Report: James Clapper Was Leaking Intelligence Reports to CNN During President-Elect Trump Transition (January 2017)…

This story today from Sara Carter is really interesting because CTH outlined the foundation of this back in January of 2017.  According to an article published today by Sara Carter her congressional sources have told her of an investigation into former ODNI James Clapper and his leaking of “intelligence information” to CNN in an orchestrated effort to damage the incoming Trump administration.

Sara Carter – Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper allegedly leaked information to CNN early last year regarding the classified briefings given to then President-Elect Donald Trump and President Barrack Obama on the salacious dossier claiming the Russians had compromising information on the president-elect, according to government sources, who noted the evidence of the leak was collected during the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation. (keep reading)


Here’s why it’s particularly interesting.  Back in January of 2017, we noted a series of events between James Clapper (ODNI), John Brennan (CIA) and Jake Tapper (CNN) that appeared transparently obvious about creating a specific narrative.  CTH Timeline:

January 10th, 2017 – CNN Frames “Russian Narrative” – The anatomy of a media smear (link).
January 11th, 2017 – President Trump confronts CNN – “You are fake news” (link)
January 12th, 2017 – Confronted by the Trump Transition Team, independent NBC and Fox News Reporting, CNN’s Anderson Cooper attempts to defend CNN Propaganda (link)
January 15th, 2017 – Bob Woodward calls out CNN, Jake Tapper, John Brennan and James Clapper for false statements and indefensible politicization of institutional U.S. intelligence agencies (link)

In essence the week beginning January 10th, 2017 was the origin of the vast ‘Muh Russia’ conspiracy/collusion narrative against the incoming administration.  The CNN report pushed by Jake Tapper was also the distribution of leaked information James Clapper and John Brennan.  This false narrative was specifically the origin of the “collusion” angle.

James Clapper appeared nervous and playing CYA when he released a statement trying to cover-up his leaking of information to CNN.  Remember this?



Yeah, ODNI James Clapper was protesting his innocence a little too much.  The narrative was noted almost immediately:

January 15th, 2017 “[…]Four political operatives at CNN (Jake Tapper, Jim Scuitto, Evan Perez and Carl Bernstein), colluded with two highly politicized top level Obama administration intelligence officials, ODNI John Brennan and CIA Director John Brennan, under the auspices of leaks from “anonymous senior intelligence officials” – on the construct of Russian narrative to undermine the incoming presidency of Donald Trump.

After being called onto the carpet, and doused in sunlight for their endeavors, CNN has been rabid in their attempts to obfuscate the construct of the intentional hit job and defend the indefensible.

CNN has spent the better part of every single broadcast for the past six days trying to justify their role in carrying out the synergistic political objectives of the politicized intelligence community and media propaganda.  They have failed.



Well, well, well…. Now let’s fast-forward to today, March 12th, 2018:

[…]  according to government sources Clapper, who is not mentioned in the report released Monday, had spoken to CNN at roughly the same time Jake Tapper broke the first story regarding the briefings conducted by senior intelligence officials with Trump and Obama on the dossier. Tapper’s story, which published in January 2017, created a snowball effect of allegations in the media that Trump’s campaign had allegedly colluded with the Russians in the 2016 election and that Russia had compromising material on Trump, sources with knowledge of the investigation concluded.

Clapper was one of four senior Obama administration officials to brief Obama and Trump on the dossier in December 2016. FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan and National Security Administration Director Mike Rogers were also present at the December briefings.

Clapper nor Tapper could be immediately reached for comment.

The dossier, which was compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, at the behest of embattled research firm Fusion GPS, was already being shopped around by Steele to journalists in Washington as early as the summer of 2016, according to reports. At the time, journalists who had heard of the dossier were reluctant to publish the findings because of its unverified content.

“[Clapper] gave the dossier legs and news agencies began to publish its contents because it had now become official news…”

But it was when CNN published the first report that Trump and Obama had been briefed the dossier’s findings that other news agencies began to report on it. The committee found evidence that Clapper, who is now a contributor at CNN, contacted CNN shortly before the story was published by Tapper, Evan Perez, and Jim Sciutto. The story detailed the briefings given to Trump by the senior officials on the contents of the dossier and “gave the dossier legs and news agencies began to publish its contents because it had now become official news,” one congressional source told this reporter. Shortly after CNN published the report, Buzzfeed made the decision to post the entire 35-page dossier and referenced the CNN report in its decision to publish it, according to the website.  (read more)

      My vision of what happens to Clapper for his support of the illegitimate and criminal enterprise that was the obola regime: he will be applauded and praised for his fine service to the country and the “president”, make lots of money and acclaim writing phony books and appearing on television and making speeches to audiences anxious to be deceived, be appointed to various boards of directors, find work as a security expert and eventually die a free and happy man….. until he meets his Creator. At that point he’s probably in for some surprises.

