On Sunday Clapper denied reports that the Obama administration was spying on Donald Trump.
The Hill reported:
Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper on Sunday denied President Trump’s allegations that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower before the election.
During an interview on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Clapper was asked if he would be aware if something like that had happened.
“I would certainly hope so … Obviously I can’t speak officially anymore,” Clapper said on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
“But I will say that for the part of the national security apparatus that I oversaw as DNI, there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president-elect at the time, as a candidate, or against his campaign.”
