Former intel chief talks of ‘beautiful letter’ Trump said he wrote

“I went on to say that I hoped he would abide by the long-standing principle of the [intelligence chief] always telling ‘truth to power,'” Clapper said.

Trump and Clapper have clashed over Clapper’s frequent criticism of the president.

On Wednesday, Clapper compared Trump’s contrasting speeches Tuesday and Wednesday to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, calling the sudden character shift “disturbing.”

“What caused concern is this sort of … Jekyll-Hyde business, where he’ll make a scripted teleprompter speech, which is good, and then turn around and negate it by sort of the unbridled, unleashed, unchaperoned Trump,” Clapper said on CNN.
