Yankees righty Domingo German had a no hitter going through six innings against the Indians on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
But manager Aaron Boone pulled him before the seventh inning, putting in reliever Dellin Betances with the score knotted at 0-0.
Lawmakers had been pushing last month for more access to a handful of cables and other CIA material that might shed more light on Haspel’s work. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said the more material she reads about Haspel’s role in the interrogation program, including the destruction of tapes, the more unsettled she has become.
Last month, the CIA declassified an internal disciplinary review that found no fault with the performance of Haspel in the destruction of the videotapes. Haspel drafted a cable approving the destruction that her boss ultimately sent to field officers, who fed the tapes into a shredding machine. But she believed that he would first get the approval of senior CIA leaders before sending it, according to people with knowledge of the episode.
The release of the disciplinary review may persuade some lawmakers who had been undecided to support Haspel, said congressional officials tracking the nomination process.
LAST APPEARANCE: Made his fth appearance of the season in Tuesday’s win at Houston, tossing 4.0 shutout innings (4H, 1BB, 4K)…matched his longest Major League outing (also 6/17/17 at Oakland)…was the longest relief appearance by the Yankees since Bryan Mitchell (4.0IP, 0R) on 8/8/17 at Toronto.
Amid the questioning in the West Wing on Friday afternoon, Haspel told White House aides she did not want her nomination to harm the CIA. She also feared unfair attacks on her own reputation, saying that she didn’t want to be the next Ronny Jackson, one official said. Jackson, Trump’s White House doctor, withdrew his nomination to become Veterans Affairs secretary following questions regarding alleged misconduct earlier in his career.
