Citing “slander and libel” by the “lamestream media” targeting Congressman John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), US President Donald Trump says he will appoint someone else to head the Office of Director of National Intelligence. Ratcliffe is being treated “very unfairly” by the media, Trump tweeted on Friday. The Texas congressman agreed to stay in the House of Representatives after Trump explained how “miserable it would be for him and his family to deal with these people” for months, according to the president. “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,” Ratcliffe tweeted on Friday. Trump said he intends to nominate someone else to the DNI post “shortly.”
