Key Senate Republican McCain signals he will push back on Trump
Trump also added that he "wants to do everything within the bounds of what you're allowed to do legally" when it comes to enhanced interrogation techniques.
If President Donald Trump decides to sign the order, his administration would also have the authority reverse a directive issued by Obama that provides the International Committee of the Red Cross with access to detainees in American custody, according to the New York Times.
Back in November Trump said his now Defense Secretary James Mattis convinced him to tone down his position on torture, but some now fear the executive order will usher in a new era of terror tactics.
From his former post on the House Intelligence Committee, Pompeo condemned the Obama administration rules limiting government interrogators to techniques in the field manual - regulations that are up for review this year.
The order reportedly includes a continuation for the use of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.
Access to affordable health care is essential
A replacement for Obamacare would require 60 votes in Senate, which means some Democrats would have to get on board. Collins added, "I believe there has been a sea change in attitudes on how we should approach this dilemma".
The order also specifies that US law should be obeyed, and rejects the use of "torture".
The Senate passed an amendment in 2015 from Mr McCain that banned torture interrogation techniques, yet President Trump said on the campaign trail that he was in favour of waterboarding and a "hell of a lot worse". John McCain, R-Ariz., vowed in his confirmation hearing to abide by the Army Field Manual.
The document is just one of several national security orders that Trump intends to sign in the coming days, including naming the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation and ordering the construction of the Mexican border wall.
"The president can sign whatever executive orders he likes", McCain, who was captured and tortured during his Navy service in Vietnam, said in a statement.
One intelligence insider who asked not to be identified by name because he was not authorized to discuss the issue said subsequent divulging of the existence of black sites embarrassed some of the nations that hosted them, making re-establishment of the practice hard. "I'm deeply aware that any changes to that will come through Congress", he said.
The draft, titled "Detention and Interrogation of Enemy Combatants", copies of which were obtained by the Associated Press and the Washington Post, would revoke former President Barack Obama's decision to ban torture techniques and end the Central Intelligence Agency program that allowed "interrogation of high-value alien terrorists to be operated outside the United States".
