The vote was 54 to 45, with six Democrats voting in her favor and two Republicans voting against.. She succeeds Mike Pompeo as agency director after his appointment as secretary of state.

    I hope that she does a better job than the others who weaponized the CIA and FBI against Trump and America on behalf of Obama and Soros and Clinton, etc. The people conducting the investigation today and their backers should be investigated for treason and sedition and their costly witch-hunt brought to a quick end.
