Doug Collins won’t take over intelligence agencies for Trump: ‘Not a job that would interest me’

Published

on

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) knocked down speculation that he would take over as President Donald Trump’s director of national intelligence.

The Georgia Republican, who’s one of the president’s staunchest defenders in Congress, had reportedly been considered for the role that Trump just filled on an acting basis with German ambassador Richard Grenell.

“It’s not a job that would interest me, not one that I would accept,” Collins told Fox Business Network. “I’m running a Senate race in Georgia.”

The president was reportedly angry with his last acting director Joseph Maguire after one of his deputies told the Democratic-led House Intelligence Committee that Russia was again trying to interfere with the 2020 election on Trump’s behalf.

“Let me tell you right now, I know the problems in the Intelligence Committee,” Collins said.

But he won’t be the one to make changes sought by the president.

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

Although many of the people proposed by the administration for the garden, like Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr., are fairly universally beloved, others, like former President Ronald Reagan, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and evangelical preacher Billy Graham, are sharply partisan choices.

The White House just sent out the text of the executive order. It creates a task force to recommend how and where to create this new garden. And it specifies the statues that should be in the park (including Antonin Scalia): pic.twitter.com/fGjFbr4JtQ

The campaign was quick to note that this occurred before the president arrived in the state, that Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. would be backing out of attending the president's speech, and that they would not have any contact with him until further notice.
