8. Oh, hell no.

The widespread criticism from Democrats ensures that GOP leaders will have difficulty confirming Pompeo and Haspel as expeditiously as Republican leaders hope to do. But the backlash is not expected to upset their eventual chances of confirmation — especially because Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday he has no plans to ask Democrats to oppose their nominations.


Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the author of the report that exposed the extent of the CIA’s interrogation programs, appeared to defend her.

“She has been, I believe, a good deputy director,” Feinstein said, stressing that the interrogation techniques employed on Haspel’s watch were not, at the time, explicitly illegal.

We need to let every Democratic Senator know that Haspel is unacceptable as CIA Director.
