jeopardizing national security

Tina Smith 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, Smith has doubled-down on her 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, Smith 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, Tina Smith has not shied away from opposing President Trump’s agenda at every opportunity,” said NRSC Spokesman Michael McAdams. “Opposing Haspel’s eminently qualified nomination is yet another example of Smith’s decision to play partisan games in Washington – and Minnesotans deserve better than that.”
