Clapper Says "Good Thing" FBI Was Spying On Trump Campaign

Following the president's tweet Thursday morning:

The Daily Caller's Julia Nista pointed out the hypocrisy of former Director of Intelligence James Clapper, who said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign.

Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

He tried to explain away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.”

Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say,

“So, if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, that’s a good thing.”

Nista then tweeted a quick summary of the sheer farce...

Clapper then concluded, that he believes:

“it’s hugely dangerous if someone like that is exposed because the danger to that person” and the potential “reluctance of others to be informants for the FBI” could possibly devastate the FBI.

In other words - don't try to find out who the spy was because it's just too dangerous to national security!!

We leave it to Fox's Sara Carter to summarize...

Yes mister Clapper, you feel the rope getting tight around your neck don't you.  It was a good thing you broke the law to do this for the protection of the people, might as well say it was a matter of National Security since that reason is so abused these days...

Yes.

Clapper really is one of the slimiest SOB's there is. And he's competing with Brennan for the title so that's really saying something!...lol.

And speaking of the communist Brennan, how long before news breaks that he was collecting intel on US citizens as primary targets, which is another felony?

Now they're just racking up bonus years ;-)

Both Brennan and Clapper are key (criminal) actors in this play.  The CIA is at the center of this (at least as far as the house of USA is concerned) and it needs both a financial and constitutional audit.  This should be done while all non-essential work is suspended until further notice.  This is long overdue (back to at least the JFK era).   Let justice be done tho the heavens fall.

 

Bring it all into the light.

Swamp or no swamp, all of the soap-opera, dead-horse-flogging stuff over an election in 2016 just shows what a farce the entire US political system has become. The nation appears to feed on its own fragmentation, with so many pundits,  politicians, and elites manufacturing and fighting irrelevant allegations. Then there are the nation's leaders compelled to stir up strife everywhere they go in the world in the world in order to maintain the relevance of the MIC with  $850 billion a year in military spending, and counting. The only  explanation is that everyone connected with government has to show how important they and their interests are, despite any real merits, so they can continue sucking on the government teat.

If Trump was genuine and free of his Zio shekles and shackles, he would have pulled right out of Syria and patched up relations with Russia to forge an effective economic alliance with that nation, instead of forcing it more and more into the growing Chinese orb.  But he is not either genuine or free, and he clearly is not true to his own nation, but only to his Zionist masters.

Any nation of people who desire to control their own national destinies and wish to have sovereignty over their constitutions, borders and resources, first has to take control of their own currency systems and finances, and kick out the privately-controlled central banks sucking their nation dry.

I agree. These asshats are fighting for THEIR way of life, not any mythical pretend bullshit, a.k.a. "the American way of life" whose meaning Clapper and his ilk have entirely bastardized ..

Public service has become SELF SERVICE .. They know of course what is good for everyone else .. how they know this, in light of everything they have fucked up with their avarice and corruption, remains a mystery to the common man ..

Live and let live is a foreign ideal , as are the words "don't tread on me."

Grifts and grifters, pigs watering from the public trough , unapologetic parasites living off, and killing the public host ..

so...an admission of embedding informants into a citizens presidential campaign in order to plant information and direct a covert entrapment for an 'insurance policy'?

 

sure...sounds like a 'liberal' tactic...

 

we're gonna need more popcorn...AND rope!

Wish I could upvote this 1000x

”We just went in to investigate the Watergate DNC offices to be certain they weren’t card-carrying members of the Communist Party. We had heard they were. From whom? Well, from some Rooskies. Some Rooskies we paid to tell us who the Commies were on their side. They said “all of ‘em!” Especially that Russian puppet McGovern. He didn’t want to nuke Moscow!! Imagine that! Traitorous bastard!! So we went in to see what they were up to. They were trying to defeat me! Russian puppets!!! Then we sent in a couple of ‘operatives’ to offer money to their people to see if they would come to a meeting with some actual Rooskies. How did we find those actual Rooskies? Well, we paid em!!”

Are you now or have you ever been a Klintonite?
