A News Beat BONUS EPISODE

Just as soon as Trump selected Gina Haspel to lead the CIA, pending a Senate confirmation hearing, her critics condemned the president’s decision, saying Haspel’s role in the CIA’s brutal torture and rendition program disqualifies her for the position. Of course, Mike Pompeo, her predecessor at the agency if she is indeed confirmed, had endorsed torture in the past, just as Trump did on the campaign trail.

We talk to two former government insiders who warn about Haspel, who led a secret prisoner "black site" and covered up illegal torture.
