Trump CIA pick Gina Haspel gets Senate Intelligence Committee recommendation

President Trump’s CIA nominee Gina Haspel received the recommendation of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, sending the vote to the Senate floor -- where Haspel is expected to have the necessary votes to be confirmed.

The committee voted 10-5 to recommend Haspel, setting up a vote on the Senate floor as soon as this week.

I’m pleased to see the committee favorably report her nomination to the full Senate, and I look forward to her swift confirmation,” he added.

However, on Tuesday, she wrote to Democrat Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chairman of the intelligence committee, saying: “With the benefit of hindsight and my experience as a senior agency leader, the enhanced interrogation program is not one the CIA should have undertaken."

In a tough confirmation hearing last week, Haspel was also grilled about her role in the 2005 destruction of more than 92 interrogation tapes.
