WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Representative Mike Pompeo has formally accepted the nomination by President-elect Donald Trump to be the next director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the congressman’s office said in a statement Friday.

"I am honored to have been given this opportunity to serve and to work alongside President-elect Donald J. Trump to keep America safe," the statement quoted Pompeo as saying. "I also look forward to working with America’s intelligence warriors, who do so much to protect Americans each and every day."

At least eleven politicians have been tapped to join US President-elect Donald Trump's team amid speculation that dealing with the line-up will be no easy task, according to the Russian online newspaper Gazeta.r - Sputnik International

Pompeo, a Republican, called his decision to lead the CIA "difficult” because he enjoys his current job representing part of the state of Kansas in the House of Representatives.

A US Army veteran who graduated from the service’s military academy, West Point, Pompeo serves on two House committees – Intelligence, and Energy and Commerce.

His nomination is subject to review by the US Senate, where Republicans have a majority.
