Growing concerns about the contentious U.S. presidential race, fueled by doubts about the candidates' qualifications and even their own rhetoric, have not gone unnoticed by the U.S. intelligence community.

But the top U.S. intelligence official wants Americans and people around the world to know there is no need to worry.

"A lot of people out there are nervous about what will happen, and understandably so," Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday. "I think it will be OK."

"In contrast to any uncertainty surrounding an election and the transition to the next administration, one constant in national security are the people of the intelligence community," Clapper told an audience at the Capitol Visitors Center in Washington, calling the collection of U.S. intelligence agencies "a pillar of stability."

Clapper also said the U.S. intelligence community would be "heavily involved in making sure [the next president] is informed about our world and, hopefully, is ready to make decisions."
