Gina Haspel, President Trump’s nominee to become the first woman to lead
the Central Intelligence Agency, made her career in covert action, but her
involvement in controversial interrogations has already provoked Senate
opposition to her confirmation.

Haspel, who joined the CIA in 1985, earned high-level awards during her
career and was sworn in as deputy director of the agency on Feb. 7, 2017.
In that post, she assists managing intelligence collection, analysis,
covert action and counterintelligence.
