Trump slams former intel chief Clapper: 'Lying machine'

Hussein Obama’s DNI James Clapper Tried to ‘Dump’ Trump and Failed

A master of disinformation, Gen. James Clapper (Lt.Gen. USAF ret.), lied under oath to Congress about his contacts with the MSM in an effort to discredit US President-elect Donald J.

The confirmation that Clapper spoke to Tapper comes after recently published memos by former FBI Director James Comey revealed that at the time he briefed Trump on the dossier, he knew CNN was looking for a "news hook" in order to report on the dossier.

The Steele dossier features unverified, salacious details about Trump's stay in Moscow, sparking speculations that Russian Federation might be in possession of compromising material, which it could use to blackmail the USA president.

The former U.S. intelligence Boss under Barack Hussein Obama now is an analyst at CNN.

"When initially asked about leaks related to the ICA in July 2017, former ONI Clapper flatly denied 'discussing [ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russian Federation hacking of the 2016 election with journalists, '" the report notes.

Gen. Clapper later in the same interview "acknowledged discussing the 'dossier with CNN journalist Jake Tapper, ' and admitted that he might have spoken with other journalists about the same topic", the House Intel report said.

Pernambuco tem primeira morte de paciente com H1N1 este ano
O vírus H1N1 também conhecido, popularmente, como Gripe Suína ou Gripe A causa preocupação na maioria dos brasileiros. Dessa maneira, ao todo, Pernambuco já tem registrado 18 casos de gripe, entre quadros leves e graves.

While Clapper clearly leaked information about the debunked dossier to damage Trump, Tapper likewise clearly accepted and then published the information to boost CNN's ratings and thus its bottom line.

All this matters because Clapper later lied to Congress about the dossier's leak and then wound up becoming a contributor at CNN.

CNN reported those briefings on January 10, 2017, prompting BuzzFeed to publish the dossier in full. "He is a lying machine who now works for Fake News CNN".

As The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway noted after Comey's memos were finally made available to the public, the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director's account of the briefing of Trump suggested that the entire briefing was a setup from the beginning, and that it was scheduled and held just so it could be leaked to journalists who wanted an excuse to publish a dossier nobody had verified. The conversation took place in "early January", which runs counter to Clapper's own account of events, in which he previously insisted that he had not leaked any info to the media about the infamous dossier before he left office on January, 20.

General Clapper, if charged, prosecuted and found guilty of the crimes will likely spent his tarnished golden years at the Military Prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, disgraced, busted to private and at hard labor.
