Tuesday on CNN’s “New Day,” former chief of staff to President George H. W. Bush and former Gov. John H. Sununu (R-NH) pushed back against CNN’s coverage of the Trump-Russia investigation in an interview with co-host Alisyn Camerota.
Partial transcript as follows:
CAMEROTA: Is there anything about the Russian — investigation connected to the Trump campaign that troubles you?
SUNUNU: Yeah, but the reporting that’s taking place and the exaggeration of the venality and the suggestion — look, it’s now seven months since the election, and to this day, no one has cited a single piece of evidence. In your last segment, you guys were patting yourselves on the back because you said Clapper had passed the responsibility off to the FBI. But you forget that in the last weeks of the administration, Obama allowed all his intelligence agencies to share their information. And there is no question in my mind that when that happen since Clapper’s group had originated this, that anything the FBI had would have gone back to Clapper. So it is nice for Capper to try and wash his hands of it by throwing it in the FBI’s lap, but he had access in those days to whatever the FBI had. There is nothing there.
