Top intel community lawyer to resign in March

The general counsel of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence Jason Klitenic will leave his post in early March, a spokesman for the agency told Politico on Tuesday.

It, however, remains unclear why Klitenic - whose decision to block the whistleblower's complaint put in motion the impeachment inquiry into President Trump - has decided to depart the agency.

In a letter explaining his decision at the time, Klitenic told Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson that due to the fact that the complaint did not concern members of the intelligence community it was not authorized for congressional disclosure.
