Discussion over Haspel illustrates how we want senators to make decisions

Discussion over Haspel illustrates how we want senators to make decisions

When John McCain speaks, his fellow senators listen.

Ryan's remarks come in the wake of news that a White House aide mocked McCain's health, saying "he's dying anyway" in response to the senator's opposition to President Donald Trump's pick to lead the CIA, Gina Haspel. "My father's legacy is going to be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years", she said.

McCain, 81, is in Arizona battling brain cancer. John McCain, once again had to use her platform as a host of ABC's The View to defend her father, who is now under treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer.

For those who feel torture to be an unacceptably extreme measure of interrogation, reprehensible, and of gross moral turpitude, I posit the following scenario. "...we're supposed to be this shining beacon to the world that we're above that, that we believe in the presumption of innocence that we believe in trials...." Haspel was a chief of the base at Thailand at a covert detention site where terror suspects were waterboarded due to which she knew what it was like to be a close confirmation vote in the full Senate. "She's done hard jobs and done them very well", Cheney said, seemingly alluding to Haspel's time in Thailand.

McCain was tortured as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War, sustaining injuries from which he has never completely recovered.

The derisive comment was reportedly made during a discussion of Haspel's nomination. The Washington Post also reported Sadler's remarks.

"I have found Gina Haspel to be a person of great character", Manchin said in a statement, saying he looks forward to "working with [her] to ensure the people of West Virginia and the United States are kept safe".

Haspel needs at least one Democrat to back her nomination in the Senate of 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats, as McCain and Sen. Haspel gets rave reviews from former national security officials from Democratic and Republican administrations, and is said to be strongly supported by agency employees. "I know them, I know the threats we face, and I know what we need to be successful in our mission". McCain's view of what works and what doesn't, she accepts.

On Wednesday, McCain, who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam and was tortured by his captors, issued a statement urging his fellow senators to vote against Gina Haspel for Central Intelligence Agency director. I am not one of those people who calls it torture. "His legacy is so long that John McCain is a hero to us and ... all of our thoughts and prayers are with John and his family right now at this time". However, the President of trump insists on the approval by the Congress, its candidate.
