President Trump has tapped Rep. John Ratcliffe to serve as his next Director of National Intelligence (DNI), reviving an appointment of the Texas Republican that previously derailed last year.
I am pleased to announce the nomination of @RepRatcliffe (Congressman John Ratcliffe) to be Director of National Intelligence (DNI). Would have completed process earlier, but John wanted to wait until after IG Report was finished. John is an outstanding man of great talent!
