U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo says he has been named to the House intelligence committee overseeing national security.

The Kansas Republican said in a news release Friday that House Speaker John Boehner is putting him in the committee that provides oversight of the U.S. intelligence community. That includes the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency and the Military Intelligence Program.

Pompeo says he is honored to serve on the committee at a time when the nation faces great challenges abroad. He says he has great faith in the nation's intelligence services and is excited to work with them to ensure Americans' national security.

The second-term congressman says his legal background will be an asset to the committee in ensuring a constitutional framework for intelligence gathering.
