Former Spy Chief Now Admits It’s Possible Trump’s Voice Was Recorded in Wiretap
During the 2016 Presidential Campaign Donald Trump claimed repeatedly that he had been (or was being) wire tapped. Most often he referred to “Trump Tower” being wire-tapped, using “Trump Tower” as a reference to his campaign given that thats where his campaign Headquarters was located.
The claims brought swift denunciations and an enormous amount of ridicule specifically from news networks like CNN, Intelligence officials and late-night talk show hosts. Specifically, long-time Trump critic James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence flat-out denied the existence of even a FISA court order that would have allowed for a wire-tap to happen.
Well… re-enter James Clapper.
Just this week, it has been announced that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped both before and after the election.
On CNN today, Clapper maintained he was “not aware” of a FISA warrant against Manafort. He did, however, have something else interesting to say.
“It’s certainly conceivable,” Clapper responded.
“Is it likely?” Lemon pressed.
“I can’t say,” the former spy chief responded. “I wouldn’t want to go there. I will say it’s possible.”
Clapper, along with other DNIs have said repeatedly that any FISA court order targeting an American Citizen would not happen without their knowledge of it.
Whats most interesting about this is that there will be no retractions from CNN, late-night talk show hosts, liberal pundits. It will just remain that, in the end, Trump may very well have been correct.
