Sen. Rand Paul's opposition to President Donald Trump's pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency drew fire Friday from both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue - first by a key Senate Republican colleague, then by the White House.

With the correction now run by the initial purveyor of false information about nominee Gina Haspel, that Rand Paul was tricked by the fake news to which America has grown accustomed in the Leftist media's and press's attempting an illegal coup against the President. If Paul becomes convinced that he's been hoodwinked, surely he'll set the record straight, as he is a principled man.

Both Cotton and Paul are unstable far-right cuckservatarian loons. That means they are both very popular and are probably going to get re-elected and continue serving our glorious and thriving country of ours! ;-D www.whitehouse.gov | www.cotton.house.gov | www.paul.senate.gov | www.cia.gov

Yet your candidate couldn't win with a stacked deck or stay on her feet. Such wisdom you possess.

Sarah Hawgabee is such a paragon of accuracy....

The CIA pick was involved in the US / Cheney junta project of "legalizing" torture. They just play word games that it wasn't torture, or they were acting on higher authority, or that there was no binding legal authority on torture, anyway. The real problem is that Obama decided not to pursue any of the relevant war criminals, whoever they may be, in the interest of not having just this sort of civil war over torture memos and programs and live subject studies and such.

Of course the fans of torture outnumber those, like Rand, with the opposite opinion, so they'll continue to evade consequences.

Brennan should be regarded as about as reliable as Sarah Hawgabee.

"Brennan withdrew his name from consideration for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the first Obama administration over concerns about his support for transferring terror suspects to countries where they may be tortured while serving under President George W. Bush."

I'm not sure what Brennan's record on speaking out against US policies to torture was. Correct me if I'm wrong - he was silent or supportive during the time he worked for the torture excusing Cheney junta.

Funny, how Brennan and other Obama co-conspirators removing a half million felons and fugitives from the gun background check roles at the FBI refuse to discuss how McCabe provably LIED to Congress. This was the reason his dualistic, conniving ass was fired.

Traitors like the liberal filth that have occupied the leadership of the FBI should be sent to Guantanamo with the rest of the traitors and combatants.

Violence isnít a sign of strength.

It is usually a sign that someone has run out of intelligent and effective options.

That seems to be what is driving so many men all over the United States to act out violently.

A woman who thinks violence is the best way to solve a problem is no better and certainly not seen as stronger.

Liberals do not understand that inefficient and poor employees in the business world are not given participation trophies or free rides, they are fired. Obama fired not one employee no matter how inept, crooked or useless they were. These traitors in the FBI and other security agencies thought Hillary was a shoe in and they had jobs for life packing their pockets.

Why should any citizen be honest with the repig controlled congress when congress has been less than truthful with the american people? Same with our illegitimate 'president.'

The cia pick is wanted in Germany for crimes against humanity. Torture is wrong no matter what country does it. She should be turned over to Germany so justice can be done!

Sure turn her in to Germany. Germany committed millions of crimes against humanity. Like I know crumbs when I see them, Germany knows crimes against humanity.

And your evidence for this is?

If you have it buried somewhere in all of those cardboard boxes you have stored in your attic you should probably pull it out and give it to the Republican congress covering Trump's ass.

I'm sure they would be delighted to see it.
