Acting national intelligence chief resigning at end of August

Washington (CNN) - 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.
