"If the Senate can declassify this report, we will be able to ensure that an un-American, brutal program of detention and interrogation will never again be considered or permitted," she said in March.

Hayden cited this comment on Sunday, according to the Washington Post.

"That sentence -- that motivation for the report -- may show deep, emotional feeling on the part of the senator, but I don't think it leads you to an objective report," Hayden said, as recorded by the Washington Post.

Hayden added that people haven't seen what is in the report yet, despite comments and leaks about the contents of the investigation.
