WASHINGTON, D.C. – Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe today released the following statement:

 

"I have confirmed that neither the President nor the Vice President were ever briefed on any intelligence alleged by the New York Times in its reporting yesterday.

The New York Times reporting, and all other subsequent news reports about such an alleged briefing are inaccurate."
