The Senate confirmation hearing for CIA Director nominee Mike Pompeo has been delayed to Thursday, The Washington Post reports.

The reason was for the delay was not known, but The Post reports Sen. Chuck Schumer's intention of spreading out the hearings might have been a factor.

Pompeo was scheduled to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, along with four simultaneous confirmation hearings originally slated, The Post reports.

That number is down to three; Education Secretary pick Betsy DeVos had her Wednesday hearing pushed back to next week, The Post reports.
