Sen. Mark Warner to Support Gina Haspel for CIA Director. Grrrrrrrr

Senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee will likely vote on Wednesday to advance Gina Haspel's nomination, despite questions about her time overseeing a black site where a detainee was tortured and about her role in destroying evidence of torture years later.

Brutal interrogation practices are now banned under USA law, but debate on the issue has re-surfaced during Haspel's confirmation process because she was once involved in the CIA's interrogation program.

A second Democrat on Saturday said he would vote in favor of Haspel, even as Republican Sens.

Most Republicans are expected to back her.

"Over the past year I've had the opportunity to work with Ms. Haspel in her role as Deputy Director, and I have always found her to be professional and forthright with the Intelligence Committee", Warner said.

McCain, a war hero who was tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, is one of just two Republicans who have announced they will vote against her. John McCain, Arizona Republican, is not expected because he is home battling cancer. According to Haspel, she categorically against the resumption of this program.

He also cited the support for Haspel by former CIA directors under the Obama administration, Leon Panetta and John Brennan, and General Michael Hayden, first appointed director of the National Security Agency by Democratic President Bill Clinton and later CIA director under George W. Bush. "Someone who has been an active participant and enthusiast for torture is not someone who should represent America", he said in an interview. "I have serious reservations about this nominee, and I will oppose her". I'm not one of those people who calls it torture.
