ABC hero Clapper admitted under oath he was lying all along

Donald Trump’s alleged Russia links will dwarf Watergate scandal, says James Clapper.

So he told the assembled lightweights of Australian journalism at the National Press Club in June 2017:

The man privy to America’s darkest intelligence secrets for the past six years has predicted Russian links to the Trump administration will dwarf the 1970s Watergate scandal which sunk the Nixon presidency.

… he watched Russian meddling in the months leading up to the presidential election last November, and has concluded it made a concerted and determined attempt to derail Mr Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton.

 
When interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee under threat of perjury charges, however …

 
Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also admitted under oath there was never any evidence of collusion. These are the transcripts Adam Schiff had under lock and key. Now we know why. They prove “collusion” charges against Donald Trump were manufactured. Exposed in the same week as proof positive emerged that Mike Flynn was the victim of a James Comey-led set-up, the Russia Hoax has indeed dwarfed Watergate. James Clapper was right about that. This goes all the way to the Oval Office.

UPDATE:  “Shifty Schiff… uses the world’s smallest collar… He’s really a sick man.”

    If this is allowed to stand without a legal sanction then there is no longer an American Nation.

  2. Sniff sniff…I smell an indictment for that smug prick.

    All along I have said here Clapper is one of the chief villains of this deep state thuggery.

    Would he get sent to a military prison and be stripped of all rank?

  3. Megan

    Agree, PB. If this is allowed to slide then it’s all over for the Land of the Free. A real life lesson in how easily civilasations can collapse.

    ABC studiously ignoring or playing down all of this.

    I wonder if ANU will demand the return of the money he pocketed as a visiting professor?

  6. If the Demoncrats and their lapdogs working on making the coronavirus as the Trump’s undoing, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Karma!

  7. The US Studies Centre based in Sydney University should reprimand the ABC.

    Ooops, I forgot. They’re in it too.

    They did their job , and it worked . Half the Dems out there firing up people to hate and harass Trump and any of his team , the other half , the deep state, giving them a reason why it’s OK to harass people in public and not be called irrational, nobodies an idiot for hating a traitor. Try telling a Trump hater about any of the FBI wrong doing, they will reply ” it doesn’t matter he’s a dick ” they have been given a license to be irrational for over three years , their Not changing their minds.

    TC, agreed

    the same in the climate change zone, Gleik lied and commited fraud, he was not touched by it, because his heart was pure

    there are no consequences on the left

  10. I often think that if you could remove the political Left and the media (especially the media) from the world for just one year, I suspect that no one would want them back at the end of that year.

  11. Catfeesh?

    Has Rachel Madcow given her perspective yet?

  12. Tim Neilson

    The US Studies Centre based in Sydney University should reprimand the ABC.

    Or as Gerard Henderson calls it, the USeless Studies Centre, not one of whose pundits gave the Orange God-Emperor any hope of winning in 2016 – 100% wrongology expressed with absolute certainty.

    the same in the climate change zone, Gleik lied and commited fraud, he was not touched by it, because his heart was pure

    He’s actually being rehabilitated, receiving new appointments etc.

    They haven’t yet, though, reappointed him as head of the scientific ethics and integrity committee which he was when he committed the fraud.

    Donald Trump’s alleged Russia links will dwarf Watergate scandal, says James Clapper.

    He could be telling the truth, still waiting for a plausible explanation for Watergate and why Nixon resigned.

    … he watched Russian meddling in the months leading up to the presidential election last November, and has concluded it made a concerted and determined attempt to derail Mr Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton.

    “He” (Clapper) didn’t watch any fucking thing; but how did the ABC know that he (Clapper) watched very specifically something ? (a) – they made the whole fucking story up then sold it on the taxpayer’s dime.

    What is amazing about this whole shameful saga is that the Obama coup plotters excited their efforts on television screens all over the world and never for one minute contemplated the notion that they may get found out, even eventually. As for their ABC, well, what is there to say, other than they once again display they they are nothing but progressive shitheads that will believe anything that a penis with ears says.

  16. Bob in Castlemaine

    Can US presidents be impeached retospectively? Just asking.

  17. nb

    In its quest for truthiness our ABC delivers another coup.

    Australians who rely on Australian mainstream media for honest and accurate coverage of appalling politics in the USA are being short-changed and often misled.
    Apart from the usual large leftoid contingent in most newspapers and commercial TV, we even have Cameron Stewart in The Australian (their main man in the US) being a TDS sufferer most of the time. I can’t recall him really telling it like it is about the Russia hoax, the empty Mueller Inquiry, FISA warrants, dodgy impeachment, framing Flynn or who knew what and when.
    A bit of Fox News in the mix does help one’s understanding of what’s going right or wrong over there.

