Doug Collins Tells Fox Business He’s Not Interested in Becoming Trump’s Director of National Intelligence

Congressman Doug Collins has told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo that he has no interest in being named Director of National Intelligence. The Georgia Republican dismissed the idea after President Donald Trump floated the possibility of offering him the job.

“It is humbling. It’s amazing to have the President think that much of you, to mention my name among others to be this position,” Collins said.

“Let me tell you right now, I know the problems in the intelligence committee. It’s not a job they that would interest me, not one that I would accept.”

Collins emphasized that he’s focusing on his Senate run this November but stressed his loyalty to the President.

“I’m running in a Senate race in Georgia,” Collins said. “They know I’m a supporter of the President. I’m running against a senator that decided to support the president four weeks before the appointment. The seat could be in jeopardy because of the flaws she has.”

“I’m a supporter of this President. I’ll continue to fight for this President. The intelligence community has to get right. I’m sure the President will pick somebody appropriate for the job.”
