CIA Director Gina Haspel, who has had an increasingly strained relationship with President Trump during the final year of his administration, announced Tuesday that she is leaving the agency.
Haspel did not articulate the reason for her departure, which comes on the last full day of Trump’s presidency, though Axios reported last week that she had threatened to resign in early December when Trump sought to install Kash Patel, a Trump loyalist and former aide to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) as her deputy.
According to Axios, Trump “spent his last year in office ruminating over Haspel,” while many of his allies echoed the president’s doubts about her loyalty.
Haspel was confirmed as the first female director of the CIA in May 2018.

“My work here is done”
I thought she was killed in a firefight in Frankfurt, Germany.
Everything has meaning this late in the game
Her allegience to deepstate has been duley noted and her efforts duley performed. That is all Gina. You are dismissed.
Pretty sure every single cabinet member and agency heads will be gone fairly soon.
Since she was shot to death during the taking of the servers in Germany, she has no choice but to resign.
First thoughts here.
Give her a “D” for doing her duty?
She probably wiped everything clean.
Who? Oh, Haspel. She finally got done ‘washing her hair’.
Forbes has been disgraceful. Fake? Who knows.
Biden already selected her replacement. Why stick around?
Time to become a lobbyist.
That’s interesting. McInerney is saying she never made it back from Germany?
Shexis probably blocking something Trump wanted released Tru p said would fire her so she resigned, knowing Trump can’t get a loyalist in place in time to do the relase.
Mr. President, too late to empty the trash.
