Trump’s war Cabinet is nearly complete. With Gina Haspel’s confirmation coming down the pike and Mike Pompeo and John Bolton firmly in place, Trump has nearly finished filling out his Cabinet with war hawks and retreads from the Bush administration. We should have learned from the Iraq War that the world, and our country, are less safe when we go to war first and ask questions later.
Gina Haspel personally helped torture detainees in a secret CIA-run prison during the Bush administration. She then made sure the video evidence was destroyed.
Torture is illegal in all circumstances, without exception. It was illegal then and it’s illegal now. Gina Haspel carried out crimes but, instead of punishment, she’s getting a promotion. Unless we stop her. It’s up to the Senate to decide whether to confirm or reject Gina Haspel to lead the CIA. We can block her if Democrats vote together.
Hi, My name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [part of state] calling about Gina Haspel’s nomination as head of the CIA. I want Senator Schumer/Gillibrand to immediately and publicly commit to opposing this nomination. Gina Haspel carried out torture and destroyed the evidence. She is completely unqualified to lead the CIA. Will SenatorSenator Schumer/Gillibrand oppose her?
