‘Wanted’: Senate confirms John Brennan as CIA director

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday said the Senate should confirm Brennan as the CIA director “given his work on the cyber threats.”

McCain, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, told The Hill Brennan has “done a lot of good work” in the CIA, but he also said that he would not support the confirmation.

“The last thing I would do is confirm a man who was part of the commission on the Cyber Threat Assessment that said ‘we need to have a plan for countering cyber-enabled crime,'” McCain said.

McCain was asked about Brennan’s nomination by a reporter who asked whether the senator thinks Brennan would do a good job as the new CIA director.

“I think that’s the question that I’ve been asked,” McCain said, noting that the White House and the CIA have been working on a cybersecurity strategy.

In a statement, Pompeo said the Trump administration “rejects the notion that we should give up the hard work that John Brennan has done to help protect the nation from cyber threats, and is focused on working with the Congress to strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity capabilities.” “

John Brennan is going to do a lot better than [CIA Director] Mike Pompeo, I would think, and I think that he’s going to be a great president.”

In a statement, Pompeo said the Trump administration “rejects the notion that we should give up the hard work that John Brennan has done to help protect the nation from cyber threats, and is focused on working with the Congress to strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity capabilities.”

The Senate has been conducting a series of cybersecurity briefings this week.

Sen. Rand Paul (R, Ky.) said Thursday that the Senate needs to get a cyber strategy in place “right away,” saying the committee “should not be focusing on cyber in a way that’s adversarial.”

Paul also said the CIA should be given more power to develop and implement cyber strategy, saying the CIA is the “agency that has done the most work in the intelligence community” on cyber.

Paul was asked by The Hill whether Brennan should be considered a cybersecurity expert.

“Well, if he’s doing it for the good of the nation, then he’s a cybersecurity guy,” he said.

“But he’s not going to help us with that if he has to be in the shadows and in a safe environment.”
