HEINRICH:
Are -- are you familiar with the term unwitting agent?

PRIESTAP: Yes, I am.

HEINRICH:
Can you kind of summarize what that is for us?

PRIESTAP:
In an intelligence context, it would be where an intelligence service is trying to advance certain names and they reach out to a variety of people, some of which they might try to convince to do certain things. And the -- the people, person or persons they contact might actually carry those out, but for different reasons than the intelligence service that actually wanted them to carry them out. In other words, they do it unwittingly.

HEINRICH:
By effectively reinforcing the Russian narrative and -- and publicly saying that our system is rigged, did then candidate Trump -- now President Trump, become, what intelligence officials call, an unwitting agent?

HE TURNS OFF HIS MIC

PRIESTAP:
I -- I can't give you a comment on that.

HEINRICH:
I -- I don't blame you for not answering that question. close
