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.

That’s OK, John - you’re gonna have an eternity in Hell to discover what real “torture” is, you brain dead POS.
Proof positive that torture works. I suppose at one time McCain was a patriot.
I doubt that he ever was. Hes too narcissistic to have been a patriot.
The Daily Mail’s version of this story juxtaposes a recent photo of the nominee and an old photo of McCain, not the current corpse-like version hooked up to tubes, with a rotted out brain, and bedside help to deliver his message of hate from the grave.
I repudiate ever voting for this man . He is now beneath contempt .
Since say, his dropping in to say hello to Ho Chi Minh
What a p**** this POS has shown himself to be in his last days
Burn in hell...
You’re the one.../s
I think Arizona voters should send him a final insult by recalling McCain before he dies.
I will certainly miss the McCain-bashing threads when he departs this mortal coil for destinations south. They never fail to brighten my day.
McInsane...A TOTAL A$$HOLE 'til the END.
Isn’t John McCain dead yet? Was he truly able to formulate this stupid statement and make himself understood over the din of the machinery keeping his filty, rotten heart beating? Or was a staffer seconded from Senator Kamala Harris’s office to write this bullsh!t and release it on his Senate stationery?
As an Arizonan, I have to believe Senator Barry Goldwater must be rolling over in his grave. The sooner McCain is interred, the better for all concerned.
Barry Goldwater suffered from the same kind of Liberal senility in his advancing years. Maybe it really was the AZ heats cumulative effect on the ego-inflamed mind?
McC(ins)ane is a much a scumbag as his megaphone, the lying MSM. He can’t shut up because he knows well there will always ready presstitudes to spread his stinking bile.
The necessary consequence of mans right to life is his right to self-defense. In a civilized society, force may be used only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use. All the reasons which make the initiation of physical force an evil, make the retaliatory use of physical force a moral imperative.
If some pacifist society renounced the retaliatory use of force, it would be left helplessly at the mercy of the first thug who decided to be immoral. Such a society would achieve the opposite of its intention: instead of abolishing evil, it would encourage and reward it.

It could be that McCain’s leftist staff and/or wife is issuing these statements in his name. We have no current video of him making comments.
Shut up McCain. If you can’t carry out your Constitutional duty of casting votes in the Senate on behalf of your state, then you shouldn’t be commenting on anything. You should rrsign
Those were my thoughts exactly.
