WASHINGTON (CNN) – Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell has resigned effective immediately, DNI spokesman Ross Feinstein said Tuesday.

Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess, the No. 3 official in the DNI’s office, will serve as acting director until a new one is confirmed, Feinstein said.

Earlier this month, President Barack Obama nominated retired Adm. Dennis Blair to be chief of intelligence.

Blair’s confirmation hearing was held last week, and the Senate Intelligence Committee is expected to recommend approval as early as Wednesday, sending the nomination to the full Senate for a final vote.
