Rep. Schiff Statement on Nomination of Ambassador Bill Burns for CIA Director

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement on the nomination of Ambassador William Burns for director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA):

“The nomination of Ambassador Bill Burns as Director of the CIA is another superb choice by President-Elect Joe Biden. As a senior diplomat, Ambassador Burns has worked closely with the Intelligence Community for decades, and understands their mission and the needs of policymakers. From my experience working directly with Ambassador Burns, I have no doubt that he understands the IC’s core ethos of speaking truth to power, and I believe that our nation will be more secure and better prepared to confront the threats we face thanks to his service.”
