GOP Rep. Spars With Cuomo: ‘I Have a Concern About What Our Intelligence Community Is Doing’

An interview between CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Representative Sean Duffy was certainly wide-ranging this morning, but ended up hitting the intelligence community pretty hard. On New Day, Cuomo asked Duffy about reports that the United States may use military intervention against North Korea and what that sort of action might look like. After a few answers, the host suddenly switched topics on the representative, bringing up Trump’s claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped him. Those allegations have been largely brushed off by intelligence groups within the government. Duffy, too, said he had seen “no evidence,” but if the administration was still insisting they had some, he would be willing to hear it. He and Cuomo went back and forth about elected officials’ responsibilities when Donald Trump the credibility ball, before Duffy turned the topic to surveillance in general. “I have a concern — and I’m pivoting a little bit ,” he said. “Yep,” interjected Cuomo. “I have a concern about what our intelligence community is doing with surveillance of Americans and releasing that information publicly,” Duffy finished. Watch above to see both men carry on a conversation about their topic of choice, pivoting back and forth while discussing the intelligence community from different angles.
