James Clapper Deflects on AG Barr’s Spygate Probe: We’re “Losing Sight” of Russian Interference – Accuses Bill Barr of Playing Politics (VIDEO)

On Monday Attorney General Bill Barr assigned top special prosecutor John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia probe.

John Durham, a US Attorney in Connecticut, will examine the origins of Spygate according to a new report by The New York Times, citing two sources familiar with the matter.

As Cristina Laila reported, Mr. Durham, who was nominated by President Trump in 2017, has a history of investigating potential wrongdoing among National Security officials, reported the NY Times.


Former Deputy Assistant US Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel John Yoo told Laura Ingraham last night that Democrats should be quite worried.

On Tuesday morning former DNI under Obama James Clapper joined CNN to discuss this new investigation of the deep state investigators.
Clapper deflected and played stupid.
Via Mediaite:

“There is a substantial investigation, which as I understand it, is nearing completion, being conducted by the Justice Department Inspector General,” Clapper said. “I’d wait for the outcome of that to determine if there needs to be more investigations.”

Clapper went on to say “we’re kind of losing sight” of the fact that the investigation was caused by Russia’s interfere with American political institutions and their attempts to engage with President Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign. Clapper said that the focus at the time was in figuring out what the Russians were doing, but now, “the message I almost take away from this is, ‘well, we should have ignored that.’”

In April former top spy James Clapper said Bill Barr’s accusations of spying was “stunning and scary” – Last week Clapper admitted it was true.

Clapper also accused Bill Barr of playing politics.
