You really need to know a few important things about Gina Haspel, Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA. So here it goes…
Gina Haspel is ran a “black site” prison in Thailand during the Bush years, where she allowed inmates to be waterboarded.
Haspel told a waterboarded inmate: “Good job! I like the way you’re drooling; it adds realism. I’m almost buying it. You wouldn’t think a grown man would do that.”
Haspel later destroyed CIA videotapes documenting torture. In fact, she PERSONALLY directed that the destruction be done by an "industrial-strength shredder."
Haspel would report back to CIA headquarters — namely, the failure to get any meaningful intelligence from her torture tactics.
Haspel's inmate was slammed into walls, kept for hours at a time in painful stress positions, denied sleep, and locked for hours in coffin-like confinement boxes.
By now you know the inmate was waterboarded 83 times. 83! She decided to keep him naked in a cell lit by halogen lamps for 24 hours per day while subjecting him to constant noise.
Donald Trump has said waterboarding is “great”. And he wants Haspel to lead his CIA.

Over to you, United States Senate. What are you going to do about it?
