want the alcohol content going going into their mouth. Crazy stories. Cheese will be next next on Squawk tied the US Secretary of State. Mike pompeo describes working with China during a global virus. Outbreak has proven incredibly frustrating to work with the Chinese Communist Party to get our hands around the data set which will ultimately be the solution to getting the vaccine and attacking this risk and how. He's keeping himself healthy during his travels. No fist-bump for you. I'm happy fist-bump to we'll be right back. Today's uncertainty may cause you to question your investment strategy but with the right perspective and investment solutions. We think it's possible to stay on track toward long-term goals with Janice Henderson. Abandon your dance. Not your financial goals in fact this squad from CNBC Open Andrew. Good Morning. Welcome back to Squawk box right here on. Cnbc Andrew Becky quick and Joe Kernan virus hitting countries around the world the US State Department has issued travel advisories for American citizens including for China. Italy South Korea The advisory for China is a level. Four Americans should not travel there. This comes as the number of infections in the United States has topped two hundred with twelve desk. Join US now with more on the response of the virus secretary of State. Mike POMPEO's secretary. It's great to have you in Especially in studio here. Great to be with you the testing kits. I know we that seems to be paramount on what we're trying to do. I know the vice president is heading things up and we were looking at some lofty numbers. Goals that we were told we would hit that. We are now not not going to hit. What's the hold up and killing really address this without many many more testing kits? So I'm involved in the testing gets directly. I'm trying to work on the things outside the United States to make sure we get right there. You hear about it but I've seen I've certainly seen the work that's going on trying to get the private sector ramped up to get the rate right so that we can do all the testing. That's needed World War card at that. We have taken this incredibly seriously. We'll continue to do that. The testing kids are one element of America's effort to reduce testing hundreds of thousands of people. And we I was at the original or you're not a next. I don't know if you're the person asked but it was the original agent from the CDC that they didn't realize was wasn't didn't work properly. I'm not the right person to ask. I'm not I've not been involved in hard. I love it but you would concede that something that that we gotta get it. We've got to get it right. We got your. Here's something you might be able to to address in that. Is I am hearing from UNICEF the Restaurants Union. The restaurants are there's people in restaurants where it almost looks like. China has had some success in in dealing with this capping it. We would hope that that can happen. In other countries around the world including the United States. But we're told that we don't have the same type of capability to quarantine people because we're not authoritarian. Is the Chinese governments as the Communist Party. Could we have a similar success here with our civil liberties that we take for granted? I'm confident we can handle here. I'm confident we'll handle it. Better than any nation in the world I I'm happy you complement of the Chinese Communist Party today but remember this. This is John. Corona virus caused us the information that we got at the front end of this thing. wasn't perfect and has led us now to a place where much of the challenge we face today is put us behind the curve. And that's that's not that's not the right it's not the way infectious disease doctors. Tell me it should work. It's not the way. America works with the transparency and openness and the sharing of the information that needs to take place It has proven incredibly frustrating to work with the Chinese Communist Party to get our hands around the data set which will ultimately be the solution to both getting the vaccine and attacking. The Chinese government is is now pushing back in again eunice. Yoon has been reporting some of what they put in the state run media where they say that. It's not clear that this even came from China at this point and they're mad at the United States for not thanking them for the efforts. They've taken to try and slow it down to this point. What are you saying? I'm happy about the efforts that they have taken but no less authority than the Chinese Communist Party said it came from Wuhan. So don't take Mike Pompeo's word for it We we have pretty high confidence that we know where this began and we have high confidence to that. There was information that could have been a male.

"NBC news dot com slash dp film and when we come back secretary of state mike pump <music> welcome back president trump announced that he is abruptly called off what was supposed to be secret toxic camp david apparently this weekend between the government afghanistan the taliban in the united states in a series of tweets last night. Mr trump said he did so after the taliban admitted to a car bomb attack this week that killed twelve people including an american soldier joining me now on this issue and many other secretary of state mike pompeo mister secretary. Welcome back to meet the press talk. It's great to be with this morning. Thank you for having me on the show. Thank you for coming on. Let me start with what this means so he canceled these talks is this is this talks are off completely so for the time being that's absolutely the case <hes> we've recalled embassador halil lozad back to washington <hes> we've been working on this problem set for a number of months now and frankly had made <hes> real oh progress with the government of national unity president ghani as well as with the taliban are twin aims were to reduce violence i was i was just a few hours ago. Out at dover air force base race meeting with the family of the last soldier first class beretta. I met his lovely wife two boys eleven and four <hes>. It's precisely those moments that make you recognize so clearly. We have an obligation to reduce risk at the same time we can never permit territory strike again from afghanistan here into the united states are negotiations have been aimed at at achieving each of those objectives while reducing violence and getting the afghans for the first time in chucker. She'll know over over fifteen years to actually sit at the table together talk about the path forward in a more peaceful way. I was just going to say it's it's. There's plenty of reporting out there that indicates that the afghan government had indicated they weren't coming coming and that they had pulled out. I is that how the timeline events went. That's false. Okay what. When did you know in this meeting wasn't going to happen. I'm not gonna talk about specifics but we had been working on this meeting for a little while and then <hes> after the death of sergeant first glass bredow and the the the attack by the taliban <hes> with a simple effort to improve their negotiating posture yeah that that that was impressive trump can never stand for and we inform both president ghani and our taliban interlocutors that these meetings were not going to take but mister secretary the taliban have been killing americans throughout these negotiations and some people had criticized the united states for participating in negotiations with the taliban during this why why now why. Why wasn't this a problem before. It's always a problem anytime taliban conduct terror attacks certainly when they injure americans or kill american so it's it's always a problem <hes> you should know in the last ten days. We've killed over a thousand taliban and while this is not a war of attrition. I want the american people to know. The president trump is taking it to the taliban alabama in an effort to make sure that we protect america's interests we will never give up <hes> gentlemen scotty miller's capacity to protect americans. We are doing it now. We were doing it yesterday today. We will continue to do it. <hes> what we have been working on. We we knew the war had continued. You gotta get a deal. You gotta get an arrangement where both sides agree that they're going to stand back and they're going to reduce violence silence. We were we were making real progress towards that.

