The US President does not change his habits. On critical new appointments — Secretary of state and CIA Director — he first said in his microblog:
“Mike Pompeo, the CIA Director, will become our new Secretary. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel, will become the new CIA Director and the first woman to be elected in this way. Congratulations to all!”
Tillerson has led the Department since February of last year. The American media have repeatedly reported frustration trump the Secretary of state’s job and willingness Tillerson to leave this position.
According to The Washington Post, Tillerson was at odds with trump on a number of issues, “including the number of troops in Afghanistan, the blockade of Qatar and Cuba.”
So, the replacement Tillerson for another piece was an expected event.
Mike Pompeo is an American politician and businessman before his appointment as CIA Director was a representative of Kansas in Congress 2011-2017. He was a member of the Tea party movement in the Republican party. The movement is named by analogy with the “Boston tea party”. The modern “Tea party” political movement emerged in 2009 as a series of protests coordinated at the local and national level, caused, including act of 2008 emergency economic stabilization and reforms in the field of medical insurance.
Already former CIA Director known for his, shall we say, cautious attitude towards Russia. Pompeo expects that Russia will meddle in the mid-term elections in the U.S. Congress, scheduled for autumn 2018. He stated in a BBC interview:
“Of course, I certainly expect that Russia will continue to attempt to do this, but I am sure that America will be able to hold free and fair elections, and that we will resist quite successfully, and their impact on our elections will not be significant.”
According to Pompeo, Russia has reduced the intensity of attempts to conduct subversive activities in the United States and Europe.
And the first female Director of the CIA, — Gina Haspel know that she is an officer of American intelligence.
