If you could sit next to anyone at the presidential inauguration, whom would it be and what would you ask?
James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence — especially if he were on truth serum!
He has been at the center of the post-election firestorm over Russia’s interference, and he had to call the president-elect the week before the inauguration to defuse tensions. It would be fun to know what he really thinks of Trump’s speech and how the intelligence community is going to deal with the new, openly hostile administration. I’m not sure he’d want to go, though.
