SEPTEMBER 24, 2017

     Clapper lied.  “Is it possible the president was picked up in a conversation with Paul Manafort?” CNN’s Don Lemon asked former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper Wednesday night. “It’s certainly conceivable,” Clapper responded. “Is it likely?” Lemon asked him. “I can't say,” Clapper responded. “I wouldn't want to go there, but I will say it's – it’s possible.” Yet, Clapper previously has said that he is unaware of any FISA-authorized wiretapping of Trump Tower or the Trump campaign.  Clapper is an Obama fool loser.

     Lemon began the Wednesday night interview by asking Clapper to comment on an exclusive CNN report that government investigators obtained a FISA court warrant to wiretap Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, both before and after the election, including times when Manafort was communicating directly with the president.  ‘What's your reaction to that?” Lemon asked Clapper. “Well, I can’t comment on a specific FISA order,” Clapper said. “I said some things about this on “Meet the Press” on the 5th of March, and I stand on that statement. I can’t – I can’t confirm or deny." On March 5, Clapper told Chuck Todd, host of “Meet the Press,” that he certainly hoped he would know if President Obama had ordered a wiretap of Donald Trump’s campaign offices, as Trump has accused Obama of doing.

     “I can't speak officially anymore,” Clapper told Todd on March 5, “but I will say that for the part of the national security apparatus that I oversaw as DNI, there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the President-elect at the time or as a candidate or against his campaign.” Clapper said he couldn’t speak for other federal courts or state or local entities. Chuck Todd followed up, asking Clapper if he would know if the FBI had obtained a FISA court order for some kind of Trump surveillance. “I would know that,” Clapper said. “Something like this, absolutely.”
