Michael Reagan: Dems Using Haspel as 'Culprit' for 9/11 Tactics

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

By    |   Tuesday, 15 May 2018 08:16 PM

Political commentator Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that Gina Haspel's nomination for CIA chief has become politicized because Democrats want to find a "culprit" for the torture techniques used after the 9/11 attacks.

"We all knew that was going to happen, the way politics is today," the eldest son of former President Ronald Reagan told "Newsmax Now" host John Bachman in an interview.

"The Democrats trying to find anything they can to upset the apple cart of the president of the United States."

Haspel was endorsed Tuesday by Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, after writing him to say she now believed that the interrogation program used then was a mistake.

"When you think about it," Reagan told Bachman. "I was for it before I was against it.

"Back on 9/11, everybody was for it," he added, referring to those methods. "Now, we're against it.

"We look back at what was going on — and we're trying to hold somebody accountable for what was legal and what everybody wanted to have done, to find the culprit."
