Confirmation For Biden’s National Intelligence Chief Abruptly Postponed

The first con­fir­ma­tion hear­ing for one of Pres­i­dent-elect Joe Biden’s cru­cial cab­i­net posts has been abrupt­ly resched­uled, the rank­ing mem­bers of the Sen­ate Intel­li­gence Com­mit­tee said on Thursday.

Biden announced in Novem­ber that Avril Haines, who held top nation­al secu­ri­ty jobs under for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Oba­ma, would become his direc­tor of nation­al intel­li­gence in his admin­is­tra­tion. The vir­tu­al hear­ing was sched­uled for Fri­day but was postponed.

A Repub­li­can Sen­ate aide told NBC News that there is no resched­uled date yet for the post­poned hear­ing, but the delay occurred in part because mem­bers want­ed to be able to attend in person.
