As CIA Director Mike Pompeo's nomination for Secretary of State heads towards the fast track to confirmation, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) joined Todd Starnes to talk about whether Pompeo was facing scrutiny for his Christian beliefs from lawmakers like Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).

Sen. Lankford said, "We've allowed secretaries of state or anyone serving in government to be able to have a faith and live their personal faith, but also understand they represent people of a diverse background, which we all do."

Sen. Lankford also explains what should be the real purpose of a confirmation hearing should be. Sen. Lankford said, "Secretary of state has always been evaluated on 'are they competent for the task?'.  You may philosophically disagree, but the president gets to be able to choose his own Cabinet."
