Sen. Warner pans Trump pick for acting DNISen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, quickly panned President Trump's decision to name Richard Grenell, the current U.S. ambassador to Germany, to serve as the next acting director of national intelligence.

“The President has selected an individual without any intelligence experience to serve as the leader of the nation’s intelligence community in an acting capacity," Warner said in a statement.

He added that Grenell will be Trump's second acting DNI since Dan Coats, who was easily confirmed by the Senate, stepped down last year. Joseph Maguire has served in the role since August but is required by law to leave the position by March 12.
