(CNN) - Russia apparently contacted the FBI more than once about dead about Boston Marathon attack suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a Virginia lawmaker told CNN Wednesday.
U.S. Rep. Robert Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, was asked about a newspaper report that said there wasn't just one point of contact between Russia and the FBI.
"We are hearing that," Goodlatte said.
CNN National Security Analyst Fran Townsend responds to Goodlatte on Starting Point this morning, saying that the repeated contact is "unusual," but needs to be taken in context.
"What I find more disturbing is the information sharing issue," Townsend explains. "Even in the current administration we've seen an instance where this sort of important counterterrorism information is not adequately shared or followed up."
