She’s expected to be given a positive recommendation from the committee, and will then likely face a full Senate vote sometime next week.
Haspel — who would replace now-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the role — has gotten support from lawmakers on the left.
She had her testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee last week, which was widely seen as a positive performance.
