James Clapper, pathological liar and former Obama DNI, claims just because Hillary Clinton and the Dems paid for the political hit piece dossier doesn’t mean it’s not true…
It’s important to remember who you’re dealing with in when James Clapper, who lied directly to Congress about the extent and manner of surveillance on American citizens, is presenting himself as an honest authority on intelligence matters.
He’s not well respected, not by any stretch of the definition is he honest, and he’s not considered an authority on intelligence. He is the proverbial useful idiot who will do or say whatever he’s told, and that is why Obama had him as his DNI and the reason he’s frequently interviewed on CNN.
It is important to remember that the “Intelligence Assessment,” which appears to be much different than its original form when published in January, was a rush document. It was produced in under thirty days, by Obama’s order, to provide the appearance of legitimacy for political moves and operations that would follow.
In the video, Clapper attempts to salvage the credibility of the fake dossier, the network, Hillary Clinton, the Democrats and himself. He says, “With respect to the dossier itself, the key thing is it doesn’t matter who paid for it. It’s what the dossier said and the extent to which it’s corroborated or not.” The fact that it’s a hit piece produced by Trump’s enemies is a non-issue, he claims.
Clapper says, “We had some concerns about it from the standpoint of its sourcing, which we couldn’t corroborate. But at the same time, some of the substantive content, not all of it, but some of the substantive content of the dossier we were able to corroborate in our intelligence community assessment from other sources in which we had very high confidence in.”
Corroborated is spook talk for truthful or almost truthful. So what he’s saying is, to the degree that it is truthful in parts, it might be okay to believe those portions of the dossier, but he won’t say which portions they are. It’s vague by design, in order to imply guilt that doesn’t actually exist on the largest scale possible.
The CNN witch, Erin “Bruja” Burnett, takes it from there and draws the bottom line, that because Clapper says there is a small, secret portion that appears as though it may be true, such as the address of a hotel, the entire work of fiction cannot be dismissed.
She takes it one step further, saying, “So when the President just refers to this as a fake dossier, that is false.” She’s stretching it a lot even for Lyin’ Jim, but he eventually comes around, saying, with a nervous laugh that screams deception, “I don’t think that’s an accurate characterization for the entirety of the dossier. And I think that what has not been corroborated has yet to be determined.”
That which has not yet been shown to be untruthful is undetermined because they’re not going to get off the Russia, Russia, Russia until they’re forced off and everything is being kept secret. It’s also important to remember that the same folks who paid for the Trump Russia dossier, the Democrats in the DNC, also ordered the “intelligence assessment” that Clapper produced, which is no less a work of fiction than the dossier.
It’s worth noting that Clapper has been on an anti-Trump mission since before the inauguration. In June of this year he addressed the Australian Press Club, telling them, “I have to say though, I think, you know, compare the two, that Watergate pales, really, in my view, compared to what we’re confronting now.”
There’s nothing like a little foreign soil betrayal to solidify a deep state operative’s credentials. Watergate does pale in comparison, as does all of the Clinton corruption, but the guilty parties are not the ones he and his Democrat comrades have been condemning.
