The Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday voted 10-5 in favor of Gina Haspel to be the next director of the CIA, setting up her expected Senate confirmation later this month.

"Gina Haspel is the most qualified person the president could choose to lead the CIA and the most prepared nominee in the 70-year history of the agency,” said Commitee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C. "I’m pleased to see the committee favorably report her nomination to the full Senate, and I look forward to her swift confirmation."

Haspel found bipartisan support after weeks of debate over her role overseeing enhanced interrogation techniques used by the agency more than a decade ago. The committee's top Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, voted for her.
