The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee will have a confirmation hearing next week for President Donald Trump's nominee for director of national intelligence, former Indiana senator Dan Coats.

Committe Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner announced Wednesday that the open hearing will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. Coats had been a member of the Intelligence Committee until he left the Senate early this year after not seeking re-election to the Senate in 2016.
