BREAKING: The Senate Intelligence Committee voted 10 – 5 to move forward with the confirmation of Gina Haspel for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The full U.S. Senate is expected to vote on her nomination as early as this week.

All 8 Republicans and 2 of the 7 Democrats on the committee voted in support for Ms. Haspel. The remaining 5 Democrats opposed her nomination. However, with Red State Democrats under pressure for re-election, Ms. Haspel already picked up enough crossover support in the U.S. Senate and appears on a path to confirmation.
