Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer said on Fox and Friends “Jim Clapper is an idiot,” who gave him “a vacant look” each time he “briefed him on complex operations.” Mr. Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence (DNI), questioned President Donald Trump’s fitness to be in office after his rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday.
“Apparently Jim Clapper now has a PHD in analyzing people remotely,” he said. “Look, I’ll be blunt about it. Jim Clapper is an idiot. I have briefed that man several times on complex operations… and when I did… you could just see this vacant look.”
Lt. Colonel Shaffer is a former Green Beret and spy. As he notes, one of Mr. Clapper’s deputies illegally leaked classified information and it was at his direction. The case has been referred to the Justice Department (DOJ).
“I don’t know how anybody gives Jim Clapper any credibility at this time,” he said.
Mr. Clapper is best-known for lying to Congress when asked by Sen. Ron Wyden whether the U.S. intelligence community collects Americans’ metadata on phone calls and over the Internet without a warrant. Edward Snowden later revealed that he was lying.
Don Lemon, who interviewed Clapper after the President’s speech, did not ask him if and why he misled lawmakers and the nation over Russia’s alleged hacked of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). He admitted in May that he personally “hand-picked” analysts from three agencies–not the 17 previously and incessantly reported–who drafted the so-called intelligence community’s assessment.
In reality, it was Mr. Clapper & Co.’s assessment, not the agencies’ themselves.
The Nation, a leftwing magazine, recently reported on an analysis conducted on the so-called hack, which concluded it wasn’t a hack, at all.
“I’ve looked at the work and it shows there was no Russian hack,” Edward Loomis of VIPS told The Nation.
Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak—a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system.
