Trump just appointed a war criminal to lead the CIA.
On March 13, 2018, a flurry of announcements and tweets revealed a shakeup in Trump’s administration. Rex Tillerson is out at the State Department. He’s being replaced by Mike Pompeo, who until now has been Trump’s head of the CIA. That leaves an open position to lead the spy agency—and Trump has given it to Gina Haspel.
Gina Haspel was already passed over for a promotion within the CIA once before because of her tortured past. There is no justification for her to become the head of the entire agency now. Each senator must immediately commit publicly to voting against Haspel, full stop.
