Clapper said he found the President’s rally “downright scary and disturbing.”
Clapper denounced Trump’s “behavior and divisiveness and complete intellectual, moral and ethical void.”
“How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, endure this nightmare?”
Clapper, who for years ran illegal spying rings against Americans, should be in prison not talking on CNN. He is a traitor and criminal to this nation.
The passage of more than three years hasn’t cooled the insistence in certain quarters that Clapper face charges for an admittedly false statement to Congress in March 2013, when he responded, “No, sir” and “not wittingly” to a question about whether the National Security Agency was collecting “any type of data at all” on millions of Americans.
About three months after making that claim, documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed the answer was untruthful and that the NSA was in fact collecting in bulk domestic call records, along with various internet communications.
To his critics, Clapper lied under oath, a crime that threatens effective oversight of the executive branch. In an apology letter to lawmakers, however, Clapper said he gave the “clearly erroneous” answer because he “simply didn’t think of” the call-record collection.
How much longer does America have to endure Clappers legacy of illegal spying against us?
