Former Director of National Intelligence and current CNN contributor James “I Lied To Congress And Got Away With It” Clapper stammered through his interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday, admitting that he may be a target of U.S. Atty. John Durham’s investigation, now officially turned into a criminal probe by Atty. Gen. William Barr. As BizPacReview notes:
Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper seemed to struggle with his poker face as he reacted to news of a DOJ criminal inquiry.
The current CNN contributor spoke with Anderson Cooper about reports of the transition of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review into the origins of the Russia probe into a criminal investigation. And his body language spoke louder than his words.
“What do you make of this,” the CNN host asked on “Anderson Cooper 360.”
“Well, I’m very curious because presumably, I guess I’m one of those under investigation,” Clapper replied, peppering his sentence with several uses of “uh.”
“Uh” rhymes with “duh” which is the reaction to growing suspicions that based on his actions and mounting evidence that perjurer James Clapper anf Lt. Gen.. Michael Flynn might be headed in opposite directions – deep state point man James Clapper headed to prison for sedition,, along with deep state political hack John Brennan, both charged with helping to orchestrate a coup against a duly elected sitting President Donald J. Trump.
Sidney Powell, the attorney for Gen. Flynn has filed a motion to dismiss the charges against him based on indications that the FBI altered his 302s, essentially written reports based on witness interviews, to make him look guilty, and leaking information on Flynn’s calls to the Washington Post. As reported by RedState:
Powell alleges a set-up of Flynn including that the FBI 302s related to Flynn were edited. A 302 is the form the FBI uses to reflect what a witness says during an interview. Powell’s filing also suggests that Office of Net Assessment’s James Baker illegally leaked the transcripts of Flynn’s calls to David Ignatius of the Washington Post. And Powell is specifically looking for the phone records of James Clapper to see about his contacts with Ignatius, including that he essentially told Ignatius to “take the kill shot on Flynn.”
Powell, a former federal prosecutor and a veteran of 500 federal appeals, is the author of “LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice”, a biting tome exposing the prosecutorial misconduct of government lawyers such as Robert Mueller’s “pitbull” Andrew Weissmann and other members of Obama’s inner circle which have threatened the foundations of true justice in our democracy. Powell has sunk her legal teeth into the fraudulent case against Flynn that should result in his, with apologies to Robert Mueller, exoneration As noted by Powerline:
Powell’s most explosive charge is that the FBI falsified the Form 302 that recorded the content of its agents’ interview with Flynn in order to set him up for prosecution:
On February 10, 2017, the news broke—attributed to “senior intelligence officials”—that Mr. Flynn had discussed sanctions with Ambassador Kislyak, contrary to what Vice President Pence had said on television previously. Overnight, the most important substantive changes were made to the Flynn 302. Those changes added an unequivocal statement that “FLYNN stated he did not”—in response to whether Mr. Flynn had asked Kislyak to vote in a certain manner or slow down the UN vote. This is a deceptive manipulation because, as the notes of the agents show, Mr. Flynn was not even sure he had spoken to Russia/Kislyak on this issue. He had talked to dozens of countries. Exs. 9, 10, 11.
Second, they added: “or if KISLYAK described any Russian response to a request by FLYNN.” That question and answer do not appear in the notes, yet it was made into a criminal offense. The typed version of the highly unusual “deliberative” 302 by that date already included an entire section from whole cloth that also serves as a criminal charge in the Information and purported factual basis regarding “Russia’s response” to any request by Flynn. The draft also shows that the agents moved a sentence to make it seem to be an answer to a question it was not.
As Fox News legal analyst Greg Jarrett notes on his website, it is Clapper who may have ordered the hit job on Flynn, calling for a Washington Post reporter to “take the kill shot” on Flynn by publishing leaked information:
New court documents released Thursday night shed some light on some of the deep state’s actions in attacking former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn. If these actions were revealed to have been taken against anyone else that was not a Trump ally, the media would be screaming about the abuse of power and the corruption of dirty law enforcement officials.
These documents allege that President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, called Washington Post reporter David Ignatius to “take the kill shot on Flynn.” It is believed that ONA Director James Baker had leaked information, including transcripts from General Flynn’s calls, to Ignatius. Director Baker is believed to also have been the handler for Stefan Halper who may have been tasked by the FBI/CIA to slander General Flynn personally….
James Clapper admitted earlier in the month that President Obama ordered the intel community to collect and release as much information about “Russian interference” as possible. Could the command from President Obama have directly led to the leaking of transcripts from Director Baker as well as Clapper telling a reporter to “take the kill shot” on a political adversary?
Close scrutiny of the intelligence community’s actions by Durham and Barr should send chills up Clapper’s spine and that of former CIA Director John Brennan’s as well In the search for the answer as to how the whole Mueller collusion probe and spying on Team Trump originated, one does not have to look far. One need only to revisit another interview deep state conspirator and perjurer James Clapper gave with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. In that interview, Clapper points his finger directly at Barack Hussein Obama as leader of the coup against Donald Trump:
Former Obama administration director of national intelligence James Clapper admitted that former president Barack Obama gave the order to Peter Strzok to kick off his Operation Crossfire Hurricane targeting of President Donald Trump.
Obama — who also gave a stand-down order on stopping alleged Russian hacking — was personally implicated in the plot according to Peter Strzok and Lisa Page’s texts. Clapper confirms the obvious.
