As the National Intelligence Manager for East Asia, I work for the Director of National Intelligence and am responsible for integrating the Intelligence Community’s collection, analysis, counter-intelligence and budgetary approach for East Asian issues. National Intelligence Managers also serve as the bridge between policymakers and the Intelligence Community to orient and guide collection and analytic needs. One of my key responsibilities is to identify gaps between what our policy makers need and what the Intelligence Community can provide to close these gaps. With that as my job description, I can certainly tell you that this is an interesting time to work East Asia – especially since my responsibilities include North Korea. There are few issues that garner the same level of attention at the highest levels of government – and few issues have been such a high priority throughout our recent Presidential transition. North Korea is one of the Trump Administration’s top national security priorities – just as it was for the Obama Administration.

I am very pleased that President Trump announced today his intent to nominate Susan Gordon to be the Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence (PDDNI). Sue currently serves as the Deputy Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), and she will bring a wealth of experience in the Intelligence Community and an exceptional record of leadership and innovation to the job.

(U) Chairman Grassley, Ranking Member Feinstein, distinguished members of the Committee, thank you for the opportunity to brief you today about the FISA Amendments Act (FAA), which is set to sunset at the end of this year, and particularly to discuss Section 702.
