Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper – who much like former FBI Director James Comey is peddling a book right now, accused President Trump of twisting his words after a bizarre interview on The View on Tuesday.
When Clapper was asked if the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign, he replied “They were spying on – a term I don’t particularly like, but on what the Russians were doing.” (By sending a spy to perform espionage on several members of the Trump campaign)
