Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper made a surprising revelation on Monday night regarding Dennis Rodman and his place in negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea.
Former spy chief James Clapper tells @ChrisCuomo he believes @DennisRodman is relevant in US/North Korea negotiations:
“I have long been an advocate of involving Dennis Rodman… I think that there is a potential here to engage [him] in a serious way" https://t.co/iz8ioGSmzM pic.twitter.com/pBCslFw7Tp

On CNN, Cuomo Prime Time host Chris Cuomo mused that the former basketball player, who has befriended North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, knows President Trump, and is in Singapore during their historic summit, "is our best resource at this point right now for understanding the minds of the two men, especially Kim Jong Un." And yes, Clapper knows how "weird" that is. "This whole thing is unconventional," he said.

Clapper said he had "long been an advocate of involving Dennis Rodman. He is a unique person since he has a relationship with both Kim Jong Un and with Donald Trump. And obviously he has a great rapport with Kim Jong Un, who is a basketball fanatic himself. So, I think there's a potential here to engage Dennis Rodman in a serious way in promoting this relationship."
