James Clapper, the former director of National Intelligence has been telling audiences on CNN that the government was right to place spies in the Trump campaign and has maligned Trump every time he gets a chance and on CNN that means at any time.
But he has made a shocking confession. He has seen no evidence of Russian collusion of any kind. He did say there are warning signs… (Donald Trump Jr was seen putting Russian dressing on his salad and President Trump is covering it up) This investigation began before Trump was even elected and $16 million has been spent by Mueller, 10 million in just the last year alone.
“I saw no smoking-gun evidence of collusion before I left the government, and I still haven’t,” Clapper told Vox in an interview Thursday to promote his new book, “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From a Life in Intelligence.” “There is a lot of circumstantial evidence and reasons to be suspicious, but no smoking gun as of yet.”
Clapper did say he was interested in the number of contacts between members of the Trump campaign and people linked to the Russian government. He wrote in “Facts and Fears” that “the dashboard warning lights were all lit.”
“I certainly wondered about [collusion] when I saw the frequency of meetings between people in the Trump campaign and people with ties to the Russian government,” said Clapper, who now works as a CNN analyst.
A recent poll shows that 59% of those interviewed say that Mueller has nothing on Trump. Meanwhile, liberals and the media point to the 19 indictments handed out by Mueller as proof that collusion existed. But, let me point out that 16 of those indictments have pretty much been disproven.
The truth is that Mueller never expected anyone to answer them but his bluff was called and we found out that one of the companies he indicted didn’t even exist at the time he said they committed crimes and the three individuals who were indicted does not and never have worked for Concord Marketing as Mueller claimed. That leaves three other indictments. Gen Flynn was indicted for lying to investigators and Manafort is being
persecuted prosecuted for a matter from 2005. Not one legitimate indictment comes from Russian collusion.
