President Trump's nominee for CIA director Gina Haspel has not been received well.

Her views on torture and failing to admit and answer questions  clearly about her stance on the use of torture has caused controversy.

Senator John McCain, who is recovering from brain cancer, spoke out against Haspel and warned his colleagues not to vote for her.

In a statement he said:

"I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country and has devoted her professional life to its service and defense. However, Ms. Haspel’s role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing. Her refusal to acknowledge torture’s immorality is disqualifying. I believe the Senate should exercise its duty of advice and consent and reject this nomination."
