President Trump has announced Texas Representative Dan Ratcliffe, the man who destroyed Mueller last week – will become his new Director of National Intelligence. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a spectacular move.
Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe will replace Dan Coats as Director of National Intelligence (DNI) after months of issues between President Donald Trump and the intelligence community.
Trump announced Sunday that Ratcliffe would replace Coats, whose last day in office will be August 15, according to Trump’s tweet. Trump and Coats have publicly butted heads during the latter’s two-year tenure as DNI.
The president has been toying with the idea of getting rid of Coats for months, sources familiar with the situation previously told the Daily Caller.
Dan Coats was a stereotypical Swamp creature, who spent nearly forty of his 76 years in elected office. Recently, he’s spent more time trashing the president than doing his actual job, so Coats’ term wasn’t going to last the year.
To give you an idea of Ratcliffe’s political ideology, he’s already hated by the right people. Everyone from back-bench Senator Chris Murphy to the (hopefully) soon-to-be-prisoner John Brennan are already trashing him.
