Tell Schumer vote NO to Gina Haspel
This coming Wednesday, there will be a vote on whether Gina Haspel should become the leader of the CIA.
We need to urge Senator Schumer to vote NO to Gina Haspel's nomination to lead the CIA.
Gina Haspel personally helped torture detainees in a secret CIA-run prison during the Bush administration. She then made sure the video evidence was destroyed.
It isn't clear whether Schumer is currently a Yes or a No, but he needs to hear from his constituents that we are a NO. He needs to hear from us.
Caller: Hi, My name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [part of state] calling about Gina Haspel’s nomination as head of the CIA. I want Senator Schumer to immediately and publicly commit to opposing this nomination. Gina Haspel carried out torture and destroyed the evidence. She is completely unqualified to lead the CIA. Will Senator Schumer oppose her?
Senators can read classified details about Gina Haspel's time in the CIA that are not available to the public. It is critical that Senators take advantage of this opportunity by reviewing these materials; demand that they review Gina Haspel's record:
Caller: There is a tranche of classified documents available to senators with more information about Haspel's background. Has the senator read those documents yet? If not, why not?
Several Senators have remarked that reading the file disturbed them, and I think it is critically important that the Senator is fully informed about Gina Haspel's career before voting on her confirmation.
