James Clapper is back in the news this morning! And a BIG ‘thank you’ goes to Sean Davis of The Federalist.
Sean reveals from a declassified Congressional report’ that ‘James Clapper lied about dossier leaks to CNN.’
American’s are tired of the LIES from our Government leaders. Clap ON: Clap OFF!
And if he lied to CNN, it also means he lied to Congress! Clapper is in a world of hurt and should be held to the SAME standards as they held Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort. After all, lying is lying.
The surprising unknown fact, showed up on a newly declassified report about Russian meddling. Click here to see the report.
Sean Davis of The Federalist states the following: (Continued below.)
“Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper not only leaked information about the infamous Steele dossier and high-level government briefings about it to CNN, he also may have lied to Congress about the matter.
In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper. [He] lied to Congress about the leak. And was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.
Clapper flatly denied ‘discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists,’” the committee found. (Continued below.)
When asked directly whether he had ever discussed the dossier with any journalists, Clapper replied that he had not, according to a transcript of the proceedings:
MR. ROONEY: Did you discuss the dossier or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists?
MR. CLAPPER: No.
The web of lies seems to be growing by the day. As more and more reveals itself to the American people. It is becoming increasingly clear, our Government, during the Obama-era was immersed in a culture of partisan illegalities.
Another notion that is becoming clear, the ‘deep state’ would stop at nothing to oust a duly elected President by the people of the United States of America.
Let’s all do our part, and vote in the mid-terms. h/t The Federalist
