Mr. Chaffetz declined to comment Wednesday to The Washington Times. His press secretary, M.J. Henshaw, said that “as far as The Wall Street Journal piece, I think my boss said everything he wanted to say about it.”
Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Maryland Democrat, shot back at Mr. Chaffetz on Wednesday.
“We have seen absolutely no evidence to support the irresponsible charge that there was any deliberate effort to mislead the American people,” he said, adding that he had neither heard nor seen anything during Mr. Clapper’s classified briefing “that would support Mr. Chaffetz’s statement.”
