Gina Haspel confirmed as CIA director, DNI Coats comments
On May 17, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats issued a statement on the Senate’ confirmation of Gina Haspel as CIA director.
I am delighted my former Senate colleagues voted this afternoon to confirm the nomination of Gina Haspel as CIA Director. Gina has clearly demonstrated that she is a person of high integrity with valuable frontline and executive experience as a career intelligence officer. Her confirmation represents the best we have to offer as a country. On behalf of the Intelligence Community, we salute Director Haspel, a trailblazer who today becomes the first woman to lead the CIA.
Daniel R. Coats, Director of National Intelligence
