Clapper: FBI Is 'Premier Law Enforcement Organization' in the World

("New Day")

Former director of national intelligence James Clapper disputed President Donald Trump's characterization of the FBI, calling it "a superb organization" on Monday.

Trump tweeted Sunday morning that the FBI's reputation is in "tatters" after former director James Comey's tenure. Days before, news broke that Trump's former national security adviser had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

"Apart form the ridiculous substance of the charge, the FBI is the premier law enforcement organization, not just in this country, but in the world," Clapper said on CNN's "New Day."

He added: "And it is not in tatters. It is a superb organization with tremendous men and women who are dedicated, and — many of whom put their lives on the line every day for the safety and security of this country."

Clapper concluded: "But regrettably, this is — this seems to be the common practice of President Trump."
