LIVE VIDEO: Confirmation Hearing For Trump’s CIA Pick

The Hill reports:

President Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA Gina Haspel will be grilled by senators Wednesday at a hearing expected to center on her role in the CIA’s use of harsh interrogation techniques during the George W. Bush administration.

Haspel, a 33-year career veteran of the agency, faces a difficult confirmation battle given the GOP’s narrow 51-49 majority. She almost certainly will need support from Democrats to be confirmed given Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) expected “no” vote and Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) absence from the Senate.
