WASHINGTON, April 13 (UPI) -- Former FBI Director Louis Freeh told the Sept. 11 Commission Tuesday he had ample contact with both the Clinton and Bush administrations.
"The notion that we weren't sharing information is, as far as I'm concerned, an incorrect characterization," Freeh said.
Freeh confirmed former counterterrorism coordinator Richard Clarke's claim that Freeh never provided written memos on terrorism to the president or his staff.
Freeh added, however, that he did have many meetings with Clinton national security adviser Sandy Berger and other administration officials.
He said Clarke was never present at his meetings with Berger.
"There was certainly no distance or separation" between the FBI and either the Clinton or Bush administrations," said Freeh, who headed the FBI from 1993 to 2001 under both presidents.
"I had, I think, in both administrations, the same relationship," Freeh said.
