Former CIA analyst and anti-war activist Ray McGovern was forcibly removed from the US Senate hearing where Gina Haspel, President Donald Trump’s nominee for CIA director, was answering questions about her record on torture. McGovern was dragged from the room by Capitol Police after demanding that Haspel answer questions put to her about the waterboarding of terror suspects at a CIA “black site” in Thailand. Before the McGovern incident, Haspel was interrupted by another lone protester. A woman, wearing a red t-shirt and shouting “Bloody Gina!” and “you are a torturer!” was also removed by police.
