CNN congressional correspondent Phil Mattingly says on Inside Politics that Democrats with national security experience are working hard behind the scenes to support CIA Director-designate Gina Haspel and help get her confirmed. Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim further notes that the number and stature of former Democratic national security officials who support Haspel “should be very influential” with Democrats.
DEMOCRATS DON’T WANT A WOMEN RUNNING THE CIA NEVER MIND A TOUGH WOMEN.
WOMEN IN THE @GOP HAVE BIGGER BALLS THEN THE GUYS ANY DAY
DEMS DIDN’T WANT RICK GRENELL CAUSE HE’S GAY
IF YOUR BLACK YOU CAN’T BE REP
ALOT OF DEMOCRATS RULES AGAINST UShttps://t.co/a1v34OMHHm via @YouTube

My highly respected nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, has come under fire because she was too tough on Terrorists. Think of that, in these very dangerous times, we have the most qualified person, a woman, who Democrats want OUT because she is too tough on terror. Win Gina!

Where are all the women like Feinstein, Clinton, Obama, Warren, Harris & Pelosi who reprimanded & tried to shame women b/c we refused to vote for Hillary to be the 1st woman president?
These HYPOCRITES sure aren’t supporting Gina Haspel as the 1st Director of the CIA in history. pic.twitter.com/hpbk5RioCn

Trump’s admin has been the year of the woman, hiring an astounding number of women for senior-level positions in the White House–
Democrats won’t confirm Gina Haspel because she’s “too tough on terrorists”
Democrats only support women empowerment on their terms

“There is no one more qualified to be the first woman to lead the CIA than 30+ year CIA veteran Gina Haspel. Any Democrat who claims to support women’s empowerment and our national security but opposes her nomination is a total hypocrite”
