"I think this is playing politics, and they need to stop it, because it's jeopardizing our country in a really critical time."

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said that Democrats’ opposition to Mike Pompeo’s confirmation as secretary of state is “pure politics,” during an interview on Monday.

Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo asked McCarthy what he thinks about the Democrats’ opposition to Pompeo, given the numerous threats that America is facing around the world.

“Pure politics,” McCarthy said. “Watch what he did in the House and on the Intel Committee, but then he gets confirmed to be the head of the CIA. So if those who didn’t know him voted for him there, they watched the job that he did there. He only expanded his ability.”

“Look what we’re dealing with North Korea and what he’s been able to do so far,” McCarthy said. “I think this is playing politics, and they need to stop it, because it’s jeopardizing our country in a really critical time.”
