Sen. Jim Risch’s office put out a media advisory saying he will appear on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” with Sean Hannity, which begins airing at 7 p.m. MST. The advisory said Risch, R-Idaho, is expected to appear 20 minutes into the hour.
The advisory doesn’t mention the topic, but I’ll make a guess. Risch today accused John Brennan, President Obama’s nominee to head the CIA, of leaking classified information about a foiled terrorist bomb attack to the media.
“I think the leak is right in front of me,” said Risch, according to a Washington Post account of what the paper called a “sharp exchange.”
“I disagree with that vehemently, ” Brennan replied, telling the committee that he was a “witness, not a target” in a Justice Department investigation into the leak.
Risch questioned Brennan during an Intelligence Committee confirmation hearing.
