WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, released the following statement today regarding Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats:
"Dan Coats is a gold standard public servant who has always put country first. He brought deep experience and sound judgment to his critical work as Director of National Intelligence, drawing on his years as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee as well as his time as U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Dan stepped up to serve in the president’s Cabinet as DNI at a time of great peril for our nation, continuing his important work to keep America safe in a dangerous world. Bobbi and I thank Dan for his decades of service to our nation, and we send our best wishes to Dan and Marsha as they look ahead to the future."
