At a Senate Foreign Relations confirmation hearing for Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo on Thursday, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) praised the CIA Director, citing their work together in the House of Representatives.

“Director Pompeo had an incredible opportunity to serve together on the House Energy and Commerce Committee for a number of years,” Gardner told the committee.

Pompeo pointed out that Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) also served on that committee.

“There’s no one who came better prepared, more understanding of the issues, and always looking for a creative answer,” Gardner said of the nominee. The senator told the committee that he “admired” Pompeo’s “diligence” to find solutions to problems.

“I know that continued as Director of the CIA and will continue upon his confirmation at the State Department,” he added.
