It looks like the FBI director gave inaccurate testimony to us is the White House concerned that he. Greatly exaggerated. Or misstated what kind of contact. Whom he. From different mills. Two if you. I have not asked president staff about that but in I think there's the one issue is I don't think there's any question. By any account that. That there was classified information inappropriately shared. An unclassified system to an unclear person and that's to me I think what continues to take what is the concern that the FBI director apparently inaccurate test. I don't at this point I have not. Hats and I'm not. Fully aware of this and have them Wear the testimony that occurred. And the inquiries but I've yet to. To follow and I'd be glad to follow that the president's.
