Bob Litt, lawyer at the time for ODNI who ushered in intel sharing no longer works there. Guess what he’s an expert in? CFIUS! Uranium 1?

Bob Litt, former General Counsel for the Director of National Intelligence, is of counsel in Morrison & Foerster’s national security and global risk & crisis management practices. He advises industry-leading organizations on sensitive national security and privacy matters, white collar investigations, and government enforcement actions.

Mr. Litt has extensive experience advising clients on national security matters, including those in relation to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). In addition, he also has significant experience in civil and criminal litigation as well as investigations. He is also an Adjunct Research Scholar in Columbia Law School's National Security Law Program.

Prior to joining Morrison & Foerster, Mr. Litt was General Counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), giving him a strong understanding of the intelligence community and its equities. Mr. Litt was unanimously confirmed by the Senate for this role, in which he oversaw a team of attorneys providing legal advice to the agency and led interagency national security meetings.

Bob Litt, ODNI lawyer was Clappers best friend, defended Clapper when he lied to Congress about NSA data collection. Director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper wasn't lying when he wrongly told Congress in 2013 that the government does not "wittingly" collect information about millions of Americans, according to his top lawyer.

He just forgot.

"This was not an untruth or a falsehood. This was just a mistake on his part," Robert Litt, the general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said during a panel discussion hosted by the Advisory Committee on Transparency on Friday.

"We all make mistakes."
