Home Crime  Psychopath Dick Cheney Says US Should Restart Torture Programs By Farron Cousins

Most importantly, I believe she is someone who can and will stand up to the President if ordered to do something illegal or immoral - like a return to torture. Mark Warner's decision strengthens the likelihood that she will be confirmed by the Senate in coming days.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is one of several lawmakers attempting to explain their hypocritical obstruction of Gina Haspel's nomination for Central Intelligence Agency director. Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate.

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.

While Manchin's vote made the outcome of the Intelligence Committee vote a certainty, Donnelly's public support was more important, because it means that the two Republican senators opposed to the nomination, John McCain of Arizona and Rand Paul of Kentucky, are now offset by two Democrats.

The letter comes ahead of Wednesday's committee vote on her nomination ― which she is expected to clear, thanks to the support of at least one Democrat ― Sen.


He said Haspel had not been straightforward to him in her answers at her hearing about whether she was aware the White House and other administration officials were against destroying the tapes at the time.

"Both the Committee and the Agency shared the goal of obtaining the critical intelligence needed to thwart another attack", Haspel wrote.

Haspel has said she drafted a cable authorizing the destruction, which was sent by her boss, former operations director Jose Rodriguez, in 2005. I also take to heart the strong support Ms. Haspel has among rank-and-file members of the intelligence community and from intelligence community leaders who served under President Obama.

"I have seen the classified material, which I of course can't get into, but there are other holes in the story beyond the fact that her former boss has publicly contradicted her", Wyden said in an interview Monday.

"It's not just the issue of torture", he said. I'm not one of those people who calls it torture.
