Claire McCaskill is dodging questions on how she plans to vote on Gina Haspel’s nomination as CIA Director this afternoon:
My colleague @lesleyclark caught up with McCaskill in the hallway on Captiol Hill to ask the Missouri Democrat whether she's decided to support Haspel's nomination. "I'm not going to talk about it," she said. https://t.co/3hV5ByxxhL

Haspel is likely to be confirmed as a handful of Democrats have voiced their support for her nomination. Editorial Boards of the New York Post, USA Today, and Chicago Tribune have also praised her qualifications. McCaskill needs to put partisan politics aside and do what is best for our national security interests and vote to confirm Gina Haspel.
