James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence, said Wednesday morning he questioned President Donald Trump's fitness for office.

"Having some understanding of the levers that a president can exercise، I worry about، frankly، the access to the nuclear codes،" Clapper said.

Clapper that a version of the same letter was going to be included in a daily intelligence briefing to the winning candidate, whether it was Trump or Democratic nominee.

Clapper told CNN's Jake Tapper he can't show the letter, because he did not keep a copy. Some lawmakers have said he misled them about data collection.

Shawn Turner, Clapper's spokesman, said the letter Trump was referring to was the note he had prepared for the victor of the Presidential election, that was handed to to Trump with the presidential briefing the morning after he had won.

Clapper was referring to the press conference that took place a week before Tuesday night's rally in which the president assigned some blame for violence in Charlottesville to the protesters gathered in the Virginia town to call out racists, including neo-Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan.

Clapper was more than happy to explain the rest to CNN. In a fit of pique, he decides to do something about Kim Jong Un?

Clapper also said he is anxious about the President's access to the nuclear codes. CNN anchor Don Lemon in particular appeared to jettison the principles of impartial journalism by unleashing a tirade of insults at Trump on the air - calling him "unhinged", "petty", "small", "like a child blaming a sibling" and critiquing his speech as "without thought", "without reason", "devoid of facts" and "no sanity".

'I do wonder as well the people attracted to this rally. what are they thinking?' he asked. Clapper said "Not wittingly".

"I hand-wrote nearly identical short notes to each of the two candidates to accompany the first brief as President-elect; only one actually got deployed - the one to him", he said.