  19. cohenite

    Can US presidents be impeached retospectively?

    The point of impeachment is to remove a POTUS for non-criminal offences. Still, it would be an interesting process because the arrogant magic negro’s legacy would be shat on; as it deserves to be. But it would take 60 senators to approve it. Fat chance.

  20. jupes

    ABC studiously ignoring or playing down all of this.

    Anyone who watches the ABC thinking they will learn something is an idiot. Watching the ABC literally will make you dumber, because if you do watch it you will believe the following:

    Donald Trump colluded with Russia.
    Donald Trump deserved to be impeached for his phone call to the Ukrainian president.
    George Pell is a p*do.
    Australian CO2 emissions caused the recent bushfires.
    Aborigines lived in villages and had farms.

    I could go on. Imagine living life that ignorant.

  21. Tel

    I could go on. Imagine living life that ignorant.

    Even worse … imagine being ruled over by people that ignorant and made to do their bidding.

  22. Perfidious Albino

    We had a slick young chap from the US Studies Centre come and give a ‘briefing’ on the state of the world at the office one lunchtime towards the end of last year. It was facilitated/MC’ed by another chap from one of the Big4 banks.

    I can honestly say it was the most partisan, Trump is Hitler, diatribes I have ever heard live – quite embarrassing in a corporate setting. He was one of those Hillary true-believer shills who clearly saw himself as one of their foreign policy elite. Apparently all the US embassies around the world are just ‘hunkered down’ waiting for Trumps reign to be over and studiously working against/around and lawful directions from their President.

    He did at one point acknowledge that the royal ‘We’ had gotten globalisation wrong (leading to a rise in nationalism). You should have seen him splutter when asked who the ‘We’ he was referring to was…

    Flogs.

    Can US presidents be impeached retospectively?

    No, but he can be charged with crimes committed while he was in office.

    Or more likely, just take all his henchmen to court and burn down his ‘legacy’ by the evidence and testimony presented.

    Where we go one, we go all.

  26. Wayne From Perth

    Apparently it was apparent very early on in the Mueller inquiry that in fact the Russians favored Hilary and their feeble social media efforts were to that end.

    Look, the Russians will interfere in everything and on all sides.

    Left, right, Hillary, Donald, Joe, Bernie, they don’t care. They want maximum diversion and confusion.

    Actually, I mean Russia’s Putin establishment.
    I know plenty of decent Russians who don’t want this shit.
    It’s hurting them.

    It’s up to us how effective we let it be.

    Their most effective intervention in Western countries by far is in the anti-fracking movement.
    Man, what a bunch of useful idiots!

    Even then, the low oil price cap caused by US shale is killing them.

  30. Zatara

    Oil prices are suffering suffering because Saudi and Russia were having a peeing contest, not US shale.

    See – 2020 Russia–Saudi Arabia oil price war

    “Donald Trump’s alleged Russia links will dwarf Watergate scandal, says James Clapper.”

    Sure will – not any “scandal” involving anything team Trump did, but rather the lengths various Obama era “IC” people did – Clapper, Halper, Comey et al. With what has been (finally) made public, we know the FBI knew Steele Dossier was junk, but used it anyway. FBI lied about when they had this dossier, they hid from FISA court exculpatory evidence etc etc. Big, big issues for FBI – at least for the “big boys”. Other info indicating that Steele dossier was actually created by US IC people and “fed” to the FBI via Steele, then “confirmed” by the same IC people. Ugly, very ugly.
    They HAD to get rid of Flynn because as a seasoned head of DIA, he knew exactly who to ask and where to look to find out what was really going on, and they couldn’t let that come out. So after they tried and failed to find anything to pin on him, they decided to use a perjury trap. Oh dear.

  32. Zatara

    Another huge find in the forced release of the Mueller/Russia/Impeach transcripts

    John Podesta admitted under oath that the DNC and the Hillary Campaign split the cost of the Trump-Russia dossier.

    Hillary Clinton and the DNC both claimed they knew nothing about the Trump-Russia dossier when it was published by Buzzfeed in January 2017.

    John Podesta says he didn’t know the Clinton campaign was paying Fusion GPS.

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz both privately denied to congressional Russia investigators that they had any knowledge about an arrangement to pay for opposition research on President Donald Trump, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

    Podesta was Clinton’s campaign manager and he lied his arse off, until he was under oath in “secret” testimony that is. Recall also that the supposed “hacked” Dem/Clinton emails, which they refused to let the FBI investigate, came from Podesta’s personal account.

    Can’t wait to see what goodies are in the next tranche of documents.
