All the swamp creatures are doubling down on their Russia narrative, even as the house of cards is crumbling around them. James Clapper is the latest to insist that Russia turned the election for Trump. So stupid.
Facepalm: Obama Spy Chief Says Russia Decided Outcome of 2016 Election
Obama’s former spy chief, James Clapper, is on a roll as of late. The ex-Director of National Intelligence has come to the defense of the intelligence community…
Despite multiple politicians involved in the investigation into Russian collusion on the Hill, Clapper says the Russians “decided” the election.
Here’s a partial transcript:
Judy Woodruff: What did you mean?
James Clapper: Well, first, I need to make clear that, when we did our formal intelligence community assessment in January of 2017, we didn’t make any call at all about whether the Russians affected the outcome of the election. We didn’t have the authority, charter or capability to do that.
Since I left the government, though, as a private citizen, it’s what I would call my informed opinion that, given the massive effort the Russians made, and the number of citizens that they touched, and the variety and the multidimensional aspects of what they did to influence opinion and affect the election, and given the fact that it turned on less than 80,000 votes in three states, to me, it just exceeds logic and credulity that they didn’t affect the election, and it’s my belief they actually turned it.
