Former DNI James Clapper Denies Any Impropriety in ‘Unmasking’ U.S. Citizens During Surveillance

Trump Russia Congress
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper categorically denied any political or “voyeuristic” motive to the “unmasking” of Trump campaign associates when he addressed the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism Monday.

“At no time did I ever submit a request for personal or political purposes or to voyeuristically look at raw intelligence, nor am I aware of any instances of such abuse by anyone else,” Clapper told the Committee in his initial address.

The denial comes after suggestions of potential impropriety were levied against National Security Advisor Susan Rice as reports surfaced alleging that she had requested the identity of American nationals whose communications were intercepted by American intelligence agencies in the scope of the investigation into Russia’s suspected interference into the 2016 elections.

Monday’s hearing was held to discuss the investigation conducted by four U.S. intelligence agencies, and ordered in December by former President Barack Obama, into Russia’s attempts to influence the elections. Clapper testified before the Judiciary Committee along with former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

    THESE IDIOTS IN WASHINGTON HAD BETTER GET THEIR HEADS ON STRAIGHT AND FIND OUT ABOUT THE BELOW.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST. PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON THERE.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Hasn’t he already been exposed as lying under oath in a previous testimony before Congress?

  • Richard Bagenstose

    morons expecting some one to tell them the truth after they lied to them year after year ,if he told the truth he would be hung for treason ,but if oboma and hillary would think he would flip on them he would be found dead in his bed like scolia

  • Nana Monster

    He’s lied under oath before…what’s going to stop him from doing it again??

  • Cadfael

    This Semantics Artist would not “…recognize the truth…” (John 8:32, and the motto of the C.I.A.) if it bit him in his rear end. He is in dire need of an interrogation by Trey Gowdy!

  • doesn’t any one of these liars go to jail

  • Dee

    I was waiting to see him fiddle with his ear like he did last time he was lying . Yates is a Bum Too . Thank Goodness their both gone . I’d like to see the other Bum Rice get prosecuted !

  • maxx

    Right! And if you believe that I have some beautiful beachfront land in Florida that I can sell you very reasonably. Susan Rice probably learned about honesty and integrity from this slime ball.

  • Rodney Steward

    People this is just a con game, they don’t have plans to do anything except to make the American people think they’re really doing something, it’s a joke! Ask them a question, they say I can’t answer that at this time! All this is doing is costing us money, all for show, but I guess it’s better than anything Holly Wood has come out with in a long time! But they both are guilty as sin!

    • Retired

      Isn’t that the Game Plan to stall things for the 2018 election , well it is going to bite them big time .

      • Rodney Steward

        It sure is my friend, and I just heard that Comey just got fired by Trump, true I hope!

        • Pete

          About time, the Senators and Representatives were willing (only in strictly private meetings) to voice their fears of reprisal should they get on the wrong side of Comey. This guy was a loose cannon with way too much power & both political parties were afraid of him.
          He should have been canned by Obama years ago and Trump should have done it on January 29th.

          • Rodney Steward

            I agree friend, but he covered for Hellary till he see she was going to lose,then he halfway told the truth!

          • Harry J Schaubel

            If Pres. Trump had fired him immediately, there would be more talk than now about how it was because of the Russian allegations. But, as stated in his letter to Comey informing him he was terminated, effective immediately, he thanked him for his service and for stating 3 times that Pres. Trump was not under investigation for the Russian BS Line the Dems have been pushing and pushing.

          • NotJim

            “Russian BS Line the Dems have been pushing”

            Putin has to be soundly punished for having any friendly words for Trump. Not in the Dems’ narrative.

            I would wager that Putin was less than impressed with Hildebeest’s “reset button”.

          • Rodney Steward

            I agree about Obama should have fired him, but he did cut the Obama clan a lot of slack, and the DOB Lynch was a thug!

        • Harry J Schaubel

          He was fired on the recommendation of the DAG (his Boss) & the AG because of the misconduct during the Clinton Investigation. Both sent letters to Pres. Trump stating that Comey needed to be removed. Cited “Lack of Confidence” from the American People as one of the reasons.

          • Rodney Steward

            Exactly, and the way he did with Hillary, I’m sure played a big role!

