The Senate confirmation hearing for Rep. Mike Pompeo, President-elect Donald J. Trump’s pick for head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Rep. Pompeo, 52, is a third-term congressman and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives during the 2010 Tea Party wave.

From Wichita, Kansas, he serves the 4th Congressional District in Kansas. In addition to serving on the House Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi, he served on the Committee on Energy and Commerce, the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade and the Subcommittee on Energy and Power.

Rep. Pompeo’s nomination came as a bit of a surprise to some politicos, despite his background on military and intelligence issues. However, he was on the House of Representatives intelligence and energy and commerce committees, as well as the House Select Committee on Benghazi that investigated the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya.
