Skip to comments.Declassified Congressional Report: James Clapper Lied About Dossier Leaks To CNN
Posted on 04/27/2018 11:32:54 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Buried within a newly declassified congressional report on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections is a shocking revelation: former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper not only leaked information about the infamous Steele dossier and high-level government briefings about it to CNN, he also may have lied to Congress about the matter.
In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNNs Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.
Clapper flatly denied discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists,' the committee found.
When asked directly whether he had ever discussed the dossier with any journalists, Clapper replied that he had not, according to a transcript of the proceedings:
MR. ROONEY: Did you discuss the dossier or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists?
MR. CLAPPER: No.

Which is worse: Lying to congress or lying to the FBI?
Clapper lied to Congress.
Brennan lied to Congress.
Rice lied to Congress.
Seems to be a pattern among the Kenyanesian Usurpation’s participants.
Geez, that can get you in real trouble if you’re a Republican.
Stickim in prison
And let him catch The Clap
The end justifies the means. Any lie to get to the Statism they promise, is a good deed.
So what, says the liar. I will walk, as always.....”Move along, stupid Americans. You are not in control.”
IMHO, it crystal clear that the briefing by Comey on the Steel garbage was a setup and the start of the democrat insurance plan if Trump won the election.
Its time to lock them all up for treason.
“When asked directly whether he had ever discussed the dossier with any journalists, Clapper replied that he had not.”
Are there any journalists at CNN?
Assuming the dossier was a hoax and pretext for an investigation (I believe is was), all the conspirators should be sued for costs incurred in the investigation and to cover all the legal fees incurred by anyone forced to defend them selves. The damages could exceed $100 million. Certain media outlets should be sued along with the obvious conspirators.
What beer was served at the putsch?
Both of them lie to the people.
Where is Alfred E. Sessions?
Suing the conspirators is a great idea.
The money has been paid (mostly to lawyer friends) and that should be traced and recovered as well.
James Clapper is the poorest excuse for a man/director/general/ I have ever seen in the military or politics.
A good example of the “Peter Principal” not occurring early enough in his career. He should have been passed over for Major when he was flying around watching real pilots fly.
A true reprobate. His picture should be in the dictionary next to the definition!
I truly dislike the jerk.
DC, swarming with D.C.riminals
Hes a KNOWN LIAR TO CONGRESS!!!
Hes a Democrat...they LIE....its what they DO! That and RUIN PEOPLE!
Democrats are LAW-LESS because Republicans are BALL-LESS!!!!
And if any of Clapper's aides get thrown into prison with him, let 'em all catch AIDS.
