Rand Paul asks Haspel if she knows of any CIA surveillance of Trump

"She's high enough up in the CIA. I think we should know what she knows about whether the Trump campaign was surveilled upon"

Rand Paul has one last question for CIA director nominee Gina Haspel: Was she at all involved with any surveillance of President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign?

The Kentucky senator sent Haspel a letter on Tuesday laying out his suspicions. The missive amounts to a last-minute effort to derail Haspel before her expected confirmation by attempting to get the president’s own CIA nominee to admit to being aware of the intelligence community monitoring the president.
