James Clapper’s Backpedaling intensifies [Video]

[VIDEO] Leave it to a progressive leftist to come up with a term like “benign information gathering” to rename the art of spying. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper coined this phrase to deflect from the actual fact of spying on the Trump campaign. May no mistake about it, there could be nothing “benign” about the Obama administration looking into the workings of the Republican campaign. If you believe Mr. Clapper, then it was the Russians that were being spied upon, not the aides to Donald Trump. If that was the case, why were these people trying to assist by trying to entrap those aides?

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)

In response to Clapper’s statement, President Trump tweeted: “Clapper has now admitted that there was Spying in my campaign. Large dollars were paid to the Spy, far beyond normal. Starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in U.S. history. SPYGATE – a terrible thing!….
