President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence attended CIA Director Gina Haspel’s official swearing-in at agency headquarters on Monday, overseeing the ceremony that installed a woman as the chief of American foreign intelligence for the first time.

Trump delivered remarks, praising Haspel’s courage and commitment to duty. He thanked her for her willingness to manage one of the most critical lines of defense between the United States and a hostile world.

Pence administered the oath of office as Trump looked on.

The Senate confirmed the new CIA director in a highly-contentious vote last week, with only a few Democrats joining their GOP colleagues to vote for Haspel’s nomination.
