James Clapper has memory loss regarding FBI spying the Rats are running for cover now
Attorney General William Barr put the Obama DOJ on notice earlier this week and sent rats running for cover when he dared to mention FBI spying. James Comey says he has no idea what he is talking about, John Brennan is “disappointed” about Barr’s FBI spying comment. And James Clapper just chose to lie about it.
Too bad he didn’t lie to two FBI agents entrapping him like General Flynn.
Clapper the Director of National Intelligence under former (thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama appearing on CNN Thursday said he could not speak specifically about FBI spying and it was “both stunning and scary.”
According to Newsbusters the Obama stooge was lying. On an episode of The View in May 2018, co-host Joy Behar asked Clapper point-blank “was the FBI spying on Trump’s campaign?” Clapper gave her a definitive answer: “no, they were not.” He went on to declare that “they were spying on, a term I don’t particularly like, but on what the Russians were doing.”
Based on his appearance on the view Clapper had extensive knowledge of the FBI’s behavior in counterintelligence investigations related to the 2016 Presidential Election.
When the new Attorney General who is actually doing his job says he is going to investigate FBI spying. Then Clapper gets a case of amnesia “I can’t speak, specifically…to what the FBI did.”
Attorney General Barr sent shock waves through the Obama DOJ this week in testimony before the Senate Appropriations committee when he brought up FBI spying and said he intended to investigate the Genesis of the Mueller witch hunt ( he did not say that but that is what it was).
“I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” Barr said during an exchange with Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
Shaheen asked in a follow-up whether Barr believed the FBI spied on the Trump team.
“You’re not suggesting, though, that spying occurred?” Shaheen asked.
“I think spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur. But the question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated,” Barr said.
“I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.”
Barr suggested later in the hearing that he had information leading him to question whether the FBI conducted unauthorized surveillance against the Trump campaign.
“I believe there is a basis for my concern, but I’m not going to discuss it,” Barr said.
The rats are running and James Clapper is one of the lead rats.
