Tom Cotton: Senate Dems Opposing Haspel ‘Are Blinded By Their Insane Hatred for President Trump’
COTTON: "The answer is very simple, politics. Gina Haspel has served 33 years in the CIA keeping our country safe from the Russian threats now and during the soviet era as well as from terrorists, raising her hand in the aftermath of 9/11 saying I will go to the counterterrorism center when she could have docked that for easier duty. That’s one of the reasons why so many of the intelligence leader administrators from the Obama Administration support her. These are people who served under Barack Obama. As far as I can tell, the only Democrats who oppose Gina Haspel are in the Senate and I guess it’s because they are blinded by their insane hatred for President Trump. But in the end there will be a handful of Democrats that join near-unanimous Republican support and confirm Gina Haspel as our next and first female CIA director."
