Jim Clapper has told colleagues he will remain as director of national intelligence, CNN reports.

Citing a senior U.S. official, Barbara Starr reports the intelligence community began learning of Clapper’s decision Monday and said he will stay in the DNI post for the “foreseeable future.”

President Barack Obama asked Clapper to remain, Starr reports.

Clapper will also not face a confirmation hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee as the DNI post does not have a fixed term, Starr reports.

Several other cabinet positions, notably the State and Defense posts, and the CIA will likely see new faces for President Barack Obama’s second term.

Former Sen. Chuck Hagel will reportedly be nominated defense secretary and Michael Morrell is currently serving as acting CIA director.
