How in the  do we not have a DNI yet

Well, DNI is not cabinet, and cabinet gets first priority. And the dems slowed down the cabinet so much that it hasn't been until now that there is a chance to get to other appointments.
Trump said he would be Cabinet-level

Cloture vote on Coats is in progress. He's up 47-2 so far, receiving strong bipartisan support. Feinstein, Shaheen, Schatz, and Climbing Maggie have voted for him already along with a bunch of other dems.

Awesome! Can't wait to hear some more lower court nominees. Also, there is another Kentucky seat on the 6th that is still open. Somewhere, I think I heard that Bunning is the frontrunner for the other seat?

He said that he wanted to avoid creating any dangerous precedents. He'd be a good addition to the court simply to move the Judiciary away from overreaching activism and legislating from the bench. Sounds like a smart person, and he didn't actually express his personal opinion.
