Fox News reports:

The Senate voted to confirm Avril Haines as director of National Intelligence, making her the first woman in history to lead the intelligence community. The Senate confirmed Haines 84-10, just hours after President Joe Biden was sworn into office.

Haines had her confirmation hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday and vowed to “set a strategic vision” for the intelligence community to ensure that the U.S. is “well postured to address developing threats and take advantage of new opportunities as they arise.”
