Why in the world would the mainstream media continue to take James Clapper seriously?
In March the former Director of National Intelligence under President Barack Obama appeared on Meet the Press to respond to President Donald Trumps now-infamous tweets regarding a wiretap related to his campaign during the Obama Administration. Host Chuck Todd asked Clapper point-blank whether any wiretap had occurred:
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, or as a candidate, or against his campaign. I cant speak for other Title Three authorized entities in the government or a state or local entity.
