DNI Clapper Posts Statement About Trump Discussion in Advance of Senate Intelligence Hearing Tomorrow…

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper releases a statement about a conversation held with President-elect Donald Trump this evening:

dni-report-2(Link to Statement Release)

Against the backdrop of the current media stories, Director Clapper is simply trying to get out in front of -and avoid- direct questions which will be coming at him tomorrow during a Senate Hearing about the “vast Russian conspiracy”.  Clapper’s motive here is transparent.

Benghazi-Gate Investigation: Just Get It Past The Election.... At.All.Costs. "Cue James Clapper Sword Falling Routine"....Tomorrow James Clapper, John Brennan, James Comey and Mike Rogers are due to brief the Senate on the intelligence community findings of Russian hacking etc.   Someone was going to ask Clapper directly about the CNN report.

The questions were, perhaps still are, going to go through the panel thusly:

Question #1.)  Director Clapper did you brief President-elect Trump on anything surrounding the content of a two page addendum or index during the briefing you provided last Friday?  Was the addendum discussed?  Was any part of a 35 page dossier discussed?

Question #2.) Do you have any idea how a false framework of the Friday intelligence briefing would have reached CNN?

Question #3.) Director Clapper, did you or any member of your staff leak the content of the briefing with President-elect Donald Trump to any member of the press?

Question #4.) Director Clapper, do you or any member of your staff, have any information about how the construct of the briefing was revealed to CNN or any media outlet?

The answers therein, were going to destroy the manufactured IC/Media narrative being sold by CNN.   Clapper needs to get out ahead of the controversy. Clapper knows what CTH knows, and what CTH has outlined.

With President-elect Donald Trump taking an assertive and investigative stance toward intelligence manipulation and leaks, Clapper is simply trying to head off inquiries which might stem as an outcome of Trump’s investigative request to congress.

Nothing more.

      Not necessarily…….McCain is in on this…Golden Shower somehow ends up on his desk …why? and he forwards it to FBI who thinks it came from a credible source.. Who would say Trump had been briefed on it already? …someone who wasn’t at the meeting but who assumed Trump was briefed becuz that someone knew what was in the fake news document…all roads lead to McCain with Marco and Graham in tow…did u see the way Marco ran to CNN today after his childish querying of T-Rex? Very very nervous boy. Sumpin is up alright.

        Alternatively, CNN simply made it up.

        They did it with the secret service story, and they’ve done it on other occasions.

        I agree that in this instance, all roads seem to lead back to McNasty, but we should never lose sight of the fact that cnn will just make it up when necessary.

        I’m thinking you are right, benifranklin. McCain’s hatred of Trump is worse than his feelings about Obama. Trump impugned McCain “honor”— he’s crafted a long career off his war hero status. He also appears to be jealous of Trump’s victory.
        McCain is a usurper who works in the shadows and I’ll be stunned if Clapper is asked by anyone on that Committee this question: “WHO gave IC the info in his 2 page addendum and exactly when?”
        Americans should be very alarmed at the games being played by our own IC to undermine a US President! They are seriously sowing more doubt about their truthfulness and patriotism. Dems are also making the IC sound nefarious with ominous warnings to Trump to back off or IC will get him!!

        Yes, I saw that, too. I forced myself to watch Tucker Wednesday evening to see how he would cover the day’s events. With the single exception of Professor Cohen, I was not disappointed in the utter, useless BS Tucker had on. I know many here like the fact that he allows his “guests” to drone on and on, but last night was completely insufferable. It was 100% gaslighting bs said with no contradiction on Tucker’s part. Beyond, of course, the usual, “thanks so much for being here.” (side note: I stayed with it to see what Hannity would have and was not disappointed. Very good interviews; FNC screwed up by not moving Hannity into the 9p slot. Just MHO)

          Am not certain you understand Professor Cohen, redlegleader. I believe the “US Forces” to which Prof Cohen refers (from psadie’s comment above) are the Black Hats, which are, indeed, trying to take President Trump down before President Trump gets into office.

    So, do we really expect the Swamp Dwellers to “get to the bottom of it”? McShame and Shumer will get to ask questions, right?
    The Swamp Dwellers and the Clapper/Brennan team have similar goals, and those goals have nothing to do with finding the truth. Dog and pony show, as per usual practice. I would be mildly entertained only if they start pointing fingers at each other, which is unlikely.

  26. I would hope that the questions posed by SD are asked but I wonder who on the committee would ask them. Two of the Republican members – Ryan and McConnell are avowed enemies of PE Trump.

    The statement from Clapper does not address the central issue of whether or not PE Trump was briefed on the 2 page synopsis of the garbage 35 pg report. KAC has said PE Trump was not briefed on the 2 page synopsis which destroy’s the basis of the CNN report.

    Tonight CNN was spinning the Clapper statement as “contradicting” PE Trump’s assertion that CNN is fake news. If KAC is correct PE Trump should insist Clapper amend his report to state that he was not briefed.

    In the statement Clapper says the leak didn’t come from IC. What leak is he referring to? If it is the leak to CNN describing the contents of the classified briefing where else could it come from?

    This is turning into one of the greatest gifts in the world. Beyond the embarrassment that has been bestowed on CNN, IC, McCain and others, this in my mind is killing the whole Russian’s hacked the election BS. In my mind we are so close to the 20th that this gift will remain in the news for a while coupled with the hearings will kill their plan to deligitamize our President. Once he is officially sworn in, the rapid speed that he will do to move his agenda will be like a tsunami. That will become the news and the winning will become so apparent to everyone that we will be begging for more.

    It will also allow us to work with Russia as our President said today to eviscirate ISIS from the face of the earth. It is what binds us together. I believe our Lord’s master plan is to have the 2 largest christian countries, with the means, destroy Radical Islam. What American is going to say no to that especially as we are kicking ass together around the world. Once again the winning will be so apparent and folks will fall in love with it.

    I saw a glimpse of it at the Army/Navy game. The cadets absolutely loved him and adored him. Vern Lunqvuist, the announcer, was in awe of what he was witnessing. He admitted it felt like a Trump rally. For those 8 minutes our President was in the booth, what was happening on the field absolutely didn’t matter.

    That in my mind is the greatest compliment that could ever have been bestowed on our President. In a historic rivalry, between 2 military branches, DJT was bigger than the game because our cadets forgot about the game to show their admiration for thei Commander-in-Chief. Americans will do the same about the scenarios I presented above.

        In this case, the people being saved are we the American People, and our progeny; being saved from the swamp and its keepers. GOD has a hand in this, it’s clear to see. I think we need to pray that GOD shines a light on the deceit and criminal acts of the swamp dwellers, and covers Trump, Pence, their families and Trump’s appointees with His Might, Grace, and Wisdom, and strengthens and guides them.

    So McCain could not determine whether this was legit?

    Trump is not a stupid man.
    Trump owns hotels.
    Trump knows that peeing on a matress would only cost the hotel.
    Trump knows that peeing on a bed after someone slept on it could in no way hurt that someone.

    This alone would tell anyone with a brain that it could not be legit.

    Therefore, McCain has no brain.

    From Clapper’s statement – “I emphasized that this document is not a U.S. Intelligence Community product and that I do not believe the leaks came from within the IC.”

    If one is to take this statement at face value and assume that it is true, then from where did the document and the leaks come?

    Again, from Clapper’s statement – “…private security document…widely circulated…among the media, members of Congress and Congressional staff…”

    May I also suggest, the White House? Supposedly only the IC knew of the meeting with President Trump last Friday, no one else – except the White House.

    Oh what a tangled web we weave
    When we practice to deceive.

    Get ’em outta here.
