President-elect Donald Trump has another job to fill, now that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has submitted his resignation.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

A government official tells FOX News that Clapper has been planning to leave the government at the end of his term and is just making it official and he told the House Intelligence Committee he's counting the days:

(Clapper) "I submitted my letter of resignation last night, which felt pretty good. I've got 64 days left."

Clapper said he believes the Russian government will continue trying to hack U.S. interests after President-elect Donald Trump is sworn in. Clapper has served as Director of National Intelligence since 2010.
