Block Nomination of Torturer Gina Haspel

OFFICIAL ACTION for Wednesday, May 2

Don’t forget to fill out our call log so that we can track our impact: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Gina Haspel was in charge of a secret prison in Thailand during the Bush administration. The prison was one of the now-infamous CIA “black sites” that held men who were kidnapped, secretly detained, interrogated and tortured. There’s still a lot we don’t know—the CIA continues to hide key details about its secret detention and torture program. But we know enough to conclude that Gina Haspel is a torturer, destroyed the evidence, and is unfit to lead the CIA.

Let's call our Senators and let them know we want them to oppose her nomination, right now, strongly, and publicly. We want them to vote against her, and do everything they can to block progress on her nomination and persuade their fellow Senators to do the same.

Sen. Patty Murray: DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell: DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Sample Script

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I'm calling about Gina Haspel’s nomination as head of the CIA. I want Senator [name] to immediately and publicly commit to opposing this nomination, and do everything she can to persuade her fellow Senators do the same. Gina Haspel carried out torture and destroyed the evidence. She is completely unqualified to lead the CIA. Will Senator [name] oppose her?"
