CABINET/CIA/MIKE POMPEO: "Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein asked, if ordered by President-elect Trump, whether he would restart the CIA's use of enhanced interrogation tactics the that fall outside of the Army Field Manual.
'Absolutely not,' Pompeo responded. 'Moreover, I can't imagine I would be asked that by the President-elect.'
Later in the hearing, Pompeo was asked by Sen. Martin Heinrich of New Mexico if he would commit that to complying with the law and acknowledge that the CIA is out of the enhanced interrogation business.
'Yes, you have my full commitment,' Pompeo said.
The congressman has in the past appeared to agree with Trump on the topic, the latter of whom said he would 'absolutely' bring back waterboarding, as well as methods 'a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.' "
