BUSTED: Former Director Of National Intelligence, James Clapper, Caught Lying During CNN Broadcast…

It is easy to get lost in the weeds if you don’t follow the details closely; however, last night James Clapper appeared on CNN to defend himself against mounting evidence he leaked, and falsified the content of a presidential briefing of an Intelligence Discussion -including the “Steele Dossier”- to CNN January 9th or 10th 2017. [Full Recent Backstory]

Before getting to the CNN/James Clapper video, it’s important to revisit the specific sequence of events. It is difficult to spot lies if you don’t have events to reference. Here’s a recap of the exact timeline of events from 2017:

Friday January 6th – DNI James Clapper, CIA John Brennan, FBI James Comey and NSA Mike Rogers briefed President-Elect Trump on their Joint Analysis Report of the Russian Election interference. (link) [POTUS-Elect released a statement]
Tuesday January 10th – CNN runs an explosive story (Jake Tapper) and article about Intelligence Officials briefing President Trump about the Steele Dossier. (link)
Tuesday January 10th – (Moments later) At 5:20pm Buzzfeed uses the CNN story as an excuse to publish the Steele Dossier.
Wednesday January 11th – The Trump transition team states the content of the CNN story [claiming President-Elect Trump was briefed on the Dossier] was false.
Wednesday January 11th – (same day) President Trump blasts CNN for pushing “fake news” about their story; P-Elect saying he was not briefed on the “dossier”.
Wednesday January 11th – (same day) NBC independently refutes the content of the prior day CNN story. Trump wasn’t briefed on dossier the Friday prior. (link)
Wednesday January 11th – (same day) FOX News independently refutes the content of the prior day CNN story. Again, Trump wasn’t briefed on dossier. (link)
Wednesday January 11th – (same day – EVENING) DNI James Clapper puts out a press release and affirms he only told the President-elect of the IC position on the Steele Dossier moments before. (January 11th – NOT January 6th) (link)

That’s the cited sequence of events, and the copy of the Press Statement by ODNI James Clapper for verification [Archived Link Here]  Pay close attention to the wording above.

Recapping: On Tuesday January 10th, 2017, CNN stated President-Elect Trump was briefed on the dossier.  An hour later Buzzfeed was publishing the dossier. The next day, Wednesday January 11th, President Trump said he was not briefed on the dossier.  NBC confirmed Trump wasn’t briefed.  Fox News confirmed Trump wasn’t briefed. Later that night, again Wednesday January 11th, DNI James Clapper notes in his statement he just briefed the President-elect on the dossier moments before.

Now, here’s James Clapper last night (March 12th, 2018) talking to CNN’s Don Lemon. It is important to pay attention to the details of this denial and the transparent motive behind why Clapper would try to cloud the events. Here’s the Clapper Interview:


The two things you’ll immediately note are that Clapper has the dates wrong, likely intentionally wrong, and Clapper is intentionally misleading on the sequence.

Clapper stated to Don Lemon POTUS-Elect Trump blasted the media on January 10th prior to the CNN/Buzzfeed story.  This is false.  The Trump Media “Nazi” Press Conference was Wednesday January 11th, the day AFTER the CNN story ran and Buzzfeed put out the dossier. For a reminder Watch:


Is Clapper “lying” or is he “intentionally misleading”, your choice on the definition.

However, given the nature of his adverse relationship with the truth -and Clapper’s motive to lower his risk as an identified intelligence leaker- he no longer gets the benefit of the doubt.  James Clapper is intentionally lying.

Lastly, and very importantly; please look closely at the highlighted sentence within this January 11th, 2017, James Clapper press release:

Note: “The IC has not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable”.

This was January 11th, 2017.   How does that statement from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper square with the Intelligence Community using that  “document”, the “Steele Dossier”, to the FISA Court three months prior, on October 26th, 2016, to obtain a FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant?

If the IC had not found the information in the document reliable by January 11th 2017, then what the heck were they doing using it for a FISA warrant in October 2016?

This is probably the single most important (and clear-cut) piece of evidence that proves the DOJ and FBI were falsifying the validity of the Steele Dossier to the FISA Court.

Any questions?

    My Crystal Ball says Comey et al. only discussed the June “pee” memo document with Trump in January 2017. Such is not a “dossier” and good reason to call them the Steele Memos. So denials about the dossier not being discussed are true, but the opposite is also in a manner true. Clapper doesn’t use the word “dossier,” he uses the word “document” which can mean a single memo, a collection of memos, or something else.

    It’s also possible Comey, Clapper etc. didn’t know about the pee memo because someone kept it away from them for being too awful. In that case, since Comey and Clapper previously relied on other Steele memos, and they are distinctive products that had to come from the same source, they might have been scared about their own positions.

    It’s complex for certain.

    Can’t argue with the truth before your eyes and ears!!

    Didn’t Comey testify that he DID brief Trump on the two page addendum? (likely only mentioning the golden shower first memo) Also hasn’t Clapper claimed to be unaware of what the FBI was up to?

    A big take away from the Trump video: It was a different Michael Cohen who the dossier claimed went to Prague. Okay. Assuming there was indeed some other Michael Cohen who went to Prague (putting aside the unlikelihood that that person met Russians), HOW did Steele/Simpson come up with THAT piece of information? Whether it was Trump’s Cohen or some other Cohen who flew to Prague, HOW did they know this? If Trump’s Cohen, then it proves they were spying on his campaign. If not Trump’s Cohen, which appears to be true (not Trump’s Cohen), then logic dictates that fact didn’t come from Russian sources, since it wasn’t true that Trump’s Cohen went to Prague to meet Russians. Another Cohen, some other guy by the same name, flew to Prague. But how did they know this? The only possible way would be by using the assets of the government to spy on political opponents, and in their haste and in a fit of excitement, failing to double check to ensure that it wasn’t another Michael Cohen.

    From Clapper’s statement: He claims the IC community was unaware of the dossier until after it had already circulated for months among the media and Congress. That’s ridiculous. We know the FBI, part of the IC community, was in on the dossier all along and that they opened a counterintelligence investigation based on it, that they used it to get the FISA warrant, and that even before it circulated in the media and Congress, McCain had taken it to the IC community, namely the FBI.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly getting the cooperation of a Lebanese-American businessman with ties to Arab royalty in his probe of foreign influence on the Trump presidential campaign, including the possibility of a back channel between the Kremlin and the Trump transition team.

    For those of you with any interest in Q, one of the reddit sites devoted to Q-related research was just banned. It was not a huge surprise to me given the “out there” nature of some of the discussions – e.g., aliens, fallen angels, nazis vs jews, pizza gate and pedos, etc. (But perhaps the most unbelievable and abhorrent topic was a word-by-word transcription of Hillary’s speech in India.)


  13. Bill says:

    Instead of punishing the CIA for just some of their illegal activities, President Trump rewards one of them by making him sectary of state. Seeking out a yes man to replace Rex Tillerson too. You tell me, are things getting better or worse?

    Julian Assange is saying:
    Appointing an actual pliers and tongs torturer to head up the CIA makes the U.S. look like Uganda under Idi Amin.
    10:37 AM – 14 Mar 2018

    I could go on and on about the negative effects of the CIA on American’s.
