In case you missed it — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today questioned CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel before the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Click here to watch the interview in full. An excerpt of their exchange may be found below.
Senator Cotton: These programs, to the best of your understanding, were approved by the commander-in-chief, legally approved by the attorney general, and by the director of the CIA, who, at the time, I point out, was the former Democratic staff director of this committee. Is that correct?
Gina Haspel: That’s correct, Senator.
Senator Cotton: You said you were not a senior manager when those programs were created, is that correct?
Gina Haspel: That’s correct.
Senator Cotton: Was John Brennan, a member of the senior intelligence service and the deputy executive director, at the time, a senior manager in your opinion?
Gina Haspel: Senator, I believe Mr. Brennan was the deputy EXDIR of the agency at that time.
Senator Cotton: And you’d consider that a senior manager position at the CIA?
Gina Haspel: I believe it’s the number-four position.
Senator Cotton: For John Brennan, who was confirmed to be the CIA director by the following members of this committee: Senator Warner, Senator Feinstein, Senator Heinrich, Senator Collins, Senator King, Senator Burr, Senator Manchin, Senator Wyden, and Senator Rubio.
