Senate Approves William Evanina as Intelligence Director

His nomination had been blocked nearly two years.

By a vote of 84-7 on Wednesday, the Senate approved William Evanina to be Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center.

His nomination had been blocked for nearly two years while senators waited for documents related to the investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 election campaign.

Evanina is a career intelligence professional. He has been heading the center since 2014. Congress made the position subject to Senate confirmation in 2015.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For William Evanina as he continues in his duties as the top counterintelligence person.
  • For members of the Senate who have other nominations pending that need to be decided.
