Federal Action: Oppose Gina Haspel for CIA Director

Background:

Gina Haspel has been nominated by Trump to be the next CIA Director. Gina Haspel was already passed over for a promotion within the CIA once before because of her tortured past. The Senate torture report indicated that the CIA committed crimes that went beyond what they were authorized to do, and they lied to Congress about the brutality and torture. Gina Haspel tried to cover up the evidence by ensuring videotapes of the torture sessions were destroyed. She was never held accountable. It is too dangerous to let Gina Haspel lead the CIA.
