CIA chief Gina Haspel to brief Senate leaders on Khashoggi’s death this week

Senate leaders will be briefed this week by Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel about the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi, according to a new report.

The briefing will happen Tuesday, a move that comes after some lawmakers complained that she had not participated in a briefing last week with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, the Wall Stree Journal reports.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said in an interview with CNN that Haspel’s absence raised a “serious question as to whether this administration is giving us the whole truth.”

I wish the Dems made this much of a fuss when Hillary called off the rescue in Benghazi and let Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans die at the hands of the terrorists.
