After Waiting Until Last Moment, McCaskill Votes Against Haspel for CIA

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) didn’t tell her constituents how she would vote on Gina Haspel, President Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA, before the Thursday vote in the U.S. Senate.

When it came time to vote, though, McCaskill voted no on Haspel.

Her explanation for voting against a woman that other intelligence officials said was right for the job? She can’t tell you.

McCaskill’s silence and evasiveness on the issue may trouble Missouri voters going to the polls this fall.

Her opponent, Attorney General Josh Hawley (R-MO), noted as much in his response to McCaskill’s no vote.
