SENATORS PUSH BRENNAN ON MISLEADING TESTIMONY. “Brennan, in an exchange with Rubio, had said of Harzi that the U.S. government ‘didn’t have anything on him.’ The claim is almost certainly false. The U.S. government provided evidence of Harzi’s involvement in those attacks to the governments of Turkey and Tunisia, which had both held Harzi as the U.S. tried to gain access to him for questioning. In fact, the U.S. government not only has evidence of Harzi’s involvement, we shared that intelligence with the governments of Turkey and Tunisia, both of which held Harzi after he was detained en route to Syria. FBI Director Robert Mueller was involved in those high-level negotiations.”
