James Clapper Lies about Trump’s Success

As a known public liar to Congress, it is no surprise James Clapper lies about Donald Trump.

By calling Donald Trump Putin’s asset, James Clapper lies about the President and legitimizes treason against him. Clapper, remember, lied to Congress about spying on American citizens. Edward Snowden showed how much he was lying. Now, attributing Donald Trump’s America First foreign policy to Vladimir Putin’s manipulation is a gratuitous falsehood. It is an attempt to make people believe that the only reason for not risking war with a nuclear power is because one is under the control of that power.

The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Clapper: Putin Knows How to Handle an ‘Asset’ Like Trump.

Clapper appeared on CNN to discuss Trump’s national security strategy speech given Monday, where he referred to Russia as a rival but also said he wanted to form a partnership.

“Is that a contradictory message?” CNN host Jim Sciutto asked Clapper.

“Well, it is to me,” Clapper said. “I think this past weekend is illustrative of what a great case officer Vladimir Putin is. He knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the president.”

“You’re saying that Russia is handling President Trump as an asset?” Sciutto asked.

“That’s the appearance to me,” Clapper said.

When pressed, Clapper conceded he was speaking “figuratively.”
