WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today issued the following statement opposing the nomination of Gina Haspel to be Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA):
 
“I will vote ‘no’ on the Gina Haspel nomination. While I thank Ms. Haspel for her long and dedicated service to the CIA, as a country we need to turn the page on the unfortunate chapter in the agency's history having to do with torture. Congress needs to be able to provide fully informed oversight. My questions about Ms. Hapel's role in the destruction of videotapes relevant to discussions occurring in Congress regarding the program have not been adequately answered.”
