Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., said Tuesday that CNN’s report that the CIA pulled a high-level spy out of Russia due to President Trump’s “mishandling” of classified intelligence warrants an “investigation.”

“This is a problem that we’re seeing,” the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee told “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I think that it needs to be investigated, but with the CIA coming out like it has, then that’s something we need to look at.”

“I really question whose side CNN is on,” Collins said. “To put this out at this time and to put it in such a way that the CIA had to come out and respond to this is, really, a disturbing part.”

Even CNN analyst Phil Mudd, Mudd, a former CIA and FBI official, said Monday that a key aspect of the CNN report was questionable.

Speaking on “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” Mudd said, “I question whether this angle of the story, about whether the president’s engagement with intelligence, was actually a spur in the extraction of the informant.”

“I suspect there were other issues here.”
