Rounds still undecided on Haspel as CIA Director

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – The U.S. Senate may vote on the nomination of Gina Haspel as the next CIA Director before the Memorial Day break.

She has been tied to allegations of CIA backed torture during the Iraq war.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds says he hasn’t made a decision yet.

Rounds says there are still questions about her role in the alleged torture.

Rounds says her overall qualifications are sound.

Some Democratic Senators have said they will support her nomination, while some Republicans are opposed.
