Senator David Perdue: Gina Haspel Is Uniquely Qualified

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) votes to confirm Gina Haspel as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA):

“Gina Haspel is uniquely qualified to lead the CIA and defend the American people. For more than three decades, she has committed her life and career to protecting America’s national security interests. She has also extensively studied the myriad of threats we face today from North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China. I reviewed classified background material on Gina Haspel’s career and am comfortable with her being confirmed to lead the CIA. The women and men of our intelligence community and the American people will be well served by a proven leader like Gina Haspel.”
