Warner asks Haspel to fix 'unacceptable' public disclosure of her record

Donald Trump's pick to run the CIA, Gina Haspel, offered to withdraw over 'torture' role

"My highly respected nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, has come under fire because she was too tough on Terrorists".

According to them, the proposal was Haspel to withdraw his candidacy was boosted by the growing supporters of her candidacy concern due to the fact that the White house staff may be concerned that her nomination is in jeopardy.

But Haspel has reportedly told senators that she's not willing to revive the interrogation program, a stance echoed by some of her supporters.

"The White House is fully behind her", Short said on MSNBC.

Jameel Jaffer, former deputy legal director of the ACLU, pushed back on Trump's tweet, writing: "Trump is backing Haspel *because she approved torture*".

Haspel, who serves as the CIA's deputy director and has spent 33 years in the agency, most of it undercover, faces some opposition in Congress because of her connection to the interrogation program that was set up after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Almost as soon as she was nominated, Haspel was criticized by Democrats for running a C.I.A. black site in Thailand; for her support of tactics such as waterboarding, stress positions, and sleep deprivation; and for her alleged involvement in the destruction of nearly 100 tapes containing footage from interrogation sessions.

President Donald Trump swept concerns that his CIA Director nominee, Gina Haspel, had allowed torture under the rug by saying she was just "tough on terror".

They said Haspel, who is the acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, was reassured that her nomination was still on track and she will not withdraw.

President Trump defended the use of torture on Monday while tweeting his support for acting CIA Director Gina Haspel, his pick to officially head up the agency. Haspel also received the support of the editorial boards of New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Weekly Standard. "Discussions stretched several hours, officials said, and the White House was not entirely sure she would stick with her nomination until Saturday afternoon, according to the officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations".

She has received robust backing from former intelligence, diplomatic, military and national security officials, who praise her extensive intelligence career.

"I need to do a lot of work on her nomination", Collins told HuffPost earlier this year about Haspel.

On the opposing side are groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, which says she should have stood up against the interrogation practices then.

Sanders added that Haspel is a "patriot" and a qualified candidate for the role.
