John McCain urges Senate to reject Gina Haspel’s CIA nomination | Daily Mail Online
President Trump’s pick for CIA director Gina Haspel received less than stellar reviews from Senator John McCain Wednesday following her confirmation hearing.
McCain released a public statement seen on his official website where he urged the Senate to reject Haspel for the role, based on her role in the enhanced interrogation program during the Bush Administration.
The senator said in part: ‘Like many Americans, I understand the urgency that drove the decision to resort to so-called enhanced interrogation methods after our country was attacked. I know that those who used enhanced interrogation methods and those who approved them wanted to protect Americans from harm.
