Sigal P. Mandelker, President Donald J. Trump’s pick to be Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI), is being lauded by former officials contacted by The Cipher Brief.  

The Senate Banking Committee has not set a date for hearings, but if confirmed, Mandelker would head the office that oversees the Treasury’s use of intelligence, sanctions and other tools to combat such security threats as terrorism, WMD proliferation, narcotics, and money laundering.

The position receives relatively little attention but is responsible for critical tools to combat terrorism and protect national security.
