James Clapper Claims FISA Wiretap Of Paul Manafort Conducted Without His Knowledge
Mediaite ^ | September 21,2017 | Larry O'Connor

Posted on 09/21/2017 7:23:49 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Earlier this week CNN reported what radio talk show host (and former Justice Department official) Mark Levin revealed in March, that secret FISA court orders had been implemented during the Obama Administration to wire tap Paul Manafort. Mediaite then pointed out that the former Director of National Intelligence under President Obama, James Clapper, had unequivocally denied the existence of any such FISA wiretap during an interview on Meet the Press:

James Clapper was the Director of National Intelligence overseeing the surveillance and intelligence gathering of seventeen different government agencies. He has correctly asserted that if there was a FISA order to wiretap an American citizen he would know about it. CNN has now confirmed that the FBI had just such an order to monitor Paul Manafort. This leaves us with only a handful of conclusions.

CNN’s reporting is completely wrong resulting it possibly one of the most high-profile journalistic blunders of our time

James Clapper is a serial liar.

James Clapper has a health condition that has damaged his memory

The FBI under James Comey’s direction and under President Obama’s control conducted covert, renegade surveillance of American citizens without the appropriate oversight or constitutional checks and balances at such a high level that even the Director of National Intelligence was kept in the dark.

Either way, we either have a very sick man in James Clapper, or we have a scandal brewing that could shatter the media’s love affair with the Obama presidency. If they’d only have half an interest in pursuing it.

Not a damn thing will come of this...

The ONLY people who care about America and the law are President Trump and the everyday, normal American people...

I believe there will be a tipping point and it ain’t far off....

Lynch probably shook his hand too hard to intimidate him and he went to hide behind the curtains while she took care of it for him. /sarc

Trump made a huge mistake when he did not arrest Brennan, Clinton, Clapper, Comey and Lynch the first days of his administration and hired Sessions rather than a bulldog as AG.

Clapper needs to be arrested and tried, but that would require an Attorney General who wasn’t working to provide cover for the uniparty deep state,

Yep. The Obama administration, along with all the facets of our corrupt government, was spying on a Presidential candidate from the opposing party in order to negate the choice of we-the-people.

But Donald Trump Jr. having lunch with some Russian is the scandal of the century.
