Clapper: Nunes’ FISA Abuse Claims ‘Hyperbolic’; I Wish He’d Spend More Time on Russia
CLAPPER: "Well, Chris, it sounds a bit hyperbolic to me and it does conjures up memories of Chairman Nunes, you know, running around the White House compound and getting all kinds of secret information about alleged unmasking abuses. And, to my knowledge, there weren't any. So this is sort of the same thing and I do look -- I think there is a couple cautionary notes here. First, this was not bipartisan. And I do find it strange that if he found these profound irregularities in both the bureau, as well as the Department of Justice, that he would not have shared that revelation immediately with the Trump-appointed director of the FBI Director Wray, as well as Attorney General Sessions."
