Retired CIA man brutalized at CIA director confirmation hearing

Warning: police violence—— Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst and whistleblower, spoke out during Gina Haspel’s CIA director confirmation hearing against her participation in the agency rendition and torture program. He was brutalized by police who ripped him out of the hearing room and while he shouted that they had dislocated his arm they continued to shove him into the ground. This violent suppression of peaceful protest is unconscionable!!! #BlockHaspel

McGovern is a leader in the group called VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity). He is a former US Army infantry/intelligence officer, 27-year CIA analyst and CIA Presidential briefer (retired).