        • Retired

          One Of the Big Swamp Rats gone . Clinton just ordered a big load of depends after getting the news ,she can’t change them fast enough .

          • Rodney Steward

            HA, HA, and several cases of tater juice to go with them!!

  • Robert Iandolo

    I don’t trust this guy! He has one of those faces.

  • Noah Rosenblum

    Clapper must be prosecuted and put in a cell in Gitmo, along with Obummer and his entire administration !!!!

    • Retired

      Clapper needs some water treatment at GITMO so he will tell the truth .

      • Harry J Schaubel

        Truth??? From The Clapper? Might as well ask for truth from Clinton, Holder, Rice, Obama, and a host of others who’s only purpose in life is self-enrichment thru the government corruption.

        • Retired

          Add Schumer and Peeelosi for a free vacation at Gitmo .

  • Rick D.

    I wouldn’t trust Clapper as far as I could throw him. He’s never met a liberal he didn’t like. And, that sneaky slimeball would do anything to undermine Trump!

  • bobnstuff

    Let’s see. Someone it talking to the Russians and the AG wants to know who it is. Had there been no lies by Flynn we might not have ever heard about it.

    • Rodney Steward

      None of this would have ever been a problem at all if Hellary had never sold Russia 20% of our Uranium to start this whole game! Another Dem. thing! 🙂

      • bobnstuff

        So tell me just how Hillary sold Russian Uranium? Did she own it? Did she have total control of it? It is amazing that one person could have that much power. Oh wait one person doesn’t have that much power. And how much Uranium has Russia gotten from us? Are we sending it to them? Can they even sell it to anyone? Who controls the production of Uranium in the US? I think the man in charge of our Uranium right now is named Perry. We might just be in trouble.

        • Rodney Steward

          My God bobby, she done this while she was working under the clown, you DON’T know anything about this EITHER!! Where do you live, google it bob, this is old news!!

          • bobnstuff

            You as so easy to fool. If you check she was one of a number of people who gave a Canadian company the OK to be sold to a Russian company. So we didn’t own the Uranium in the first place. Now a Russian company has the rights to mine uranium for the US government. In case you didn’t know the US government controls all the uranium in the country. So now explain again just how Hillary gave our uranium away.

          • Rodney Steward

            Re-google bob, it was coming from Nevada and another place out west, why Reid was fighting so hard to take back all the Gov. land from the farmers that caused the murder of Lavoy Finicum!

          • bobnstuff

            The right to mine had already been sold long before Clinton. That didn’t change. The only thing that changed was the name on the company stationary.

            There was no take back of government land, the government own it all the time. You have ranchers that don’t think they should pay rent to use land that doesn’t belong to them. That’s BLM business. It’s kind of like your family rents a house for years and years. That doesn’t mean you own it or have any rights beyond those in your lease.

            None of this had anything to do with the Sec. of State anyway. The only involvement was with the change of ownership of one foreign company to another. Who can mine what and where is the department of interior. Uranium is controlled by the department of energy once it’s out of the ground.

        • Retired

          Why are you acting stupid ??? Clinton was wheeling and dealing as SS . Her Foundation income proved that after losing the Election .

          • Pete

            Bob has an impacted cranium.

          • Retired

            Poop does harden when dried out .

          • Pete

            It is the migration of the muck from the ears to the brain that causes the strange mental outlook. Once hard (as you so aptly stated) it becomes permanent.

          • Olaf Thunderfoot

            Why do you assume he is acting?

    • Harry J Schaubel

      Yes. Flynn appeared on Russian TV and was paid $30k+ (forget exact amount), and did this with the full knowledge of the Obama Admin. AND NOTHING WAS SAID ABOUT IT. Flynn became undesirable after he started criticizing Obama’s lack of plan or action against ISIS.

      • bobnstuff

        This will go much deeper the Flynn. The trouble isn’t the actions, it’s the lying. The cover up is what takes down presidents. Both Nixon and Bill Clinton didn’t get in trouble for their actions. Trump is no student of history or he would have handled this differently. Trump has sown the seeds of his own downfall. The actions of the administration over the next few weeks will make or break things. Lets hope for Trumps sake he doesn’t water those seeds.
