Dan Coats is expected to step down as the Intelligence Chief in the nearest future, US media reported on Sunday. President Donald Trump is likely to tap John Ratcliffe, a Texas Republican Rep. to replace the outgoing official.
The change at the helms of the US intelligence appears to have been brewing for some time already. Coats has Told Trump about his decision to “step down fairly soon” last week, Reuters reported, citing a “source with direct knowledge.”
At the same time, US President has been already seeking a replacement for Coats and reportedly met Ratcliffe to discuss the details of the job, Axios and the New York Times reported.
