President-elect Donald Trump has offered Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) the job of Central Intelligence Agency director, a move that would put a key member of the House Intelligence Committee at the helm of the spy agency.

Mr. Pompeo, a former Army officer and Harvard Law School graduate, was first elected to Congress in 2010 as part of the Tea Party movement.

He would likely bring a sharp change in tone to the CIA. Mr. Pompeo has been one of the harshest critics of the Iran nuclear deal that the U.S. and several western countries struck last year.

“I look forward to rolling back this disastrous deal with the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism,” he said on Twitter on Thursday, speaking of the Iran deal.
