    A member of the House Committee on the Judiciary said during a hearing Thursday that a government watchdog found that nearly all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity and that the FBI didn’t follow-up on that finding.The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas...

    Smith-Bundt Modernization Act, Obama and Voice of America The Obama administration has been caught lying, spying, and propagandizing. In a cosmically outrageous attempt to defend the indefensible, the radical leftist Obama lemmings have decided that lying, spying, and propagandizing are not only acceptable - they are desirable - for our own good of course. OH MY! In an astonishing display of arrogant disregard for the Constitution and its protections, James Clapper unapologetically announced that he spied on President Trump to protect him - REALLY?? Just how stupid do Obamas sycophants think we are?

    Former President Obamas intelligence chief on Monday said he hoped special counsel Robert Mueller would wrap up his Russia investigation soon and tell the country whether there was any collusion between Moscow and President Trumps campaign. I think the overarching point here is that this whole issue has to come to a resolution, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in an interview with Hill.TVs new morning show, "Rising." At some point special counsel Mueller and his team I hope will wrap up the investigation and clear the air one way or the other whether or not there was...

    The Justice Department inspector general has referred five FBI employees for investigation in connection with politically charged texts, revealing in its report on the Hillary Clinton email case that more bureau officials than previously thought were exchanging anti-Trump messages. The long-awaited report largely dealt with the Justice Department and FBI's handling of the Clinton case but uncovered numerous messages that appeared to mix political opinion with discussions about the MYE investigation." MYE, or "Midyear Exam," was the code used in the FBI to refer to the investigation into Clintons private email server. Some of these text messages and instant messages...

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday he would make unmasking requests to reveal the identity of a U.S. citizen every couple of weeks during a more than six-year period. His comments about unmasking were made to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, who asked about then-President Barack Obamas U.N. Ambassador Samantha Powers testimony in which she said other people had used her name to make unmasking requests. Mr. Clapper said he did not know how that could happen, and that during his time as DNI director, he would make a unmasking request once every couple of weeks, something...

    The Democrats ongoing quest to topple the president. The new House Intelligence Committee report finds no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. The former FBI boss tasked with finding the collusion, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, recently announced that President Trump is not his target. This has left many observers puzzled, but one Russian actor may be able to put things in perspective. In the 1981 Fort Apache the Bronx, police officers throw a man off a roof. Many American viewers were horrified but Russian actor Yakov Smirnoff had a different take. This is nothing, Smirnoff said. In Russia,...

    Boy, the Democrat Party must be in tough shape if they are marching "useless" Adam Schiff, John Brennan and James Clapper out to the Obamabot/Clintonite media to provide cover for the Obama/Clinton, low life, DOJ & FBI. Putting these three buffoons in the public face will only be a major negative for the Democrat Party when the day is done. Nothing, nothing, is going to prevent the American public from soon learning that the master chef of this farce investigation is none other then ex-POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama.

    I'm not talking about the unmasking of persons caught up in the Obama administration's illegal surveillance of everyone connected with Trump and his campaign. For that, there's been more than sufficient evidence. If you need more while we wait for the OIG reports, here are some excellent summaries: Sharyl Attkisson's timeline of the events and Mark Steyn's review: As I think most persons paying attention now realize, the investigation into foreign interference with the 2016 election was created as a cover for domestic interference with the 2016 election. ... Brennan and Clapper and Comey and McCabe. They took tools designed...

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in a new interview that parts of the infamous Steele dossier of alleged ties between President Trump's campaign and Russia have been corroborated by subsequent U.S. investigations. In an interview with Salon, the Obama-era intelligence chief stressed that while the most "salacious" claims in the dossier have not been proven to be true, "more and more" of the dossier's other claims about the president and his allies' ties to Russia have been corroborated over time. "Some of what was in the dossier was actually corroborated -- but separately -- in our intelligence...

    Obamas former spy chief, James Clapper, is on a roll as of late. The ex-Director of National Intelligence has come to the defense of the intelligence community. Last week, it was reported that Stefan Halper, a longtime CIA operative and Cambridge University professor, spied on the Trump campaign, trying to make contacts with George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, and Sam Clovis. Yet, to Clapper, this isnt spying. It was just a confidential source trying to glean information under false pretenses to see if there was any Russian collusionand so far, there hasnt been any evidence to suggest the Kremlin was tipping...

    We have been fed an unending line of BS from James Comey, John Brennan and James Clapper. Clapper, in particular, has been a source of egregious deceit. He's been lying for some time. Remember this one? "Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?" committee member Sen.Ron Wyden(D-Ore.) asked Clapper during the March 12 hearing. In response, Clapper replied quickly: "No, sir." "There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect [intelligence on Americans], but not wittingly," the U.S. intelligence chief told Wyden and the rest of the committee. That...

During that interview, this exchange happened between Clapper and co-host Joy Behar: BEHAR: "So I ask you, was the FBI spying on Trump's campaign?" CLAPPER: "No, they were not. They were spying on, a term I don't particularly like, but on what the Russians were doing. Trying to understand were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage or influence which is what they do." BEHAR: "Well, why doesn't...

Clapper said Wednesday on 'The View' that the president should welcome the use of an informant who gathered information about his campaign's Russia contacts, since the purpose was to gather intelligence about Moscow's nefarious plans. Trump, however, is turning that to his advantage... ...It's the third time...

In his book, Facts and Fears, Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence, Clapper claims the two Republican leaders did not want to sign anything that would hurt their partys nominee. Clapper was disappointed, but not surprised, he also wrote. Ryan and McConell have not responded to the claims.
