Citing her history of torture, Rand Paul threatens to filibuster Trump’s pick to lead the CIA

Donald Trump likely expected significant opposition to his new nominee for CIA chief, Gina Haspel. But he probably didn’t expect that some of the most vocal opposition would come from fellow Republicans. Over the past few days, Sen. Rand Paul (R.-KY) has become perhaps the most vocal opponent of Haspel’s nomination, where she would replace Mike Pompeo — himself nominated as secretary of state.



Just a figment of your imagination.