      Have you seen how many people inside the DOJ and FBI have resigned in the last 12 months…that we know about?

      How long do you think it would reasonably take to clean out the DOJ and FBI of corrupt lawyers and agents after decades of abuse? Less than a year? More?

      So many questions, such a rush to condemn. Ho hum.

      • Scout says:

        Interesting. Clapper confessed. Prosecution refused. Can be prosecuted right now with no more evidence required, must do a plea with the confession on record, this in no way prevents prosecuting him or others on other matters.

        And it would terrify Comey and Brennan, which alone makes it a worthwhile exercise. Day 418, no prosecutions, tomorrow.

      Don’t worry. If Sessions has an assigned prosecutor like we think he does, and if this is one of the counts (among the others) we expect him to be indicted on, then they have already secured the indictment under seal well before the statute of limitations. As long as that occurred then it tolled the SOL and will be unsealed in due time.

      There seems to be a bit of “serious” conversation along these lines. There is a coherent article at American Thinker today on this subject.

      As others have suggested, The President and his team may well “have a handle” on these things.
      However, I am thinking hard and long on my beliefs and motivations.

      Are we really “this close” to a coup being carried out? It is too obvious that one has been attempted and condoned by the highest levels of our government. But has it been stopped? And would public prosecutions make the situation better or worse? At least in my case, such prosecutions would make ME feel more comfortable, but would it just drive the wedge deeper into the tree?

      I am sure many will recommend patience here; however, some hint of individuals being held accountable for their actions would be sorely appreciated.

        Why do you think our President secured military support as one of the primary features of his campaign? It is not just because they have the stuff that goes BOOM.
        He does LOVE our armed forces, but he has surrounded himself with people that are watching his back.
        I just wish he could get back the ones that the obomination let go when they indicated that they would not order their troops to fire on Americans.

    Otherwise, the feeling of many ‘regular Americans’ that there are
    two systems of justice in our country will be justified.
    One large difficulty is the sheer number, and magnitude of the crimes.
    These crimes have rarely been seen in America’s history,
    let alone in a combination that appears to be an attempted coup d’etat.
    The alternative, nobody is held accountable, would surely embolden

      I may be wrong, but this whole thing has an ad-hoc feel about it. They were so secure in their power that they may not have realized they needed a central plan until it was too late (thus Rice’s hail-Mary CYA). Trump’s win floored them but they adapted well. But they won’t be sloppy next time, and THEY WON’T HESITATE TO USE VIOLENCE IF THEY THINK THEY NEED IT TO SUCCEED.

      1) Investigations are still on-going. How long do you think it would take to fully uncover, document, and collect the necessary evidence of decades of gov’t corruption?

      2) Relatedly, don’t you think it would be a good idea to coerce and force the resignations of corrupt DOJ lawyers and FBI agents…for example…before trying to bring charges against Deep State corruption and players….or do you think it’s a good idea to try to convict someone like Hillary Clinton in a Ruth Bader Ginsberg court with Eric Holder as a prosecutor and James Comey as the prosecutor’s witness? Have you seen how many resignations have taken place in the last 12 months, that we KNOW about??

      3) PDJT and AG Sessions have an obligation to do what they can to prevent sparking a 2nd civil war. Part of that is the NECESSITY of ensuring that any accusations that they are politicizing the DOJ for political purposes fall flat…based upon the evidence #1 is unearthing. Another part of this effort is carefully undermining the credibility of the MSM, so that when it DOES inevitably attempt to make this claim, people will scoff at it.

      All of the above takes TIME.

      So, you asked for one reason. There are 3 good ones. There are a lot more, but this should so for a start.

        The DOJ regulation Sessions cited Saturday — 28 CFR 45.2— says “no DOJ employee may participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution, or who would be directly affected by the outcome.”

        The rule goes on to define a political relationship as “a close identification with an elected official, candidate, political party or campaign organization arising from service as a principal advisor or official.” A personal relationship “means a close and substantial connection of the type normally viewed as likely to induce partiality.”

        The former Alabama senator told the audience that regulations state that if someone participates in a campaign, then they can’t investigate that campaign, and he called that “pretty reasonable.”

        “I was chairman of the National Security Committee of the Trump campaign and participated in it. So I didn’t feel like it was, that’s what I was advised, by the professionals, career people in the department and I felt like I had to recuse myself,” he said.

        So, do you think the “big boys” care if some of the lower twerps get arrested or even sent to prison? Do you think they may even want them to get arrested and go to prison?

