THIS MORNING: Gina Haspel to be sworn-in as first woman to lead CIA

Posted: Updated:

History will be made on Capitol Hill today.

Gina Haspel will be sworn-in this morning as the new CIA director, the first woman to ever hold the position.

Haspel was confirmed last Thursday, but her nomination was a bit of a roller coaster. She faced scrutiny regarding the CIA's interrogation program and her involvement in it. Haspel has vowed that program will not restart under her leadership.

The swearing-in ceremony is set for roughly 9:30 a.m. central time.
