Mike Rogers, former chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee and a CNN commentator, will lead national security planning for Donald Trump’s presidential transition, The Detroit News reported Thursday.

The former Michigan representative is a vocal advocate of national security, intelligence and counterterrorism issues, according to the joint report by Chad Livengood, Melissa Nann Burke and Michael Gerstein.

“Few if any from Michigan will have the political clout Rogers has with the Trump administration,” Saul Anuzis, a former chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, was quoted as saying.

Rogers served in Congress for seven terms and previously worked as an FBI special agent.

He is a member of IronNet Cybersecurity‘s board of directors, Next Century‘s board of advisers and Trident Capital‘s Cybersecurity Industry Advisory Council.
