jeopardizing national security

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

Just weeks after attempting to block Mike Pompeo’s nomination to be Secretary of State, Brown has doubled-down on his commitment to the far-left coastal elites by voting to jeopardize national security once again. Even though Gina Haspel’s confirmation received broad, bipartisan supportand was even backed by the highest ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, Brown decided to side with his progressive base in an attempt to leave one of the country’s most important national security positions vacant.

“Though he claims to be willing to work across the aisle, Sherrod Brown 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 Brown’s decision to play partisan games in Washington – and Ohioans deserve better than that.”
