Senate panel likely to vote this week on CIA pick
Monday - 2/25/2013, 8:10pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee says she expects the panel to vote later this week on the nomination of John Brennan to be director of the CIA.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Monday the White House has agreed to provide the committee with information about the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. Republicans had demanded the records as a condition of moving forward with Brennan's confirmation.
But Feinstein said the Obama administration has not responded to the committee's request for more details about the classified legal opinions that justify using unmanned spy planes to kill al-Qaida suspects overseas, including American citizens.
Feinstein said she anticipates the committee will vote Thursday on Brennan's nomination.
