jeopardizing national security

Claire McCaskill just voted to oppose Gina Haspel’s nomination to be the first woman to lead the CIA.

With her vote against Haspel, who has been called the most qualified person ever nominated to head the CIA, McCaskill has doubled-down on her commitment to the far-left coastal elites by voting to jeopardize national security. Even though Gina Haspel’s confirmation received broad, bipartisan support and was even backed by the highest ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, McCaskill decided to side with her progressive base in an attempt to leave one of the country’s most important national security positions vacant.

“Though she claims to be willing to work across the aisle, Claire McCaskill has not shied away from opposing President Trump’s agenda at every opportunity,” said NRSC Spokesman Bob Salera. “Opposing Haspel’s eminently qualified nomination is yet another example of McCaskill’s decision to play partisan games in Washington – and Missourians deserve better than that.”
