The deputy director of national intelligence, Sue Gordon, will resign this month along with her boss, President Donald Trump said.

Trump said in a tweet that Gordon will leave her job Aug. 15, the same day as the nation’s top intelligence official, Dan Coats. Gordon would have been next in line to serve as acting director in the position until the Senate confirmed Trump’s choice for a permanent replacement.
