Coats Statement on Brennan Nomination to Serve as CIA Director


Location: Washington, DC

Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, issued the following statement regarding the nomination of John Brennan to serve as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA):

"The Senate and House Intelligence Committees are the only significant check and balance on the intelligence activities of the U.S. government. I have repeatedly expressed my concerns about national security leaks under this administration and the withholding of key documents from the committee. However, after lengthy personal and committee meetings with John Brennan as well as the review of hundreds of pages of released documents, a sufficient number of my concerns have been addressed. Brennan's nomination should be moved from the committee for debate and a vote by the full Senate."

The Senate Intelligence Committee approved Brennan's nomination today. His nomination now heads to the full Senate for consideration.
