|Documented to have Lied to Congress|
James Clapper is as big a liar as President Obama. It was Clapper who told Congress that the NSA was not dong mass spying on the American people. That was a bold face lie that was discovered by documents released by Eric Snowden that blew the whistle on Obama's NSA. So there is absolutely no reason to believe a words that comes out of Clapper's mouth! The man has ZERO credibility!
NBC reports former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Sunday denied any suggestion that Trump Tower communications were wiretapped before the election.
For the part of the national security apparatus that he oversaw, "there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, the president-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign," Clapper told Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview on Sunday's "Meet The Press."
When Todd asked him whether he could confirm or deny if a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Act) order for this existed, Clapper declared, "I can deny it."Asked again whether there was a FISA Court order to monitor Trump Tower, Clapper said, "Not to my knowledge."
Clapper said that if any wiretap like that occurred, he would "certainly hope" that he would be aware of it."I can't speak for other authorized entities in the government or a state or local entity," he added.
