(National Sentinel) Deep State: Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, a known liar who has given false testimony to Congress and should have been charged for that crime, may be, um, bending the truth once again regarding the well-established fact that the Obama administration was “wire tapping” Team Trump.
As reported by The Daily Caller, in an interview with CNN‘s Don Lemon last night, Clapper, now a network contributor to the Fake News Network, was asked whether he knew about the FISA warrant authorizing the FBI and who knows who else to spy on members of the Trump campaign.
“Did you know about a FISA warrant against Paul Manafort at the time?” Lemon asked.
“I did not,” Clapper replied.
Really, Jim? Because a couple of months back, you said something completely different.
As The Daily Caller reminds all of us:
In a March 5 interview on “Meet the Press,” Clapper said that he would have been aware of a FISA warrant on a member of the Trump campaign, even one granted to the FBI. And asked if such a warrant had been obtained, Clapper directly denied it.
“There was no such wire tap activity mounted against the President-elect at the time or as a candidate or against his campaign,” Clapper told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.
Asked by Todd if he would have been aware of a FISA order issued for someone affiliated with the Trump campaign, Clapper said “absolutely.”
Clapper unequivocally denied that a wiretap order was granted.
Which is it, Mr. Clapper? You knew and would know, or you didn’t and couldn’t know? After all, you were the director of national intelligence.
You don’t have to respond; we already know the answer.
Day by day, as Trump’s tenure in office grows, we are reminded just how deep, wide, and disgustingly nasty the Washington swamp we sent the president to drain really is.
