Skip to comments.James Clapper: ‘Reprehensible’ For Trump To Call The Justice Department ‘Deep State’
Posted on 01/03/2018 6:12:42 AM PST by MarvinStinson
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said during a CNN appearance Tuesday it was reprehensible and disturbing for President Trump to refer to the Justice Department as the deep state.
Clapper said, I think its reprehensible to use that phraseology. I guess who that refers to is the career civil servants who are patriots dedicated to the country. Id point out that when you take the oath of office as a civil servant you swear to uphold the Constitution.
He continued, It doesnt say anything about pledging loyalty to this president or any other and if not doing so is what constitutes being part of the Deep State, I think that represents a fundamental misunderstanding of what this country is all about and what this government is all about and I find that characterization disturbing.
This is in reference to President Trump tweeting Tuesday morning:
Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump
Crooked Hillary Clintons top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others 7:48 AM - Jan 2, 2018

Happiness is seeing James Clapper dancing at the end of a rope.
Clapper the pathological liar.
James “what bombing” Clapper
Clapper is a toad and an idiot.
Correct, Mr. Clapper, and when they (and you) violated that oath they (and you) became part of the "deep state"...
“It’s reprehensible that you have accurately identified us. How dare you!”
And yes, justice will only be done when Clapper and all those like him swing from ropes.
ClapTrap, you’re the worst part of it!
It is reprehensible for James Clapper to have ever had the position that he had.
He's a damned quisling muslim sympathizing Hillary-loving piece of human excrement.
And I would tell that to him...face to face...on the steps of the US Capitol building and DARE him to refute it.
He IS the problem, not the solution.
Clapper is an Obama commissar who is adept at lying rectification. Deny, deny ,deny the obvious about Comey, McCabe , Lynch, Holder and their cabal, dress well , look serious, get on TV and fools begin to believe you.
Clapper SHOULD be in Prison for LYING to Congress!!
I guess who that refers to is the career civil servants who are patriots dedicated to the country...
ROFL!!!! LOL!!! ROFLMAO!!!
Did he say this with a straight face?!?!? :)
lol!! Patriots. Dedicated to the country!!! :)
“It’s Gold Jerry!!! Gold!!”
Except, of course, that it's a long but unbroken line up the org chart to see that he is your boss. Loyalty to your boss really is a requirement, as Sally Yates, for example, realized too late.
Clapper's tweet on Iran this morning is the laugh of the internet. He's as Deep State as they come.
Trump calling a spade a spade.
“......when you take the oath of office as a civil servant you swear to uphold the Constitution.....
Too bad those who previously were, and still are working for odumbo and his ilk, missed that part.
Hey Clapper: where in this vaunted oath you swore is there room for an “insurance policy” to take out the President, like your boy Strzok said?
Since Clapper was instrumental in creating the Deep State, Trump is clearly on the mark.
If you look up “Deep State” in the dictionary, there is a picture of James Clapper next to the entry.
