WASHINGTON — Sue Gordon, a career CIA official who is serving as the principal deputy director of national intelligence, told the White House she would leave her job today after she learned she would be passed over as director of national intelligence, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter.

President Donald Trump confirmed that Gordon would be leaving on Twitter this evening, not long after Bloomberg News was the first to report her departure.

I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

WOW! Not even 1 day of notice to give them time to screen a replacement for her!
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!

Maybe she's really pizzed.  Or perhaps she was let go.

From the story....

A source with direct knowledge of the matter told NBC News that Coats had recommended that Gordon replace him but that White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told him the White House had someone else in mind.

When Coats told that to Gordon, she felt she had no choice but to hand in her resignation, the source said.
