US Rep Jones agrees ‘crimes worthy of prosecution’ detailed in Senate report

Republican U.S. Rep. Walter Jones has told the group NC Stop Torture Now that he thinks there are “many crimes worthy of prosecution” detailed in the Senate report on the CIA’s use of waterboarding, sleep deprivation and other harsh treatment of detainees after 9/11. Jones, a Farmville Republican, issued a statement last week on the issue after previously meeting with the advocacy group. In the statement, Jones agreed with Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News legal commentator and former state court judge in New Jersey, who said after the summary of the Senate report was released in December that there were many crimes detailed in the report that should be prosecuted.
