President Trump’s nominee to be the next director of the CIA, Gina Haspel, faced questions from a Senate committee today. Among those asking questions (and perhaps grandstanding a bit ahead of a possible 2020 run) was California Sen. Kamala Harris, who was insisting Haspel answer a particular question with simply “yes” or “no”:

Give it a rest, senator:
"I'm not asking do you believe they were legal, I'm asking do you believe they were immoral," is an interesting distinction coming from someone who supports the dismemberment of babies at any stage of pregnancy https://t.co/sixTc2UezQ

If only somebody could sit Harris down for a grilling and demand a similar answer from HER.
Kamala Harris supports late-stage elective abortion. It's an interesting contrast, all I'm saying. https://t.co/UXhvVRI1Pr

@KamalaHarris believes it’s OK to abort a baby up until 5 minutes before birth, and she wants to grill someone on the distinction between “illegal” and “immoral”?!?
That’s rich indeed. https://t.co/avKDLRcfVQ
