DNI Coats Statement on 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
