Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by Human Rights Watch, J Street, Indivisible and others opposing the confirmation of Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State. Mr. Pompeo has been a proponent of war against Iran and North Korea, he denies that climate change is an issue, and is vehemently anti-Muslim. His expressed views render him unfit for a position requiring diplomacy.

Your letter will be sent to your Senators.

Mike Pompeo is unfit to be Secretary of State.

He advocates repealing the Iran nuclear treaty, saying that it would take only “2000 sorties to destroy the Iranian nuclear capacity.” He is equally militaristic about North Korea, stating that the administration was seeking ways to “separate” Kim Jong Un from his nuclear weapons.

Pompeo also supports using torture and collecting U.S. citizens' communications without a warrant. He opposes LGBTQ and women’s reproductive rights. 

His views send the wrong message to our allies and adversaries alike. They could harm the State Department’s efforts to attract and retain Foreign Service officers and hinder the Secretary’s ability to carry out existing US policies under the State Department’s authority. 

Please oppose Mike Pompeo’s confirmation as Secretary of State.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
