From RT:

The Trump-appointed director of the CIA, Gina Haspel, has left her post after 36 years with the intelligence agency, announcing her resignation on Tuesday – a day ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

In a statement posted to Twitter by the CIA, Haspel said she was “deeply proud of the work [she and the CIA] have done together,” which – while largely classified – allegedly included running one of the agency’s notorious “black site” prisons.

She was appointed director of the CIA in 2018, replacing Mike Pompeo, who had been promoted to Secretary of State.

While Haspel reportedly threatened to resign last month as President Donald Trump prepared to name Kash Patel, former aide to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as her deputy, the plan was apparently cancelled at the last minute when she got wind of it. Trump had apparently grown to distrust Haspel, who had worked as London CIA station chief under former agency director John Brennan.
