Valin Posted June 7, 2018 Share Posted June 7, 2018 Hugh Hewitt Show Former DNI Director James Clapper joined me for a wide-ranging interview about his memoir “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From A Life In Intelligence”: Audio Transcript: HH: So pleased to welcome to the Hugh Hewitt Show now James Clapper, the fourth U.S. Director of National Intelligence. And you should know this. He began life as an enlisted Marine in the United States’ service, went on to become a three-star Air Force Lieutenant General and director of the Defense Intelligence Agency before his long service as DNI, and it’s an honor to have him. And we have a friend in common, James Clapper, in the name of Dan Poneman, with whom I was having a drink the other day. He said to say hello to you. He’s looking forward to the next vespers, and to be nice to you. JC: Well, that’s great. Dan is great. He is a superb public servant and just a great person, and a great patriot, too, so thanks for that. HH: Well, he is my college roommate. And so I’m on a short leash with you, because of shared friendship. Nevertheless, I want to begin by starting by thanking your wife, Sue. 50 years of your service, but that included for her 23 moves in 32 years, as you recount in Facts And Fears. It includes a harrowing illness, a coma and recovery. She’s an amazing person, James Clapper, but you knew that, but I’m glad you told everyone about it in Facts And Fears. JC: Well, I’ll tell you, I really appreciate your bringing that up. Of all the interviews I’ve had in the last couple of weeks, you’re the only one ever to bring that up. And I really appreciate that, because it’s very appropriate. Whatever success I’ve had would never happen without her. ________________________________________________________________________________ Lot of stuff.
