Sacked Tillerson: US must respond to Russia's behaviour

Gina Haspel will be the first female CIA director if her nomination is confirmed

Gina Haspel will be the first female CIA director if her nomination is confirmed

"I received a phone call from the president of the United States shortly after noontime from Air Force One", some three hours after Trump sent out a Tweet saying he was nominating CIA Director Mike Pompeo as secretary of state, Tillerson said.

Senior White House officials said Trump wanted his new team in place before any summit with Kim, who invited the United States president to meet by May. On the same day he jettisoned Tillerson, the president's personal assistant was escorted from the White House after his security clearance was revoked - and promptly was given a senior job with Trump's re-election campaign. With Mike Pompeo, we have a very similar thought process.

Pompeo lavished Haspel with praise when he selected her as his number two at the agency.

"Gina is an exemplary intelligence officer", Pompeo said at the time.

Between 2003 and 2005, Haspel oversaw a secret CIA prison in Thailand where terror suspects Abu Zubayadah and Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri were waterboarded, current and former US intelligence officials said. But Feinstein isn't the only one who should wait for a while before deciding how to view Haspel's selection.

It's no secret that Tillerson and Trump had a combative relationship.

"Over the past year I've had issues with how Secretary Tillerson has handled Russian Federation and managed the State Department", Sen.

Former colleagues also point to her experience both with Russian Federation during the end of the Cold War, and with the agency's counterterrorism efforts following the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Some key lawmakers have also come out in favor of Haspel's nomination. "I made that decision by myself, Rex wasn't, as you know, in the country".

"Mike and Gina have worked together for more than a year, and have developed a great mutual respect", Trump said.

Pompeo said in a statement that "I look forward to guiding the world's finest diplomatic corps in formulating and executing the president's foreign policy".

There has also been criticism of Haspel's alleged involvement in the destruction of video evidence documenting some of the interrogations.

"This is going to reopen wounds from a decade and more ago, and also invite more oversight of both our analyses and our activities, especially if Gina is confirmed", said one USA official, speaking on condition of anonymity. Gina Haspel, the veteran CIA undercover officer President Donald Trump picked yesterday to head the agency, is supported by many in the U.S. intelligence community but has faced criticism for overseeing a secret CIA prison in Thailand where detainees were tortured. "Current U.S. law is clear in banning enhanced interrogation techniques". Then-CIA Director John Brennan in 2013 named her deputy director of National Clandestine Service, but she was denied a permanent promotion in the face of congressional opposition. But the rights group's allegations against Haspel remain part of a preliminary investigation that German authorities could revive if they receive evidence that any of the parties have links to Germany. "To allow someone who had a direct hand in this illegal, immoral and counterproductive program is to willingly forget our nation's dark history with torture".

On Tuesday, some US intelligence officials said reports of her alleged involvement in interrogations involving torture were false. "The next step would be the issuance of an arrest warrant for her".

In fact, with Pompeo at the State Department, the odds of the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un even happening will likely decrease.

The Broncos are coming off a 5-11 season that included quarterbacks Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler at starter. Keenum played in two fewer games than Cousins past year and finished just 546 yards behind the former Washington quarterback.

"There has been an increase of utilization of Central Intelligence Agency for drone strikes", Stohl said. "If Ms. Haspel seeks to serve at the highest levels of USA intelligence, the government can no longer cover up disturbing facts from her past".
