Clapper: Itís ĎA Good Thingí FBI Was Spying On Trump Campaign
Daily Caller ^ | 5/18/2018 | Julia Nista

Posted on 05/18/2018 10:11:02 AM PDT by ding_dong_daddy_from_dumas

Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.”

Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So, if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, that’s a good thing.”

He also stated he believes “it’s hugely dangerous if someone like that is exposed because the danger to that person” and the potential “reluctance of others to be informants for the FBI” could possibly devastate the FBI

Why worry? Clapper is just a crazy old man? Not so fast. Clapper and Brennan were witnesses that the mindless Senate Intel Committee heeded to reach the conclusion that "The Russians" must have helped Trump. Otherwise, Hillary would have won.

What these idiots are doing is making a compelling case for letting the Trump administration secure FISA warrants on everyone remotely associated with the campaigns of his 2020 challengers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The FBI has already devastated itself.
What’s hugely dangerous is their exposure to criminal charges.

Kind of like that we would use the corruption democrats laid out - - but use it against them? The 'Never Another Democrat President As Long As We Live' program? That one?

Communist totalitarians are going to be communist totalitarians.

Someone needs to send an apology to Richard Nixon. I guess they thought differently then.

This is very dangerous to our Republic. That these people are openly saying these things proves how close we are to the abyss.
If we don’t make some (loud) noise we will see our freedoms slip away.

So refreshing to see the ‘elite’ in “cover yer ass” mode.

He knew.

He authorized it.

IF anybody goes to trial, he’s going to be found guilty.

If found guilty, maybe he goes to jail.

2008 happened, and NOBODY EVEN WENT TO TRIAL.

Wrong. Now that it’s a Republican POTUS “there must be reform so no abuses wil take place ever again ”. So the Rats will in effect get a mulligan and get away with spying on a opposition presidential candidate and it won’t happen again.

Clapper should be next after every Obama and appointee plus the Clinton crime family. The Clinton’s were and are the greatest danger to America next to the Obama fags/Muslims, commies, etc. Clapper is a disgusting man who will lie/do anything for power/money.

You know with Kerry talking to Iran and Clapper with EU, they are both conducting foreign affair non-authorized meetings — FISA with NSA up their backsides.

"The Russians" must have helped Trump. Otherwise, Hillary would have won.

As a stand-alone theory, with none of the mfg encumbrances, one can see how completely absurd that is.

====================================

Of all the spurious excuses she gives for her loss, the most ludicrous is that
Hillary says she lost her "sure-thing election" because "Putin doesn't like me."

Comey predictably sucked up--told Congress Putin wanted to “harm Hillary.”

Hillary once bragged that she, alone, was brought into Putin's inner sanctum
where she assured Putin she was worried about wildlife like he was.

Putin whispered to an attentive Hilary that they were BFF.

Secy Hillary and Obama were eager to please Russia w/ the friendly reset button.
Hillary later said the reset gambit was Obama's and her idea "to strengthen Russia."

==============================================

Ex-Pres Clinton is s-o-o-o-o friendly he traveled to Russia to clinch the uranium giveaway deal.
And to pocket a $500,000 dollar speaking fee from a Moscow bank plus a sizeable commission.

Billybooboo even laid his "Hot Damn Hokey Hillbilly Act" on Putin.
