Sen. Joe Donnelly on Saturday became the second Democrat to announce he will cast his vote in favor of CIA director nominee Gina Haspel — boosting her prospects of being confirmed. Donnelly, a Democrat in a heavily Republican state that voted for Donald Trump in 2016, faces a tough reelection battle against self-described Republican outsider Mike Braun in November.
Donnelly voiced his support for Haspel on Twitter Saturday morning, saying he believes Haspel learned from the past and has the experience needed as the U.S. faces “dynamic and challenging security threats.”

The article goes on to state the following:
Haspel faced intense questioning from lawmakers on Capitol Hill this week over her time at the CIA when it used “enhanced interrogation methods” like waterboarding following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Asked if she would follow-through on an order from the president to pursue such techniques, she replied: “No, I believe CIA must undertake activities that are consistent with American values.” She did, however, not condemn the methods the CIA has used in the past as immoral.
