Ex-DHS Chief Jeh Johnson on Releasing Nunes Memo: ‘This Is Not the Way to Run a Government’

Wednesday on MSNBC, former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said releasing the classified House Intelligence Committee memo about alleged bias in the FBI and the Justice Department was “not the way to run a government.”

Johnson said  “This is the kind of thing that has to go through a protocol, a process to make sure everything is considered, to make sure that declassifying information does not institute damage to our relationships with foreign governments or compromise sources and methods or damage national security. And so I hope that we go through that process.”

He added, “That’s about as serious as one could express a national security concern when you say I have grave concerns. We don’t throw around phrases like that unless we’re really, really concerned about what it is people want to do.”
