Renewed Concerns that UK 'Lobbied' US on CIA Torture Report

Documents obtained by human rights organization Reprieve have revealed that in the 12 months prior to the Senate report’s release, senior members of the British government had five previously undisclosed meetings with Senator Marco Rubio, who had publicly stated his opposition to the report's publication.
