US INTELLIGENCE CHIEF CLAPPER RESIGNS
US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has submitted his letter of resignation, he told a congressional panel on Thursday.
He told the House Intelligence Committee that “it felt pretty good”.
The 75-year-old top American spy had been expected to step aside, as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to appoint his own officials.
Analysts believe that he is sending a signal to the Trump administration that they must now speed up the transition.
