TODD: You would be told this?

CLAPPER: I would know that, yes.

TODD: If there was a FISA court order?

CLAPPER: Something like this absolutely.

TODD: And at this point, you can’t confirm or deny whether that exists?

TODD: There is no FISA court order?

CLAPPER: Not to my knowledge.

TODD: Of anything at Trump Tower?
