Jones’ quickly discovers that the nation's intelligence agency has destroyed mountains of evidence, skirted the law, and hid secrets from the public.
“Everything they got from him was either a lie or something they already had,” says Jones in the trailer of waterboarding techniques. “If it works, why do you need to do it 183 times?,” replies Feinstein.
