Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump's decision to nominate Gina Haspel to become the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), saying she was involved in "one of darkest chapters in American history."
While he expressed confidence in current CIA Director Mike Pompeo's ability to serve as secretary of State, an appointment Trump announced earlier Tuesday, McCain said in a statement that Haspel needs to explain her stance on torture.
"The torture of detainees in U.S. custody during the last decade was one of the darkest chapters in American history," McCain said. "Ms. Haspel needs to explain the nature and extent of her involvement in the CIA's interrogation program during the confirmation process."

John, take a dirt nap.
I’m much more confident in this pick now!
We are all planning on taking a dump on your grave McCain.
We dont care what you say
Have him come in and ask her in person.
if President Trump discovered the cure for cancer today that POS mcvain would say it should have been discovered yesterday. i would stand in line for his grave.
Sit on it, Ace.
Thanks McCain. Since you are crazy and despicable this is an endorsement of Mike Pompeo.
No John - the darkest chapters in Us history are when you rigged the savings and loan bail out. Followed by losing to Obama then selling out your own party for personal gain.
Lets not even go into you trying to overthrow a presidency illegally.
Go away John - resign now and we might let you keep your mythological history.
We have to put up with the torture of John McCain.
The last decade (or nearly) was the darkest chapter in American history, but not because of enhanced interrogation techniques.
McInsane doesn’t like her?
Good. That’s a plus for her.
This just confirms that Mike Pompeo is the right man for the job.
Did Juan actually say this, or was it someone else who was coherent?
I think it’s getting dark for McCain. He should worry about that.
Says the guy who’s in the dirty dossier deal up to his armpits...
McCain getting the GOP nomination in 2008 was one of the darkest chapters in American history.
I like the President’s pick much better now, too. Mccain is oonly good for losing the presidency to Democrats; thereby, helping to destroy our country.
