Clapper Sings – Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper Tells CNN Obama Ordered the Trump-Russia Spying Operation (VIDEO)

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 3/31/2019 12:53:41 PM

On Monday former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper went on with CNN’s Anderson Cooper to discuss the Mueller Report after its release on Sunday. After two years of investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of angry Democrats did not find any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Mueller also did not find any evidence of conspiracy after President Trump fired crooked leaker FBI Director James Comey. Clapper defended the Obama administration’s spying on their political opposition during the election.

This jackwad says one thing, then does a 180 and says the opposite. What kind of fool is this? Where, where Baldie, does Pres. Trump side with Putin over his own intelligence officers? This guy has been promoted to a level of importance way, way, WAY beyond his competence (see Pres. Obama).

Clapper said: "President Obama is responsible for that, and it was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place."

OK, you let them rattle on long enough and eventually they screw up and tell you the truth. Now we know Obama initiated the illegal attempt to smear Trump, which eventually resulted in the coup attempt after Trump was elected.

And Obama was entirely uninterested in "Russian interference" prior to them deciding to convert this nothingburger into a weapon to use against Trump.

This was Clapper intending to praise Obama after Trump accused Obama of ignoring Russian meddling. What Clapper said comes out as damning both Obama and the special counsel for the collusion fiasco. Expect Clapper´s clarification soon.

Supposedly, BO´s team is trying to establish a justification for all their actions based on the "possibility" that Trump was a Russian mole. The fact that the "possibility" was manufactured of paid Russian sources by Hillary Clintoon and the DNC via Christoper Steele and Fusion GPS is glossed over.

Clapper is trying to fall back on "What would you have done if you thought a presidential candidate was a Russian affiliate?". "Wasn´t it reasonable to investigate further?"

The right answer is, "Wasn´t your evidence for that "possibility" a political hit piece that you accepted and PUSHED without questioning it?". Then start asking, "Who knew the sources of the Steele dossier?". Shouldn´t the source have been one of the first questions asked. If the RNC had written a paper saying BO was an Iranian spy, would you accept it without SERIOUS doubt.

The non questioning of the dossier was a political plan and decision. It was the foundation of corruption in the FBI, DOJ, Intelligence agencies, and other areas of government.

For James Clapper that interview was a CYA try, certainly for himself, and by extension for the rest of the Obama crew.

He never explained how the Russians tampering in the US electoral process turned into both counterintelligence and special counsel investigations targeting President Trump, his campaign and Administration. Just because the Obama crew did not like Trump’s political agenda and way getting into position to negotiate with foreign leaders did not amount to any sort of probable cause to initiate federal and international investigations targeting Trump. If those factors caused the Obama Intelligence big-timers to believe that Trump was a Russian agent, USA intelligence is in a very bad way indeed.

Since assuming office Trump has treated President Putin of Russia about the same as Trump has treated Chairman Kim of North Korea, very personable, but as we saw with Kim, once it became evident that it was not in the USA national interest to further negotiate with Kim, Trump walked out, got on Air Force One and returned to the USA. No doubt Trump would take the same course with Putin, as with his attempt to negotiate with Kim, but obviously the Democrats, Obama, and his crew and their media operatives were not even willing to give Trump that chance. Clearly that was pretty arrogant on Obama and his crew’s part.

The Russians are always going to be out there trying to meddle in the USA electoral processes, so we probably have not seen anything yet as more adversarial countries try to do the same. Chances are the Obama crew, while Clinton was Secretary of State, through the CIA tried to meddle in a Russian national election, course such meddling would be an Obama era “Top Secret” but those efforts probably caught the very nationalistic Russians eyes.

Thanks, #17/18.

Now it looks to me like THIS is what ´the insurance policy´ was/is.

They were going to try a coup, but ´the insurance policy´ if they failed was to pretend that they were actually convinced, by real evidence, that Trump was a Russian agent.

Prove that they faked the early origins, as Sundance says, and that is how you blow up their insurance policy and get these traitors into prison.

The old saying is, "If you strike the King, you must slay him" - or you need an "insurance policy" if you fail.

Few things offend Bernie Sanders as much as people escaping from command-and-control government systems, even minority students whose parents are desperate to get their kids a decent education. The socialist wants to turn George Wallace on his head and not block black children from attending traditional public schools but block them from exiting them for something better. The New York Times the other day wrote a long, devastating report on the then-Burlington, Vt., mayor’s love affair with the Sandinistas in the 1980s. So many decades later, his reflex is the same: If the Sandinistas wouldn’t favor it, he’s not inclined to like it much, either.

I check the security cameras, and I saw the UPS driver deliver it, then about eight minutes later another individual comes up, grabs it and takes off.”
Trump’s subpoena appeal headed to

Spurned Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland — whose chance at a spot on the high court was derailed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — may have a key say on whether President Trump’s financial records are released to the House. Trump’s lawyers on Tuesday appealed a lower court’s decision ordering that the records be released to the House Oversight Committee to the Washington, DC, Circuit Court of Appeals — which Garland heads as chief judge. President Barack Obama nominated Garland to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016 after Scalia’s death. But McConnell refused to even schedule a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider Garland’s nomination,

Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established.
