Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is asking President Donald Trump’s pick for CIA director whether she was aware of surveillance conducted against any presidential candidates in the run-up to the 2016 election.

“I write to ask you for clarification on some of the practices of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), particularly in relation to surveillance during the 2016 presidential election,” Paul wrote to Gina Haspel, acting CIA director.

“Under what circumstances does the CIA trail, monitor, or otherwise collect information on the communications and movements of U.S. presidential candidates, both domestically and while they are traveling outside of the United States?” The Republican asked.

Haspel has faced a tough battle through the confirmation process, largely because of her past work at a CIA site where terror suspects were tortured. Paul and his fellow Republican, Arizona Sen. John McCain, have said they oppose Haspel’s confirmation. But she is likely to be confirmed anyway since several Democrats have said they will support her.
