The self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks has asked for permission to share information about Gina Haspel, nominee for CIA director, at her confirmation hearing.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who is held at Guantanamo Bay, has asked a judge if he can share six paragraphs of information, the New York Times says.
Mr Mohammed was tortured by the CIA following his capture in 2003.
Ms Haspel is facing a grilling from senators at the hearing.
Her nomination has faced opposition over her role at a secret CIA prison in Thailand where detainees were waterboarded in 2002.
From a political perspective, the Republicans should allow his testimony. The campaign ads in October about Democratic Senators agreeing with a 9/11 terrorist’s opinion about a nominee would be gold.
