Clapper back in March told Meet the Press that when he issued a January 6th multiagency intelligence community assessment about Russian interference in the election, the report didn't include evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, essentially saying he hadn't been aware of any such evidence up through January 20th, his last day in office. On Sunday, he said that didn't necessarily mean there was no such evidence, because sometimes he left it up to agency chiefs like former FBI Director James Comey to inform him about certain things. "I left it to the judgment [of] Director Comey," Clapper said, "to decide whether, when and what to tell me about counterintelligence investigations." Clapper said something similar when he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Monday. In prepared remarks, he essentially said that there was nothing odd about his not being informed about the existence of an FBI counterintelligence investigation involving Donald Trump's campaign. Speaking generally, Clapper seemed to imply that the Trump-Russia-collusion scandal, the thing colloquially known as #Russiagate all over the world now, may have originated in information gleaned by the intelligence community, who in turn may have tipped off the FBI.


So now Clapper is backtracking on is definitive statements about the Trump Investigation. Why? It seems he's hoping enough time has passed where everyone forgets about the "wiretap" claim. But network dude, how do you KNOW they tapped Trump's phone? You have no proof!

To that I say, they were investigating Trumps campaign. Where was his Campaign headquarters? Could they use surveillance WITHOUT tapping the phones?

Please note that this isn't a partisan argument, it's about if Trump lied or not. It seems he didn't. It was my contention at that time, that somebody told him that was the case. He didn't manufacture that out of thin air, but we needed confirmation.

I am always amazed that you state this so 'matter of factly', when most people I know would be rather embarrassed to state that they place so much trust in Television.

Yet here you are on an almost daily basis, using propaganda from the likes of CNN and MSNBC to base your world view.

God help us........

The media shapes the worldview of anyone who pays attention to them. Whether you believe they're being truthful or not they are shaping your worldview one way or the other by the simple fact that you (not you in particular) pay attention to them and go on to form opinions based on what they say, whether for or against.

This is something people seem to be blind to, the fact that the media is driving the current narrative. Whether you believe they're lying or not they are still telling you where to look and what to be outraged about.

They've got people hooked and that's on both sides of the fence not just the side that trusts them.

Oh I get it tv bad...
News bad.

I don't care whether you like me saying I saw it on tv. I don't care about your opinion of my sources.
The news has always been a trusted source of information. Until the uninformed, I don't read idiot in the whitehouse started claiming it was fake.
What a joke.

I would hope that the sitting president and the intelligence agencies would investigate both candidates running for the upcoming presidency to make sure they are not a threat to our countries sovereignty. But Obama was all for a one world government, not our countries sovereignty. So was Hillary, as long as she had control of our countries people, she was for the NWO running the world.

The problem is not that Obama and the intelligence agencies did surveilance on Trump and Hillary, it was what was done with that evidence after Trump won. Hillary had too many skeletons in her closet, the leaks on those came from other sources than Obama's team and the intelligence agency. These leaks of information need to be stopped, heads need to roll. We cannot have our government's security being jeopardized like this. This leaking is far more disrupting than anything Russia and ISIS is doing, it is treason.

I seriously think you're full of it. I can't think of anyone on this planet with a partial brain that would say that and actually frick'n believe it. NO ONE. You can't be that ignorant, you just can't. I don't believe a word your saying and haven't for awhile BTW along with some of your other cronies here.

And yet, when a breaking event happens like someone ran their car over some people, everyone- and I mean EVERYONE turns to the news to find out what's happening.

Believe it or not, people still look to the news on tv to find out what's going on.

Yep. I think it will be poetic justice. The left screamed for this "special investigation" and it's going to hang Clinton. I am not sure if I will be able to keep the smile off my face.

This is something I've been thinking about.

What if the proof all these Trump lovers keep clamoring for is proof that was obtained illegally andntherdore we can't use it until we can discover it legally?


As in.. through Snowden we know we can tap any electronic device anywhere period.

What if the NSA has all of Try ps calls recorded.. and they tipped off the FBI and members of Congress that he's colluding with Russia.. but they can't give and release the proof bc it was obtained illegally.

Therefore all they can do is out it out into the media through anonymous sources and hope investigations can pull evidence that supports what they know is true.

No, not everyone. There are two specific websites that I go to for information. They are both excellent at pulling in staggering amounts of information at short order. The collective knowledge (as in, proven time and again, not just claimed) on those sites would put an encyclopedia to shame!

Neither of the two sites are ATS, unfortunately, though this site is gradually improving and doesn't spend as much time behind the curve.

Lots of what ifs...If this is true then Hillary and Obama would have been indicted long ago...The bottom line you are a perfect example of many who want Trump to fail no matter what. Even if it takes down the country so be it, that is how far many have gone now..

You know I am starting to worry that Trump is right about all of this and that, the press looks stupid ect (Trump "Teflon Don, Harry Truman" ect) but still wont be able to deliver much other than respect and hero warship for being unbeatable. Is this big tax bill really one of those classic back door recoups? Will the middle class ever get relief from the real damage of the AHCA......x3 premium increase with higher deductible for those that could pay.
