Trump Picks Ex-Senator, Banned From Russia, As His Intelligence Chief

President-elect Donald Trump has selected former Indiana Sen. Dan Coats to be director of national intelligence, according to a statement from President-elect Donald Trump's transition team.

In choosing Coats, he is getting a veteran Washington establishment figure — a senator, former lobbyist and ambassador to Germany — with a rare distinction: being banned from Russia.

Coats' views on Russia after its annexation of Crimea, and his calls for stronger sanctions as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, landed him and other senators on Russia's banned list.


The "banned from Russia" part had me rolling!

Got buyers remorse yet?? :lol: #-o
Trump would be a joke IMHO and the joke would be on us.........again!

I know quite a few people staring to experience "buyers remorse".

Between his cabinet picks and broken promises people are starting to wonder.

I got this from a neighbor who voted for him:

"The Pentagon is changing the nuclear code to over 140 characters, so Trump can't tweet it."

You guys crack me up. Perhaps you should try to get your info from non anti-Trump outlets that can't help but spread ridiculous fear and propaganda.
