An official in the Trump White House mocked Senator John McCain's brain cancer during a closed-door strategy meeting after the storied Arizona Republican announced his opposition to Gina Haspel's nomination to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.

The Kentucky senator was in Louisville, at Angel's Envy Distillery, to speak to a group of entrepreneurs bringing a high-powered lineup of investors and business leaders to Louisville.

"She's really an accomplished person", Graham told reporters Thursday on Capitol Hill after his statement announcing his support. John McCain's battle with brain cancer during an internal meeting Thursday.

"However", McCain continued, "Ms. Haspel's role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing". Interrogators who didn't work directly for Haspel even engaged in a miniature revolt over torture that they considered egregious.

McCain is not expected to return to Washington to cast a vote on her nomination. "John McCain fought for us in Vietnam, was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, came home and dedicated his life to public service".

McCain, who has remained in Arizona after last month undergoing an operation to treat an intestinal infection related to diverticulitis, issued a statement Wednesday encouraging colleagues to oppose the nomination of longtime CIA operative Gina Haspel to be the agency's director. Sadler did not respond to request for comment but another source familiar briefed The Hill that she called daughter Meghan McCain to apologize. While not confirmed, Cindy McCain made her feelings clear in a tweet shortly after the reports surfaced.

We urge them to reset those priorities, and support Haspel as Pompeo's worthy successor. "I like people that weren't captured", he said. John McCain of Arizona, was unconvinced by Haspel's assurances and dealt a symbolic blow to her nomination. But as I have argued many times, the methods we employ to keep our nation safe must be as right and just as the values we aspire to live up to and promote in the world'. Joe Manchin - a democrat from Trump-friendly West Virginia - faces a tough race for re-election this November and appears poised to side with the president over his party on Haspel. "Most of all, I know the use of torture compromises that which most distinguishes us from our enemies, our belief that all people, even captured enemies, possess basic human rights, which are protected by worldwide conventions the USA not only joined, but for the most part authored".

President Donald Trump has mocked McCain in the past, while McCain has criticized the president and his policies.
