Intel chief first Biden nominee to get Senate approval US Senate votes to confirm former CIA official Avril Haines as director of national intelligence, making her the first member of newly-inaugurated President Joe Biden's cabinet to gain approval

Today in the Senate Intel Committee, DNI nominee Avril Haines and I discussed the importance of taking a long-term view of competition with China and orienting the intelligence community to meet this threat. I look forward to working with her to reestablish US global leadership.

Why Isn't the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!

Let this sink in. Today, Senate Intel found Russia interfered in our election w/ a preference for . Yet, leaders were in Moscow cozying up w/ Russians and Trump wants a private meeting with Putin. If they can’t confront Russia, shouldn’t they just stay?

Senate Intel subpoenas . He’s already testified for 25 hours. But they’re bringing him back based on Michael Cohen’s testimony, a guy who lied to Congress, came back, and lied 7 more times! This is ridiculous. Mueller found no collusion. It’s time to move on.

When are the people of this country going to wake up to the fact that this president is a disgusting liar, documented to have lied over 8,000 times in 2 yrs? Add to that his recent, blatant lies on our nation's intel chiefs' testimony in the US Senate. Past time for impeachment!
