United States senators asked to block Trump's Central Intelligence Agency director pick

And Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia announced this week that he will back Haspel.

The Trump administration has disclosed the executive summary of Mr. Durham's report to the Intelligence Committee, and on Thursday, Senator Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona, wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking for it to be made available to the full Senate, calling it "critically important" that all lawmakers have access to it.

During that time, she ordered prisoners to be interrogated using techniques like waterboarding and sleep deprivation. "I remember the operative who was in charge of that", Haspel said. But these assurances were not enough for the exquisite sensitivities at the Post, or for Democrat senators who are loath to confirm anyone, obviously qualified as Haspel is or no, nominated by Donald Trump.

In an article for Politico Magazine published Friday, the Kentucky Republican wrote that Haspel's Central Intelligence Agency was "rendering accused terrorists to unfathomable torture in Syria, as well as Egypt and Jordan".

"I had a tough, frank, and extensive discussion with Ms. Haspel on a wide range of topics, including her vision for the agency and how she would approach the job, as well as issues of detention and interrogation", Donnelly said.

Over the past few days, Mike Braun, the Republican nominee for Senate in IN, attacked Donnelly for being undecided on Haspel's nomination and playing a political game with his vote, the Washington Free Beacon reported. "Or you can send Republicans like Mike Braun to drain the swamp".

After graduating from high school in England, Haspel returned to the U.S.to attend college - she started at the University of Kentucky majoring in journalism before moving across the state and graduating with honors from the University of Louisville.

With Paul and Senator John McCain not on board with Haspel, she'll need a few votes from Democrats in order to be confirmed.
