CNN’s Don Lemon reported at 10:12pmET during “Newsroom,” citing the NBC News report through the rest of the hour. DC anchors Wolf Blitzer and John King called-in, with King speculating that the White House had held the news Sunday because they wanted the terrorism officials out on the public affairs shows earlier in the day.
