Second US Democrat to support Haspel as new CIA chief

Second US Democrat to support Haspel as new CIA chiefA second Democratic senator said Saturday he would support Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA despite her past role overseeing the torture of terror suspects, likely assuring her confirmation. With Donnelly’s support, Haspel appears to have the minimum 50 votes needed to be confirmed as the next head of the Central Intelligence Agency. Both Donnelly and West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin, who also supports Haspel, come from conservative states and face tough re-election bids in the November midterm elections.
