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.

The weasel is delusional. Who died and made him god?
Well, ya know what? I’m not going to his funeral.
He voted to confirm Obama's CIA director, John Brennan, even though Brennan held a higher position in the CIA at the time of the waterboarding. McCain knew that Brennan's CIA position had much more input on that decision (than Haspel's) and Brennan admitted - at his confirmation hearing before McCain - that he said and did nothing to oppose waterboarding;
John Brennans confirmation: How they voted - Excerpt:
"Thirteen Republicans wound up voting for Brennan, including five members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Among the most notable were Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.)."
I think if the government screened politicians for personality disorders, half of them would be out.
Did John vote for or agin the impeachment of Bubba? Anyway, he knows torture works because the VC used it on him and he turned. He just won’t admit it. Just sayin.
You mean nut?
The Viet Cong made one huge mistake! They let McNuts live! ESAD, McNuts!
Yeah, right. Who is really the person using John McCain’s name to speak out against Gina Haspel? At this point, I think McCain is so far gone, he doesn’t even know who HE is, let alone Gina Haspel.
If John McClain doesn’t want her there it means we need her there!
I voted Palin.
More crap from the Hanoi Candidate. He just can’t shut his filthy mouth.
Where does the line start to pi$$ on his grave?
Just when you think he cant get any more vile.
It is the person and not the disease. My father died of this horrible cancer and he possessed none of the vile traits of John McCain.(Thank God)
Maybe it’s a bit like alcohol; it brings out the real person lying beneath the facade when sober.
If so, that’s a shame, I really wanted to like that guy. He’s gone now so it doesn’t matter but he did disappoint his closest friends.
John McCain: Obama thanked me for my vote killing Obamacare repeal
McCain: I Gave The Dossier To Comey Because Duty Demanded It
I am certain this is a very personal issue for John McCain. Torture made him the man that he is today... The Manchurian Candidate!
Everything he has ever done has been bad for America.
I think you are right about the disease bringing out the real person.
