President Trump's choice to lead the Office of National Intelligence is confirmed by his former Senate colleagues.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

A bipartisan 85 to 12 vote has confirmed Dan Coats to be Director of National Intelligence, a Cabinet-level position overseeing 16 U.S. intelligence agencies.

Coats was twice a Republican Senator from Indiana, serving in the 90's and then again for a term from 2011 to 2017. In between Senate terms, he served as President George W. Bush's ambassador to Germany.

The confirmation leaves three Cabinet or Cabinet-level vacancies in the new administration.
