Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released their final report on the Russia investigation.
It contained bombshell findings.
And one eye-opening portion of the report revealed Obama’s Intel Chief is in hot water over this lie to Congress.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has a history of lying before Congress.
In 2013, he denied the existence of Obama’s warrantless surveillance program.
Edward Snowden’s leaks proved that to be false.
Now he has been caught again.
The Republicans’ report found that Clapper misled Congress in his testimony that he never had contact with CNN.
In fact, Clapper may very well have been the source who leaked the fake news Steele dossier to CNN.
Republicans found that he was not entirely truthful when he denied his media contacts.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“A House Intelligence Committee investigation of Russian election meddling has concluded that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper misled Congress about disclosing information to CNN.
The committee’s final report on the investigation was approved on Thursday and now awaits an intelligence agency review…
… On the former DNI, the report says that Clapper, now a contributor to CNN as a national security analyst “provided inconsistent testimony to the committee about his contacts with the media, including CNN.”
A CNN spokeswoman did not return an email seeking comment. Clapper could not be reached for comment.”
It was CNN that first broke the news that Obama’s top intelligence officials – including James Comey and Clapper – had prepared a briefing for Trump on the existence of the Steele dossier.
The dossier included claims that the Russians had compromising information on Trump.
This story led Buzzfeed to publish the unverified dossier in its entirety.
And that decision kicked off the collusion conspiracy theory that has consumed much of the so-called “mainstream” media for over a year.
Clapper’s alleged leak to CNN was ground zero for that story.
And it’s about time he be held accountable.
