UPDATED: Faith Coalition Condemns Nomination of Haspel for CIA due to Past Record on Torture
UPDATE: It is expected that the U.S. Senate will take up the nominations of Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel when they return from recess the week of April 7. Please call your Senators every single day until the vote is taken. One of California's own Senators, Diane Feinstein, is a particularly important contact - she has not said yet how she will vote! CALL SENATOR FEINSTEIN every day and URGE HER TO VOTE AGAINST GINA HASPEL on deep moral grounds. Call Feinstein's office at 202-224-3841 or 415-393-0707 to say NO to Haspel!
