Everyone's least liked GOP Senator, Jeff Flake, says he's voting no on Gina Haspel's nomination.
Even Democrats have been joining the fray of individuals who say Haspel is the right person to lead our CIA.
As reported by cnn.com
Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday he will vote against Gina Haspel's nomination to be the next CIA director, becoming the third senator from President Donald Trump's own party to come out against his choice to lead the agency.
The Senate Intelligence Committee voted 10-5 behind closed doors Wednesday to send Haspel's nomination for a full floor vote, where she looks all but assured to win Senate confirmation. Two of the committee's seven Democrats had said they supported Haspel, including Virginia's Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the panel.
Haspel currently has more than enough support to win confirmation, as Warner was one of six Democrats who've announced they plan to vote to confirm her. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire became Haspel's sixth Democratic supporter shortly after Flake's announcement.
Flake's no vote follows Kentucky's Republican Sen. Rand Paul, who also said he'd oppose the nomination, and Arizona's GOP Sen. John McCain, who released a statement asking senators to vote against Haspel but is unable to vote himself because he's in his home state battling cancer.
Most likely this is just more resistance to anything President Trump does or tries to accomplish. Flake announced he wouldn't be running for re-election because of Trump being president, but most feel it's due to the fact that he had lost all his support from the voters.
Here's what others are saying.
