Clapper Squirms

Blog Post
Former Director of National Intelligence, General James Clapper, spoke on CNN last Monday, where he admitted that he and others are being investigated by Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Connecticut Attorney John Durham, for doing what former President Obama “told them to do.”
James Clapper
Asked if he is concerned if Attorney General William Barr or John Durham’s investigations will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials, James Clapper responded, “I don’t know. I don’t think there was any wrongdoing.”
Clapper, a perjurer, appeared before the Senate to discuss surveillance programs in the midst of a controversy over warrantless surveillance of the American public. He was asked directly, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions, or hundreds of millions of Americans?” There was no ambiguity or confusion and Clapper responded, “No, sir. … Not wittingly.” That was a lie and Clapper knew it when he said it. And the statute of limitations ran on that, so he won’t be prosecuted for THAT perjured testimony.
Today Jim Clapper is a CNN contributor and a darling of progressive left. And he’s likely the one that US Attorney Durham has testifying before the federal grand jury because he’s the weakest of the co-conspirators. He will lay out Barack Obama… and then the fun starts.
We don’t know what he’s telling the grand jury, but let’s review what he’s saying on CNN:

“And oh, by the way, hold off what the then Commander in Chief, President Obama told us to do, which was assemble all the reporting we could, that we had available to us, and put it in one report that the President could pass on to Congress and the next administration.”  

“And while we’re at it, declassify as much as we possibly could to make it public, and that’s what we did,” he added. “It’s kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for having done our duty and what we were told to do by the President.” 

“If it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events, which are still unfolding today, notably, Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation,” he said. 

“President Obama is responsible for that and it was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment (based on the Steel Dossier) in the first place,” Clapper admitted.

  1. Time for still more popcorn. The left seems to be the gift that keeps on giving.
    Merry Christmas, LL. Hope you have a grand celebration tomorrow. Me? I'll be hanging with ALL of my grandkids.

  2. Ah yes, the old Nuremburg gambit. Weird how the shadow junta all seem to end up on CNN.

    Speaking of which, will Brennan go down like Striecher, saluting his Leader to the very end?

  3. Mine consist of one boy(age 8) and four girls(1-3) with another girl due in the spring. Barrel of monkeys is an apt description.

  4. Loving it, making more popcorn! Merry New Year, Happy Christmas, and all that other stuff… :-)

  5. Well now, "e were only following orders"…said like a typical bureaucrat.

    Thinking – since this is Christmas and all – that Trump's 62+ million supporters should head over to Amazon, order "The Clapper" then send them to him….you know, as a nice gesture.

  6. He's an old man, wonder how long his health will hold out between now and any official "testimony" he will be required to give.

    Merry Christmas one and all.

  7. Merry Christmas LL! Enjoy the days left of this year. Soon a brand new year will open all kinds of new opportunties.

  8. Merry Christmas LL and to all who contribute here ( or the appropriate greetings for the holiday which those of you who may celebrate some other festival). May the new year find all of you in good health and safe.

  9. Ed, when you're guilty of treason, the best thing that you can do is to blame somebody else. Which is why the grand jury system works so well. You put the lower and more cowardly under oath and ask them questions in front of the jury. I'm sure that former National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, will sing like a bird too – blaming Barack, who ordered that President Trump and his campaign officials be 'unmasked' from classified wire intercepts (the wires obtained by fraudulent FISA applications).

  10. Brennon is just a smarter version of Clapper. He will fold and cut his deal against Barack early, hoping for a pass on his felonious behavior.

  11. If it was only Clapper, he'd have had his heart attack long before now. There are a host of co-conspirators, each with a roll to play. And I guarantee you, they're flipping and spilling their guts.

  12. Once it's sworn in the grand jury, it's admissible as evidence even if he croaks. Then again, the transcripts could be destroyed in a fire or something.

  13. Yes, I'm very hopeful that your efforts, which I won't outline here, come to pass. It would be fun to work on projects in Norway! Meanwhile, Merry Christmas!

  14. Festivus has passed as has Hanukkah. Quanzaa is in the future. Today, it's Merry Christmas! I hope that you have a great day!
