TRUMP'S PICK FOR DCIA WILL ASK FOR TORTURE AND MORE DATA COLLECTION

Some Democrats want to delay the confirmation vote for President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the CIA, after Rep. Mike Pompeo left the door open to returning to harsh interrogation techniques, and collecting massive amounts of American data.

In newly released written answers to lawmakers’ queries, the Kansas Republican says if confirmed, he’ll ask if the CIA feels current interrogation techniques are producing results—and if not, he’ll consider asking for changes. He also says if CIA officers tell him that recent legal limits on data collection, passed after the Snowden leaks, are making it harder for them to do their jobs, he’ll recommend changes there too.
