Donald Trump’s transition team has confirmed that former Sen. Dan Coates of Indiana will be the new National Director Of Intelligence.
The news comes just after the intelligence community connected Russia with the DNC hacks that leaked nearly 20,000 emails resulting in the departure of Chairwomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Mr. Trump has shared his concerns about the current environment of the intelligence community. Donald generally believes that the division works extremely hard, but its officials are often too eager to point fingers at foreign adversaries.
Some Trump opposers have wrongfully accused Trump for being soft on Russia and other suspected threats, like China. In reality, Donald is merely looking out for the nation by ensuring that all the facts are presented before Americans are forced to deal with an unwanted war. In the past, Trump has cited George Bush Jr.’s search for weapons of mass destruction as the core example of an investigation gone wrong.
“The President-elect’s top priority will be to ensure the safety of the American people and the security of the nation and he is committed to finding the best and most effective way to do it. But I want to reiterate, there is no truth to this idea of restructuring the intelligence community infrastructure, it is 100% false,” said Trump’s White House Press Secretary Sean Spencer.
Donald’s choice has shockingly been praised by some Democrats and Independents who typically bash Trump’s picks. Sen. Coats long career has proven him worthy of the position. He was the U.S. Ambassador to Germany and served in both the House and the Senate. Coates will take his chair soon and is suspected to be a close advisor to Trump during the Russian cyberattack discussions.
