ABC host refutes GOP senator's mind-declassification claim

ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos was stunned Sunday when Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) dodged questions on mental declassification.

Stephanopoulos of ABC's "This Week" questioned the senator if he agreed with former President Donald Trump's recent claim.

Barrasso did not confront the obviously absurd assertion, while having previously declined to rebuke Trump for backing Trump's defence.

"That's a new one on me," he said.
George, I must warn you, we must use the utmost care when dealing with matters of national security materials.

'I don't know anything about the regulations for when a president declassifies records and information,' he went on.

What I do know is that, from the Senate's perspective, I'd want to have the Department of Justice provide the evidence to us in a secure location.
