President Trump has indicated his intent to nominate Peter Thomson, who previously spent 23 years at the Department of Justice as a federal prosecutor, to be inspector general at the CIA.

Thomson serves as an attorney at Stone Pigman Walther Wittmann and co-chair of the law firm’s white collar criminal defense and information security practices, the White House said Friday.

He participated in more than 50 criminal case trials within federal and state courts and gained professional experience in the areas of appellate and civil litigation, corporate compliance and government investigation.

The lawyer also taught at Tulane University Law School, where he earned both his bachelor’s and juris doctorate degrees.

Thomson started his career in 1983 as at Coleman, Dutrey and Thomson and had a short stint as special assistant at the National Security Agency.
