via Senator Rand Paul opposes Mike Pompeo, Gina Haspel nominations – AOL News

WASHINGTON, March 14 (Reuters) – Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul said on Wednesday he would oppose President Donald Trump’s nomination of CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be secretary of state and CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel to become the new director of the CIA.

Paul’s opposition could be a problem especially for Haspel, who has faced strong criticism for overseeing a secret Central Intelligence Agency prison in Thailand where detainees were tortured.
