Cultist Who Faked Resume Again Tapped As Spy Chief

The Hill reports:

President Trump has tapped Rep. John Ratcliffe to serve as his next Director of National Intelligence (DNI), reviving an appointment of the Texas Republican that previously derailed last year.

Trump had initially appointed Ratcliffe to serve as his intelligence chief last July, but the Texas congressman withdrew from consideration weeks later amid media scrutiny that he padded his résumé as well as bipartisan concerns about his experience.

Still, Trump’s second time naming Ratcliffe suggests he is intent on having the House ally take over the helm of the intelligence community.
