Democrats fail when enough defect.
Via Free Beacon:
Democratic Sens. Mark Warner (Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) announced their support Tuesday for Gina Haspel to be the next CIA Director, likely ensuring her confirmation.
“I’m going to support Gina Haspel’s nomination to be Director of the CIA. I also respect my colleagues who have made a different decision,” Warner said in a statement.
Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement he would support Haspel after she wrote a letter stating the CIA should never have used its enhanced interrogation program. Haspel, a career intelligence officer, came under pressure from Democratic lawmakers over her post-9/11 role overseeing a “black site” in Thailand, where waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation tactics were employed against suspected terrorists.
