Ironically, the House Intelligence Committee that found Michael Flynn innocent also found that Obama’s DNI James Clapper likely lied to them.
The House Intelligence Committee found that James Clapper lied to Congress—”misled Congress”—regarding what he had disclosed to CNN, the network that is now his employer.
It is ironic that this same investigation found that Michael Flynn should not have been charged with lying to the FBI.
Here’s Clapper telling CNN that Flynn’s guilty plea was “real.”
The Washington Free Beacon reports, “House Probe Accuses Clapper of Misleading Congress.”
A House Intelligence Committee investigation of Russian election meddling has concluded that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper misled Congress about disclosing information to CNN.
The committee’s final report on the investigation was approved on Thursday and now awaits an intelligence agency review.[…]
“The committee found no evidence that meetings between Trump associates—including Jeff Sessions—and official representatives of the Russian government—including Ambassador Kislyak—reflected collusion, coordination, or conspiracy with the Russian government,” the list states.
The report also said former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI regarding conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak “even though the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents did not detect any deception during Flynn’s interview.”
The finding suggests the FBI improperly charged Flynn.
The Obama administration also failed to notify the Trump campaign that members of the campaign were assessed to be counterintelligence concerns, the report said.[…]
On the former DNI, the report says that Clapper, now a contributor to CNN as a national security analyst “provided inconsistent testimony to the committee about his contacts with the media, including CNN.”
