Jim Jordan Blasts James Clapper: He 'Was the Guy Leaking Info'

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, slammed former director of national intelligence James Clapper for "leaking information to the press," on Fox News' "America's Newsroom" Wednesday.

"We learned two key things from the Republicans on the intelligence committee — their report. The first is they told us something we already know, namely, there was no coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the election," Jordan said. "The second thing they told us is something that we suspected, now they've confirmed, which is that Clapper actually was the guy leaking information."

"Specifically leaking information I believe, from that Jan. 6th meeting where they briefed President [Donald] Trump, then President-elect Trump on the dossier," he continued. "Someone at CNN got information. We think it was Mr. Clapper who gave it to them. And then a few days later BuzzFeed prints the entire dossier."

"So those in my mind were the two key takeaways," Jordan said. "No coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia and Mr. Clapper was leaking information. Here is one of the top intelligence people in the government at the time, leaking information to the press."

"The real concern here is what the FBI did. What the top people did," the congressman concluded. "They took an opposition research document and dressed it all up, made it look like legit intelligence and took it to the FISA court to get a warrant to spy on a fellow American citizen. And the guy who leaked information about that dossier is James Clapper."
