If the Senate approves the nomination, Haspel will become the first woman to be approved for this post.

Donnelly, who had been publicly "undecided" on Haspel, announced his support less than 48 hours after the Elkhart rally.

Waterboarding is not torture!

The Senate Intelligence Committee will vote on Wednesday morning on President Donald Trump's nominee to be the new director of the CIA, Gina Haspel, a committee aide said on Monday.

Though Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is urging the Senate to reject Haspel, her confirmation seems likely now that two red-state Democrats have offered their support: Sens.

"Many people can withstand different types of torture".

One Republican senator at last Wednesday's public hearing for Haspel before the Senate Intelligence Committee took the measure of this Democratic Party hypocrisy, asking Haspel sarcastically, "If Hillary Clinton had won and nominated you to be CIA director, how many votes do you think you would have gotten?"

"If it were my call, I'd do it again", Cheney said. McCain acknowledged that Haspel is a patriot who has devoted her life to serving the country, but he pointed out that her role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is "disturbing". They wouldn't tell me when they were going to put the towel on they would just smash it on my face and start pouring.

Before that, Ms. Haspel needs to secure more Republican votes with Mr. Paul, a Kentuckian known for his independent streak and libertarian views, at the center of the confirmation drama.

Both the Democratic senators and the liberal editorialists seek to present the Central Intelligence Agency torture program as an aberration, a violation of the moral principles that supposedly guide American foreign policy.
