Associated Press – The Senate intelligence committee has recommended that the full Senate confirm President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA. The panel voted 10-5 in favor of Gina Haspel in a closed session Wednesday.

Haspel had already picked up Democratic support and appears on a path to confirmation. The full Senate is expected to vote on her nomination as early as this week. Her nomination has renewed debate over the harsh interrogation program the CIA conducted on terror suspects after 9/11.
