John McCain Trashes Gina Haspel For Endorsing “Torture” Of Islamist Terrorists But Forgets This One IMPORTANT Fact
RINO John McCain trashes Gina Haspel for endorsing “torture” of Islamist terrorists but forgets he voted for Brennan who has same “torture” record. The man is not in his right mind because of his brain cancer. He should have already resigned from the Senate or been forced out.
Isn’t there any way for Arizonans to have him removed for being physically unable to perform his senatorial duties?

CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel testified before the Senate on Wednesday on her qualifications to lead the CIA.
During questioning Haspel was grilled on her previous participation in the waterboarding “torture” of Islamist mass killers.
The CIA reportedly waterboarded a handful of top terrorists after the 9-11 attacks and was able to obtain information that broke up several attacks and led the US to Bin Laden.
Democrats and squish Republicans believe this was immoral and a stain on US history.
Haspel refused to apologize for the interrogation methods during questioning.
McCain later released a statement condemning Haspel after the hearing.
I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country & has devoted her professional life to its service & defense. However, her role in overseeing the use of torture is disturbing & her refusal to acknowledge torture’s immorality is disqualifying. https://t.co/ocDtdqU2Sx

But Larry O’Connor, the host of the Larry O’Connor Show on WMALDC, reminded the senior Arizona senator that he voted for John Brennan — who had the same “torture” record as Haspel.
But Senator, with all respect, you voted FOR John Brennan who had the same record on rendition and enhanced interrogation as Ms. Haspel. Respectfully, why the double standard? https://t.co/AQM43yHWq4

Not just Dems. RINOs do that too.

It’s all about hating Trump. McCain is a vindictive bitter little man who hoped to end Trumps Presidency before it started by releasing that dossier to Comey. Remember he saved Obamacare too.

I agree with you. It seems McCain’s priorities are misplaced. Time to focus on eternity and not petty grievances.

He voted for Brennan who also voted for Gus Hall the General Secretary of the US Communist Party. Sad that a dying man can show the amount of hate he are showing to President Trump. He will not be dying in peace. Poor guy!

And it’s only gonna get worse as the cancer spreads. He really should get out of politics while he still has a smidge of dignity left. He’s always been a RINO, now he’ll continue to show just what a communist he really is, but used to be able to hide. 😬