"Talk and they were giving mike pompeo the run around the north koreans were they called the conversation overall regrettable they also accuse the us of making gangster like demands when it comes to getting rid of nukes this is the whole basis of the conversation this is the whole basis of why we're even talking to north korea which would be getting rid of the nukes yes getting the chubby little nutjob to stop threatening to the united states of america at the rockets down this is how it works so the outcome of the follow up talks was very concerning because it led to a dangerous phase that might rattle our willingness for denuclearization that has been firm we expected this is from the statement from the north koreans we expected that the us side would come with productive measures can do to building trust in line with the spirit of the north korean us summit and we considered providing something that would correspond to them however the attitude and stance of the united states showed in the first high level meeting between the countries was no doubt regrettable mike pompeo was asked about it mike pompeo is a very cool customer because he could have flown off the what the hell are you guys talking about the whole basis for our conversations for you guys to get rid of your nukes we're trying to figure out a good way to get there you're calling as gangsters right he didn't flinch he just said this he didn't even say it was ridiculous it was just here's the clip i'm counting on chairman kim to be determined to follow through on the amendment that he may and so if those requests for like there the the world is a gangster because there was a unanimous decision of the un security council about what needs to be achieved i told you i spent a little bit of time with my nieces six years old and three years old respectively and the way mike pompeo just talked about the north koreans reminded me of the way sometimes my brother and my sister in law will talk to their children when they're acting out of line and they're saying example i want more cheerios already but i want more oh really you want more while i'm sorry you're not gonna get any more we already talked about this no it is just he just it's a very calm way of telling north korea to stay in its lane stern but calm yes exactly the world is a gangster by the way is the new snoop dogg cd dropping tuesday so now a bunch of pundits are out there saying trump has failed and we told you so right you seen all this of course because trump has been talking pretty positively about where things are because there was there was positive movement yes and nothing is over right now this is north korea being north korea moving the goalposts all the time when it comes to getting rid of their nuclear weapons or their nuclear program so because the press and a lot of pundits out there hate the fact that this president could possibly be making any progress whatsoever where before there had been none they love seeing this oh yeah they love seeing the possibility bunch to todd on meet the press oh no the sleepy i'd want him i still never i don't think he has sleepy is i mean i know the president's very good at branding people i just don't get this sleepy is chuck todd i've tried but i can't i can't make that work in my head but anyway he put up this montage that's pretty dishonest but it was this chuck todd with the montage introduces it and then we'll outgrow it here and i'll explain why this is a little bit dishonest here this is the president within hours after meeting with kim jong by the way you like that little chuckle of course they do this is the president just wants to know he's the smartest guy in the room within hours of the north korean summit this is the president within hours after being with kim jong north korea start immediately as soon as he arrives he's gonna start a process that's going to make a lot of people very happy and very safe i mean he's g nuking the old place and he's gonna start quickly i think he's going to start now they're getting rid of a missile testing they're doing so much so it's a process it's really moving rapidly.

"I've been accustomed to saying the senate and i'm proud of him i'm proud of our committee and i'm happy for the american people i think it showed that centers at the right time can do outstanding things that was senate foreign relations committee chairman bob corker getting emotional discussing the decision by his democratic colleague chris coons to vote present to advance mike pompeo's secretary of state nomination yesterday and senator coons joins us now and for those who might not get the politics of this who thought maybe you should have stuck to your guns tell us why you did that well meek i really appreciate what chairman corker had to say afterwards to be clear i voted against mike pompeo in the committee and will vote against him on the floor but because of a senate rule he couldn't advance from the committee to consideration by the full senate in less majority of senators present voted that way and my good friend johnny isaacson had been at home in georgia delivering a eulogy for his best friend that afternoon the only thing that my changing my vote to present did was changed the hour of the vote if i hadn't done that senator isaacs and would have been compelled to come to washington last night he could have gotten in about eleven eleven thirty and we would have reconvened and he would have had to cast the same vote so it didn't change the outcome but it did change the timing and it was an opportunity for me to show a small measure of kindness and respect to a colleague in the senate.
