Appearing on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper Monday, former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, whose legacy is lying under oath to Congress about the Obama Regime’s unconstitutional spying on American citizens, told fill-in host Jim Sciutto that American President Donald Trump is somehow an intelligence “asset” of Russia leader Vladimir Putin’s.
It was a statement by the truth-challenged Obama spy ring leader that was so ridiculous even Sciutto (an Obama operative in his own right) was taken aback:
JAMES CLAPPER: “I think this past weekend is illustrative of what a great case officer Vladimir Putin is. He knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the President.”
JIM SCIUTTO: “You’re saying that Russia is handling President Trump as an asset?”
CLAPPER: “That seems to be — that’s the appearance to me. So, you know, we’ve shared intelligence with the Russians for a long time. We’ve always done that. Although my experience with them has been pretty much of a one-way street, where we provide them intelligence and we don’t get much back. And oddly enough, my first exposure to that was in the early ‘90s when I served as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and we were trying to engage the Russians on, of all places, North Korea and didn’t get much back from them. I think what we did is the right thing. Certainly when people’s lives are at risk that we do have a duty to warn. So the intelligence community, CIA did the right thing here.
And I thought in a rather theatric gesture of a phone call to thank President Trump for something that goes on below the radar and is not all that visible.”
SCIUTTO: “I just want to be clear though here, you’re saying Russia is treating the President of the United States as an asset?”
CLAPPER: “I’m saying this figuratively.”
Clapper was referring to reports that the Trump administration shared intelligence that thwarted a terrorist bombing and that Putin called the President to thank him.
Evidence? He has none of course. Although, there is a ton of evidence that the Obama Regime and Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia to bring down Trump via the concocted dirty dossier, as latest texts from anti-Trump, pro-Hillary FBI agent Peter Strzok reveal.
And you can bet that Clapper was knee-deep in the scheme, which is the reason for the desperate attempt at deflection and projection. What’s more than likely is that James Clapper and his ilk are the real “assets” of Vladimir Putin. After all, whose policies would be more favorable to Russia, when it comes to national defense or energy (uranium, anyone?), Trump’s or Hillary Clinton’s?
It’s unfortunate that James Clapper was never held accountable for lying to Congress and equally regrettable that leftist media like CNN and MSNBC continue to give the confirmed liar any credibility whatsoever.
