The New York Post Editorial Board writes that “Democrats’ obsession with opposing President Trump on all fronts, no matter the merits, opens a new phase this week as CIA Director-designate Gina Haspel goes before the Senate Intelligence Committee.” The editors say that “Gina Haspel, quite simply, is one of Trump’s most capable and distinguished appointments.
