Former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page tweeted that the Senate Intelligence Committee "should consider their own Witch Hunt tactics before harassing others this week" as it weighs the appointment of CIA Gina Haspel who once oversaw a black site — and Page told Axios that the comparison to torture wasn't purely hyperbole.
