Haspel Secures Votes to Be Confirmed Next CIA Director

President Trump’s nominee to be the next director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Gina Haspel, secured the votes needed to be confirmed on Tuesday, after receiving support from two more Senate Democrats.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) announced that he will support Haspel’s nomination, after Haspel sent him a letter saying that the CIA “never should have detained terrorist suspects or employed brutal interrogation techniques against them.”

Following Warner’s announcement, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) announced that she will also support Haspel nomination.

Haspel would be the first female CIA director in American history.