        This is a deep coup to take out a sitting President. Do you think the ‘big boys” would be just happier than all get out, if some were arrested and then: Then…

        Our attention turned elsewhere….focus off the main goal…sure some go to prison, but families probably taken care of etc.
        But the investigations stop. This may be exactly what they want.

        We should all take a step back and realize that this is very serious business. Losing our country serious. Demands for arrests are all well and good and may give us temporary satisfaction.

          “Give one reason why Rosenstein is needed”

          1) to prove to the American people that have been deceived by MSM that PDJT really is not “Hitler” and has been patient and fair while this baseless “witch hunt” has been proceeding.
          Mr. Sessions had to recuse, so that left Mr. Rosenstein “in charge” of all things Russian.
          If Mr. Trump would exercise his constitutional authority and fire Mr. Rosenstein and/or Mr. Mueller, than because of the biased MSM he has a MASSIVE public relations disaster that will be used against him for the rest of his Presidency.

          As things slowly progress, it is much better if Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller fall on their own accord because of Uranium One. Now that the “collusion” myth has been dispelled, things can begin to progress -i.e. exposure and education of the deceived masses concerning Uranium One.

    We can clock the statute of limitations, monitor the leaks, expose the FISA abuses and surveillance;
    what we can’t do is know who Mueller has given immunity to with Rosenstein’s blessings. This is my back door fear. How can Mueller go after Manafort and not Podesta? There must be a deal. Comey feels comfortable leaking and writing a book. He now will do publicity tour. There must be a deal. I hope I am wrong.

      FWIW, Mueller is over-hyped by leftists everywhere, and he does nothing to dispel it. It’s that hype which gets air time. Look at how the media spins his asinine indictment of Russian trolls and front companies – as if they’re notches on his pistol handles. That plays well with other leftists, but not in Peoria. Mueller has thus far delivered crumbs and fakery.

    I doubt Clapper will comment to media inquiries about this matter. Nor will Tapper. Why? They’ve been lawyered up for a while.

    My guess is that the Inspector General’s report will be the start of the big ugly on March 15th, the Ides of March. When this goes down I expect the financial markets will be very turbulent in the same manner as they were after the Nunes memo became public. The enemy within will probably arrange some diversion to try to control the news for a while. I just have a feeling we are really close to “game time”, fellow Treepers.

    Does anyone believe the IC did not know of the dossier long after it was being shopped around to the media?

  43. This is a quote from Sara Carter’s artcle

    “the Committee majority and minority agreed to four parameters for this investigation, covering Russian active measures directed against the 2016 election and against our European allies, the U.S. Government’s response to those attacks, links between Russians and the Trump and Clinton campaigns, and leaks of classified information.”

    It would appear by that quote alone the House Intelligence committee has concluded ALL investigations into 2016 election.

    Of course one of the main aims of the traitors has been to create enough misinformation to ensure that Queen Hillary is never investigated. Amazed at how many DS operatives were in thrall to such a loathsome deceiver.

          • as much as I would love to trust Sessions….we have open defiance here, from mayors to governors ignoring Federal law, we have elections we are losing because people so hate President Trump based on lies and false accusations from the media, we have 7 million dollars spent on a lie, where Mueller is still going strong. Our Country more divided than ever. People NOT respecting this President and you know why because seditious acts have been allowed to stand, because treason has been allowed to stand, because the guilty walk around free lying slandering, dividing, excusing NOT charged…and this sickens us, this is dividing us/this nation. where MAGA is not allowed to proceed because of obstruction. Nominees not going through because of obstruction. You have the democrats as deficient and as evil-getting away with crimes and lies and slander, you have protests out of hand that are absolutely vile. AND you want us to trust Sessions, gee wiz I would just love to, but this Country is in serious problems and what CA * Chicago/IL, and NYC are doing, they should have been arrested, if we did such things we would have been-heck we would have been assassinated, and what are the Democrats doing to our President-the lack of respect their words are heinous yet they accuse him of being brash,…… Sorry I am one of his supporters that lost my daughter (she hates me because I voted for Trump and has cut ALL ties with me) because of my support for President Trump, I am one that went to rallies and received a brutal push back, I have been waiting for 2 years for this to lessen up-and yet even with this clearance of “Russian Collusion” what do we have but CNN stating” it is not worth the toilet paper it is printed on” So when are we going to (excuse language here) shyte or get off the pot, let us just go to full blown civil war at this point, I am sick of waiting, my heart hurts for this nation, that we are so darn corrupt now! Yes I would just love to trust Sessions….but….

