[Ed. – This is the first I’ve heard of Haspel as a “Brennan acolyte.”  That doesn’t ring right, frankly.  But it’s still a valid question, and should be asked of any CIA careerist coming up for Senate confirmation.  Interesting.]

Senator Rand Paul has sent a formal letter to the Central Intelligence Agency inquiring about Gina Haspel’s involvement or coordination in possible surveillance of the Trump campaign.

Speaking to The Gateway Pundit about the letter, Senator Rand Paul’s Chief Strategist Doug Stafford explained that Haspel is a “John Brennan acolyte.” …

The letter asks for clarification about under what circumstances the CIA will trail, monitor or otherwise collect information on the communications and movements of US presidential candidates. Senator Paul asked for a response relating to candidates Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, John Kasich, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and himself.
