The Central Intelligence Agency declassified more information about Acting Director Gina Haspel’s career, including years spent leading the agency’s work on Europe and Russia, but left out details on assignments that opponents say involved overseeing the torture of terrorism subjects abroad.

A two-page CIA statement on Tuesday disclosed that Haspel -- President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the agency -- served as chief of station for the Europe division from 2014 to 2017, and previously worked as chief of staff of the directorate of operations from 2005 to 2008. She was also deputy group chief of Russian operations in the Central Eurasia division from 1998 to 2000 and received language training in Turkish and Russian.
