Caroline Krass Confirmed as CIA General Counsel

I am delighted to report that the Senate just confirmed my friend and former colleague Caroline Krass to be General Counsel at the CIA, by a vote of 95-4.  (“No” votes were Senators Cruz, Heller, Paul and Scott.)  Caroline has been a fantastic attorney in OLC and the NSC, among other government posts–she’s a longtime, devoted and indefatigable public servant–and I’m certain she’ll be a superlative CIA GC.
