The White House national security adviser said that the Guantanamo Bay detention center could be closed by January as scheduled Sunday. “I’m confident we will be able to meet that deadline,” Jim Jones told Fox News’ Chris Wallace.

Appearing on the same program, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell disagreed with the decision to close the detention center. “This is a program that’s not broke and doesn’t need fixing,” he said.
