Newsroom

Thank you, Attorney General Sessions for your kind introduction. It is an honor to join you today and to be a part of this veteran’s appreciation ceremony.

Our top-notch intelligence collection tells me this is the 7th year running that you have held this event at the Department of Justice – which I think is a wonderful way to honor the more than 28,000 veterans (25% of DOJ workforce) that work across the DOJ.

The Intelligence Community’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and ally group "IC Pride" won a major award at Out & Equal's annual summit in Philadelphia last month. The “Outie” award for Employee Resource Group of the Year recognizes organizations as leaders in advancing global workplace equality for LGBT employees. IC Pride—which unifies LGBTA resources from across all 17 IC agencies and elements—beat Fortune 500 peer groups, including Comcast NBC Universal, Deutsche Bank, Verizon, and AT&T.

Consistent with 50 U.S.C. 3306(b), the Director of National Intelligence is disclosing to the public, not later than 30 days after the end of the fiscal year, the aggregate amount of funds appropriated by Congress to the National Intelligence Program for Fiscal Year 2017.

Good morning. Thank you, Dr. Brothers for that introduction. And thank you to everyone in the audience today for the work you do to keep our country safe.
We all recognize that our government’s most basic responsibility is to protect its citizens. But we don’t do it alone. We do it in partnership with the private sector, with academia, and with foreign governments. So I’m glad to see you all assembled for this week’s conference.
