DNI Coats Statement on Recent Classified Briefings

 

While I cannot discuss the substance of Thursday's classified briefings, I was pleased that both meetings were bipartisan and that we were able to clearly and directly address the Members’ questions and concerns while also protecting sensitive sources and methods. As the White House has stated, Chief of Staff John Kelly and White House lawyer Emmet Flood were there to relay the President’s desire for as much openness as possible under the law; and both left—as planned—before the substantive portion of the meeting began.

 

Daniel R. Coats,
Director of National Intelligence
