Rep. Ratcliffe statement on decision to withdraw from consideration for DNI

(WASHINGTON – August 2, 2019) Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) released the following statement on his decision to withdraw from consideration for DNI:

“While I am and will remain very grateful to the President for his intention to nominate me as Director of National Intelligence, I am withdrawing from consideration. I was humbled and honored that the President put his trust in me to lead our nation’s intelligence operations and remain convinced that when confirmed, I would have done so with the objectivity, fairness and integrity that our intelligence agencies need and deserve. However, I do not wish for a national security and intelligence debate surrounding my confirmation, however untrue, to become a purely political and partisan issue. The country we all love deserves that it be treated as an American issue. Accordingly, I have asked the President to nominate someone other than me for this position.”

Submitted press release by Rachel Stephens, Communications Director, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas)
