President Trump announced on Sunday that Dan Coats will step down as director of national intelligence after a tenure in which the two were often at odds over Russia, North Korea and the president’s own attacks on the intelligence community.
“I am pleased to announce that highly respected Congressman John Ratcliffe of Texas will be nominated by me to be the Director of National Intelligence,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “A former U.S. Attorney, John will lead and inspire greatness for the Country he loves. Dan Coats, the current Director, will 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.”
Mr. Ratcliffe has been a staunch defender of Mr. Trump. As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, he sharply questioned Robert S. Mueller III, the former special counsel, at last week’s hearing.
Mr. Coats had long been expected to depart of his own accord, an administration official said, but he ended up staying on longer so it would not seem as if he was forced out during a time of conflict with Mr. Trump. In a meeting last week, Mr. Coats told Mr. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence that he was ready to move on.
Dan Coats is a long time Republican so he has that working against him, but at least the man took his job seriously and didn’t roll over every time Trump offered him a tummy rub.
With Coats gone the job now goes to this guy.
Ratcliffe looks like the guy in every movie whose wife is definitely going to bang the leading man, and the audience is going to erupt in applause when she does.
But instead of being a cuck to his wife, Ratcliffe is going to be the cuck while Trump fucks the whole country.
You know that somewhere Vladimir Putin is smiling to himself about how well his plan has finally come together.
Yeah, exactly like that.
