CLAPPER PANICS! Says Bill Barr Spying Allegation “Stunning and Scary” (VIDEO)
Former DNI Chief James Clapper panicked after Attorney General Bill Barr said in a Senate hearing that the “upper echelon” of Obama’s Intel agencies spied on Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Yes, that includes James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence.
Bill Barr sent the Democrats and their stenographers in the media into a tailspin on Wednesday when he said Trump’s 2016 campaign was spied on.
“I think spying did occur,” Barr said during a Senate hearing. “But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I am not suggesting that it wasn’t adequately predicated but I need to explore that. I think it’s my obligation… I am not suggesting those rules were violated, but I think it is important to look at that. And I am not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly.
James Clapper ran to CNN where he attacked Bill Barr and spread more Russia conspiracy theories.
“I thought it was both stunning and scary,” Clapper, who served under Obama, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “I was amazed at that and rather disappointed that the attorney general would say such a thing. The term ‘spying’ has all kinds of negative connotations and I have to believe he chose that term deliberately.”
“It would have been far more appropriate for him to just defer to that investigation rather than postulating with apparently no evidence. He just has a feeling that there was spying against the campaign,” Clapper added.
Clapper then parroted the new narrative being pushed by the Deep State-Democrat-Media Complex.
Clapper sounded the alarm that the Russians are coming and instead of focusing on the scary Russians, “we’re focusing on this circus about whether or not somebody was spying on the campaign, which is, I think, a gross misstatement,” he said.
Rather than push back against Clapper’s absurd statements, Anderson Cooper suggested that Bill Barr is protecting Trump.
Watch Clapper stutter through his interview with Anderson Cooper:
“Stunning and scary… I was amazed,” says former spy chief James Clapper on AG Barr’s “spying” remark. “What you expect from the attorney general is some independence and objectivity, not reciting talking points that he’s heard from the President and other of his supporters.” pic.twitter.com/tFWyjrzwJA

Clapper is panicking because his fingerprints are all over Spygate.
Clapper, along with former CIA Chief John Brennan both promoted Hillary’s fraudulent dossier and now a real Attorney General threatens to expose their role in Spygate.
James Clapper spoke with CNN’s Jake Tapper in January of 2017 shortly before CNN published an article revealing that Comey briefed then-President elect Donald Trump on the dossier’s allegations.
CNN’s January 10, 2017 article about the dossier briefing was the “news hook” that the coup plotters needed in order to give credibility to the 35-page dossier which was published by BuzzFeed later that day.
House Intel Republicans grilled Clapper about this leak — at first he “flatly denied” leaking the story to CNN, then he later admitted to discussing the dossier with Jake Tapper and other reporters right before Trump’s inauguration.
Tony Shaffer slammed Clapper.
It is "stunning and scary" to Jim Clapper because Jim Clapper was involved in the manipulation of intelligence and leaking to the media… https://t.co/muclWqZEgk
