Sen. John McCain called on the Senate to reject Gina Haspel's nomination to be the director of the CIA, citing her refusal in testimony on Wednesday to acknowledge "torture's immorality."
"I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country and has devoted her professional life to its service and defense," the Arizona Republican said in a statement Wednesday evening.
"However, Ms. Haspel's role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing. Her refusal to acknowledge torture's immorality is disqualifying. I believe the Senate should exercise its duty of advice and consent and reject this nomination," his statement continued.

Could it be that McCain was born with a brain tumor? Maybe that’s why he’s been such a dishonorable showboating back-stabbing scumbag his entire life.
Be glad when he dies.
My thoughts exactly. He's nothing more than a red angry boil on the ass of humanity right now and for a long time now. The world will be a better place without him in it.
I hope he lives just long enough to see her confirmed.
Actually it makes perfect sense. Leftism is a severe mental illness. McLame has a cancer of the brain and soul, one we can see, the other we can't. It only makes sense his life-long mental illness would get even worse with the brain cancer. As my tagline says; leftism is a moral cancer.
The sooner he leaves this earth; the better for everyone.
A sexist misogynist to the very end.
That he is for sure and he knows how much he is despised. I knew a guy who suffered with this disease of the brain and died. He was a really angry guy toward the end. He wasn't the same person at all really. Similar but very different.
It's hard to say how much of these comments are him right now and how much of it is the disease. It does no one any good for the media to publish his comments. The left wing news media is just using him for every last ounce of ill will they can before he croaks. Sad and pathetic.
John doesn’t like her means I love her.
Well right there’s a reason to love her for the role.
This bitter old man has been a constant thorn in the President’s side.
I wish he would try to die with some dignity and class.
I’ve never seen a more petty vindictive asshole on the way out.
He goes out once again affirming what a slimeball he is, lest we forget.
McShamey is a lying traitorous coward
Die already you F’in traitor.
I’m fine with the Pinochet treatment.
That miserable POS isn’t dead yet? Rotten to the core, for his entire life, may be roast in Hell when he finally frees Humanity from his constant depredations.
John, its me Val. I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all your hard
work on the behalf of The Resistance. What's that? Yeah, we're planning on coming to
your funeral, well, that is if Trump doesn't show up.
Agree, and would also love it if he hears one of his fellow Senators praising her for not turning into a songbird for the opposition just because they offered her special treatment.
She did not refuse to call torture immoral. She refused to call immoral what 911 agents did.
I’m trying to wrap my mind around this nomination, but when I saw her walk in and give a great big hug to...Senator Manchin, I was taken a little aback.
Beware, there are many who, and I don’t understand this, are saying she is a great choice...like Brennan???
I hope this is a good choice.
