Intel Probe Puts CIA’s Haspel in a Bind
The chair of CIA director Gina Haspel, who was promoted by John Brennan and Michael Hayden, is getting warmer, according to Politico
Haspel was the CIA’s station chief in London in 2016 when the U.S. Embassy there was made aware of Mifsud’s contact with a Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, by Australian diplomat Alexander Downer. Haspel was briefed on Downer’s outreach to the embassy, according to a person familiar with the matter.
