The liberal narrative about Trump being wiretapped by Obama is beginning to shift. How much do you think it pained James Clapper to admit this on CNN?
From Real Clear Politics:
Clapper: “Possible” That Trump Was Recorded On Manafort Wiretap, “Conceivable”
Wednesday night on CNN, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said it is conceivable that then-candidate Donald Trump was picked up in a wiretap of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
DON LEMON, CNN HOST: Is it possible the president was picked up in a conversation with Paul Manafort?
JAMES CLAPPER, FORMER DNI: It’s certainly conceivable.
LEMON: Is it likely?
CLAPPER: I can’t say. I wouldn’t want to go there, but I will say it’s possible.
The next day, Clapper told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd he can’t speak officially, as he had retired, but that his department did not oversee a wiretap on candidate Trump. He added he could not speak on behalf of the other 3 intelligence agencies authorized to do so.
“The president’s allies say the fact that Manafort was wiretapped proves that the president was right to accuse the former president of wiretapping him and you were wrong. What’s your response?” Lemon asked Clapper.
“Well, again, I stand on that statement that you just replayed and I cannot comment on the media reporting, which is all we have, about a FISA warrant allegedly lodged against Mr. Manafort. I can’t comment on that. I will simply reiterate what I said in March, and I stand on that,” Clapper responded.
