Rand Paul Wants to Know What Gina Haspel Knows About ‘Whether the Trump Campaign Was Surveilled Upon’

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is opposing Gina Haspel over the issue of torture, but he also has some questions related to surveillance.

Appearing on Fox News this afternoon, Paul talked to Neil Cavuto about his concerns about what the CIA knows about surveillance specifically on the Trump campaign:

“Gina Haspel is the acting director of the CIA. She’s high enough up in the CIA. I think we should know what she knows about whether the Trump campaign was surveilled upon.”

He also talked about his concerns that Haspel is an “acolyte of John Brennan,” saying the former CIA chief has “become an outspoken partisan against the President in very defamatory terms.”
