Did CIA Director Gina Haspel just resign a day before the Biden inauguration?

 According to a tweet from the official CIA account on Twitter:

"The #CIA workforce thanks Director Haspel for her 36 years of dedicated service to the American people. You have broken barriers and empowered the next generation of CIA officers."


FORBES: 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 loyalist and former Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) aide Kash Patel 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.
