The cnet story is based off

The cnet story is based off an exchange between rep Nadler and fbi director Robert Mueller, which occurred in a public hearing. If you click the link in the second update in the op you can watch video of it, it is very brief. The same link also has some good additional context with respect to the laws at play, and also urges some caution about accepting cnet's interpretation of the exchange at face value.

In any case, and to your point, I wondered the same about whether Nadler could catch flak for this since the substance of the briefing was supposed to be classified...
