President Trump just made an excellent pick for the Director of National Intelligence that will succeed current director Dan Coats. Rep. John Ratcliffe is a former U.S. Attorney and a solid conservative.
He’s been speaking out about the Mueller hoax all along (see below) and has been spot on with his commentary.
Watch for the Deep State to try their best to dig up anything they can to stop the confirmation of Ratcliffe.
A reporter connected to the Deep State has already tweeted his concerns about Ratcliffe:

Ratcliffe was in the news last week for his intense questioning of Robert Mueller. He admonished the former special counsel for not following the special counsel regulations by writing about decisions that weren’t reached:
“…respectfully, respectfully, director, it was not the special counsel’s job to conclusively Donald Trump’s innocence or to exonerate him because the bedrock principle of our justice system is a presumption of innocence. It exists for everyone. Everyone is entitled to it, including sitting presidents. And because there is a presumption of innocence, prosecutors never, ever need to conclusively determine it.”
Ratcliffe spoke with Maria Bartiromo this morning about the Mueller Report and Spygate:
President Trump tweeted out the announcement:
….be leaving office on August 15th. I would like to thank Dan for his great service to our Country. The Acting Director will be named shortly.
