WASHINGTON, D.C. ― Jan. 26, U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), a member of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, sent a letter to President Trump urging him to read the classified version of the committee’s 2014 report on the CIA detention and interrogation program before considering the possible resumption of such activities.
Heinrich strongly supported the release of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program and backs a series of reforms to prevent the future use of torture.
The letter was led by Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark R. Warner (D-VA). U.S. Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Angus King (I-ME), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Kamala Harris (D-CA) also joined the letter.
“To avoid making the mistakes of the past, it is of the utmost importance that you familiarize yourself with, and ensure that any Executive Branch officials involved in the formation of detention and interrogation policy review, the full Committee Study,” wrote the Senators.
