This week, the Senate Intelligence Committee continued the important work of processing the President’s national security nominees. The President needs to have department heads in place so that our Intelligence Community can do all they can to keep America safe.
As Chairman, I oversaw Senator Dan Coats’ confirmation hearing to serve as Director of National Intelligence. I’m pleased to report that this week, the Intelligence Committee voted 13-2 to advance the nomination to the Senate floor.
I am confident Dan will be an excellent Director of National Intelligence and know that he will draw on his deep knowledge of intelligence issues to help the Intelligence Community address the wide range of challenges to our national security.
