As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by Politico:

The CIA on Friday declassified a 2011 disciplinary memo that concludes Gina Haspel “acted appropriately” regarding the destruction of videotapes showing brutal interrogations of detained terrorist suspects — a move aimed at assisting her embattled nomination to lead the spy agency.

The memo, written by then-CIA deputy director Michael Morell, confirms that Haspel drafted a cable directing the destruction of more than 90 interrogation tapes but did so on the orders of her then-supervisor, former CIA clandestine service director Jose Rodriguez.

The article goes on to state the following:

The destroyed tapes are a central concern of senators weighing Haspel’s nomination to be President Donald Trump’s next CIA director. Whether Friday’s declassified memo will help win over skeptical members in both parties is uncertain.
