Acting director of national intelligence will resign in August

David Gompert, the acting director of national intelligence, has informed Congress he is resigning effective the end of August regardless of whether the new nominee for the post is confirmed, a U.S. intelligence official told CNN.

The nomination of James Clapper has been delayed because of infighting over an intelligence bill.
