Secretary #Pompeo is currently testifying to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Republican @SenBobCorker, who chairs the Committee, was harsh in his opening statement.

He pointedly confronted Pompeo on Russia, North Korea, NATO & trade.

Here are his Russia comments. 1/4
Corker also confronted the administration's rhetoric on North Korea.

"In the face of these realities [Kim's atrocities], the President has called him very talented, and that he loves his people...Really?" 2/4

Corker lambasted the admin's comments on #NATO & the trade war Trump launched that will be devastating to U.S. farmers.

On NATO: "Trump used false information to turn public opinion...against the alliance."

On tariffs: "Farmers would rather have trade than aid." 3/4

The #Pompeo hearing is ongoing & you can view it live at the below link.…

While it is clear that this Republican Congress has done nothing to constrain Trump's worst impulses, it's a good sign that Senator Corker is holding Pompeo's feet to the fire. 4/4
