The former head of intelligence law for the National Security Agency is joining forces with the Senate Intelligence Committee for the investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election.
April Doss spent over 10 years at the NSA as an attorney and currently chairs the Cybersecurity and Privacy practice at Saul Ewing, LLP. She will be using her legal experience in a full-time position with the Senate committee.
According to Business Insider, Doss was brought on to aid in the Russia probe but will not be leading any operations. Her position officially begins May 1.
Doss’ hire comes in the middle of a standstill for the probe, at least on the public-facing side. The Intelligence Committee has been reportedly suffering from internal relations and has been unable to move further with the investigation.
