According to media reports, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is expected to begin confirmation proceedings for Mike Pompeo in April, according to a statement from committee chairman Bob Corker. Pompeo is currently the Director of the CIA. He was confirmed to that position in January 2017 with a vote of 66 to 32.
Meanwhile, Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he hasn't had a chance to talk to Rex Tillerson today. He said he last spoke to the former Secretary of State last week, when the two discussed North Korea.
"We've tried to reach Tillerson," Corker said. "I haven't had a chance to talk with him."
Corker added that he has enjoyed working with Tillerson and has heard "good things" about Mike Pompeo, Trump's pick to replace Tillerson.
