D.C. appointment news: D.J. Myers, a former FBI agent, is hired as deputy director of the National Security Agency (NSA)

Posted February 02, 2021 05:01:19A former FBI special agent who once worked for the NSA has been hired as a deputy director for the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), according to The Associated Press.

The news comes amid a growing backlash from Congress and civil rights groups over a number of recent leaks to the media that have raised questions about how the NIA manages its classified data and how it handles sensitive information. 

A number of NIA staffers resigned after The Washington Post revealed that they had improperly accessed the agency’s highly classified data. 

The Trump administration has also appointed former FBI director James Comey to head the agency.
