"I wanted to make sure that every information and bit of intelligence that we had was shared with the [FBI] so that they could take it," Mr. Brennan told the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in May. "It was well beyond my mandate as director of CIA to follow on any of those leads that involved U.S. persons.
"Considering the source of the criticism, I consider that criticism a badge of honor," Mr. Brennan said. "To impugn the character of somebody like Jim Clapper on Veteran's Day, who has dedicated so much of his life to this country, I just find that outrageous. I think it's something Mr. Trump should be ashamed of, but it doesn't seem that anything that he does he feels any shame of whatsoever."