              Sorry to read of your family discord. Your personal experience is definitely an issue of concern as we “wait patiently”. I don’t feel you are a fair weather fan at all. You are justifiable in your personal angst. My brother lives in LA and before this election, he was never very politically vocal/active. This time….wowsie. He does live in the belly of the beast however. As a family, we tend not to discuss political things. I guess a bit easier since the rest of us are here in Georgia. Mostly the emails that go back and forth are about cars and other interests like that. Cars are valid (not talking about weather) since dad and other brother are car folks.

              I noted on the other Clapper post from yesterday that I think March and April are the months for action…..if there will be action as May/June have 29 primaries. Action needs to take place then for effect on primaries. Once primary season starts, MSM will make sure Oxygen is sucked out of the room.

              Good luck.

            • I completely sympathize with your family situation. I will never understand how my own adult children have grown up to be left leaning, liberal Dems who hate Trump. The only answer is obviously that they went to state run public school indoctrination centers. It’s not that they learned how to think, they learned what to think about politics. They don’t hate me but sometimes I become enraged at their stupidity. They are good people in every respect, but are politically illiterate.

              As far as Jeff Sessions- it always seems too little too late. Trump must have a reason for keeping him on. I guess we should have faith.

              What I am most worried about is that Pres. Trump has made some mighty powerful enemies who are not afraid to go as far as getting rid of their opponents with “extreme prejudice” if you get my drift.

              I pray for POTUS every day, that God will give him strength and keep him safe. He is a mighty warrior and I can’t imagine where we’d be without him. Just looking at those videos of Hillary Rotten and Choom Boy make me sick to my stomach.

                I live in the belly of the beast, and was pressed to retire early because of my (suspected) conservative views.
                My family is NeverTrump but although we’ve had some screamfests, no one has cut me off. Just AWFUL that Leftists/NeverTrumps are so vicious and narrow-minded.

                I realize that it’s hard to wait for justice to prevail but investigations have to be perfect. It’s not like the Trump admin will get the benefit of the doubt, especially after years of pretending the Good Guys are the guilty ones.


        • jameswlee2014 says:

          I thought just like you until Sundance revealed that Sessions was running a prosecutorial investigation parallel to the IGs investigation but had to keep it secret even from Trump. So, it appears that Sleepy Jeff is actually a fu*^$#g piranha and one of the few guys in Washington who can keep his mouth shut.

      Those at the “top are of the food chain” have much to lose….

      Brennan and Clapper had their secret surveillance system– THE HAMMER (Wikileaks Vault 7 THE HAMMER (Hamr))….

      See Whistleblower Tapes: Trumped wiretapped “a zillion times) by.Brennan’s and Clapper’s surveillance system THE HAMMER…..

      Dennis Montgomery handed over the proof to Comey and his FBI counsel James Baker…the evidence, when one document sat atop the next measured 30 miles high …

      Montgomery was granted limited immunity by onetime head judge of the FISA court Judge Royce Lamberth in exchange for those documents. Montgomery also told that Mueller’s FBI supplied the computers for the illegal surveillance system.

        And thrice afterwards. These enemies of the American Experiment can count on a corrupt political/media machine to spin for them, but it ain’t working no more.

        Every investigation launched by tbe Left is ensnaring only, the Left.

        I believe that Mueller’s dirty game as a Special Criminal is itself a great crime, an obstruction of the search for truth and justice for the many crimes that he and his cronies perpetrated, and still are.

        The Clapper Two-Step:

        What FISA warrant?
        I never saw a FISA warrant come across my desk, and I would have if there had been one.

        Oh. There’s now proof of a warrant?

        That dossier was only used for a renewal of the FISA warrant that I never saw!

        Oh. There’s proof it was used in the first application?


        And besides, I’ve always said I never saw any evidence of collusion.

        What do you mean, we’re supposed to have verified probable cause to obtain a warrant?
        Nobody ever told me that!


        Nobody ever wittingly lied to the FISC judge.

        No. I have never lied, all I I’ve ever done is say the least untruthful thing I could think of.

          They declared certain information “States Secrets.” The truth is not germaine in that case, …covering up the crime is most important to protect Obama, Brennan and Clapper

          … Comey took possession of the evidence. Past FISA Court head Judge Lamberth awarded CIA Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery limited immunity in exchange for the documents that came from Brennan’s and Clapper’s illegal surveillance system, known as “The Hammer” All Docs were given to Coneys FBI and his counsel James Baker.

          The Docs were initially dropped by a Federal Judge (one assumes accidentally) in a court case.

          Within hours of publishing “Whistleblower Tapes…” Wikileaks dropped CIA Vault 7 proving the existence of the illegal surveillance system known as The Hammer. (Hamr)… that was exposed in those docs. Montgomery confirmed. Nunes apprised. …The scheme puts the weaponized IRS in context.
