CIA Director John Brennan said he disagrees with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump that waterboarding detainees advances national security investigations, and said he would resign if “the next president” ordered him to resume such controversial interrogation techniques.
Brennan said during an event at the Brookings Institution think tank on Wednesday that the next president could order expanded drone attacks or remove the ban on waterboarding, but the final decisions are up to the director of CIA and their agency colleagues. He then said if the next president wanted to resume waterboarding “they’ll have to find another director,” but did not mention Trump by name.
“I can say that as long as I’m director of CIA, irrespective of what the president says, I’m not going to be the director of CIA that gives that order,” he said.
