Rand Paul to oppose Pompeo, Haspel

March 14, 2018

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday he would oppose President Trump’s nominations of CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be secretary of State and CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel to lead the spy agency.

Paul said that he will oppose the nominations and “do everything I can to block” them.

“My announcement today is that I will oppose both Pompeo’s nomination and Haspel’s nomination,” Paul said.

Paul is the first Republican to come out against the two nominations, which were announced by Trump on Tuesday. Last year, he was the only Republican to vote against Pompeo for CIA director.

    Per the article Paul resists the Haspel nomination for the following reason:

    “Paul said he is opposing Haspel due to her involvement in the enhanced interrogation program during the George W. Bush administration. He said she showed “joyful glee at someone who is being tortured.”

    Now that on Friday the original post has been rebuffed, the organization who posted the article found that the dates Haspel was in charge of the “black site” were AFTER this incident, will Paul change his mind? Will the press or the Democrats (redundant) discontinue their trumpeting of this outrageous LIE? Of course not, to both. Paul is a “Never Trump’er” and the media/Democrats are, well we know what they are.