This is James Clapper’s interview with Anderson Cooper, which confirms that Obama ordered Strzok to carry out an Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA), which became the basis for the entire Mueller probe.
“If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place,” Clapper said in his Anderson Cooper interview.
Newly revealed text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggest that in addition to the FBI altering Michael Flynn’s 302s, deep state actors at the FBI were well aware of and in cahoots with the intelligence community of James Clapper and John Brennan and may shed light on what clapper meant by taking a “kill shot” on Flynn. Certainly GOP Sens. Charles Grassley are interested, according to Fox News:
Republican congressional leaders are calling for a new investigation of media leaks surrounding the Russia investigation — possibly emanating from the intelligence community — pointing to internal text messages they say indicate a more widespread problem.
“[T]hese texts and emails demonstrate the need to investigate leaks from agencies or entities other than FBI,” Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote to Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael K. Atkinson, pointedly asking whether he’s launched a probe “into these apparent leaks.”…
The specific messages include a December 2016 text, in which Strzok told Page, “Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking in to overdrive.” Fox News previously reported on that exchange.
In April 2017, Strzok also sent an email commenting on an article about the Trump campaign and Russia by saying, “I’m beginning to think the agency got info a lot earlier than we thought and hasn’t shared it completely with us. Might explain all these weird/seemingly incorrect leads all these media folks have. Would also highlight agency as source of some of the leaks.”
What did the CIA and FBI share exactly? Strzok, in another text, expressed the need for an “insurance policy” to either prevent Trump from being elected ot if he was then removed from office. This was quite a policy and quite a coup involving the FBI, the CIA, and quite possibly President Obama himself. Godspeed Durham and Barr and if justice still exists in America after this deep ste assault, Michael Flynn will be a free man and John Brenan and James Clapper will be cellmates.
In 1977 country singer Johnny Paycheck popularized a song entitled “Take this job and shove it.”
Take this job and shove it
I ain’t working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way
As I’m walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain’t working here no more

Yesterday Donald Trump likened the treatment being inflicted on him by the House Democrat Secret Police as a “lynching.”
It was met with much derision- “fury” even.
“That is one word that no president ought to apply to himself,” the South Carolina representative James Clyburn, the House majority whip, said on CNN. “I’m not just a politician … I’m a product of the south. I know the history of that word.”
The California representative Karen Bass, chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told CNN Trump’s “lynching” tweet was consistent with his pattern of throwing out “racial bombs” to give “red meat” to his base when his back is against the wall.
democrats immediately leaped to prove what a collection of hypocritical morons they are
In 1998 Jerry (the Hutt) Nadler accused Republicans of running a “lynch mob” against Bill Clinton
I am the president’s defender in the sense that I haven’t seen anything yet that would rise, in my opinion, to the level of impeachable offense. …
I wish we could get this over with quickly. … In pushing the process, in pushing the arguments of fairness and due process the Republicans so far have been running a lynch mob.
Then there was Greg Meeks
Democrats are being total hypocrites right now in response to @realDonaldTrump‘s tweet this morning.
Dem. Rep. Gregory Meeks on Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998: “What we are doing here is not a prosecution, it is a persecution and indeed it is a political lynching.”
And I can state unequivocally after watching Thursday’s Benghazi House committee hearing and considering the email transcripts, media statements, debates and intense partisan focus on the former secretary of state for the past few years that she has been treated unfairly. Unprofessionally. And frankly, disrespectfully.
I believe that like Justice Clarence Thomas before her, she has been publicly lynched in a way that we Americans only reserve for uppity black men and uppity professional women who don’t know their place. She has been dragged through the media and partisan mud of Capital Hill politics and asked to answer questions that she has already answered. She has been attacked. Accused. And berated by members of Congress who should know better.
How about Harry Reid and John Kerry?ALX @alx

Nadler in 1998 Accused GOPs of Running ‘Lynch Mob’ Against Clinton
Democrats are outraged about Trump comparing impeachment to lynching, but Nadler in 1998 accused Republicans of “running a lynch mob.”
Democratic Senator @JohnKerry:
“It’s a verbal political Lynching on the floor of the Senate”
Then-Sen. @JoeBiden on Clinton impeachment:
“…History is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching…” https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1186691273870233601 …Joe Biden
Impeachment is not “lynching,” it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1186611272231636992 …
Wikipedia describes “Lynching” this way
Lynching is a premeditated extrajudicial killing by a group. It is most often used to characterize informal public executions by a mob in order to punish an alleged transgressor, convicted transgressor, or to intimidate a group. It can also be an extreme form of informal group social control, and it is often conducted with the display of a public spectacle (often in the form of hanging) for maximum intimidation. Instances of lynchings and similar mob violence can be found in every society.
And there is this little tidbit
Tuskegee Institute records of lynchings between the years 1880 and 1951 show 3,437 African-American victims, as well as 1,293 white victims.
Take your lynching outrage and shove it
I ain’t puttin’ up with it no more
** The Change in Status Gives Investigators Ability to Subpoena Witnesses, Use Grand Jury
** NYT Reports that DOJ Durham probe has “shifted” from an administrative review of the Russia investigation “to a criminal inquiry.”
For more than two years, President Trump has repeatedly attacked the Russia investigation, portraying it as a hoax and illegal even months after the special counsel closed it. Now, Mr. Trump’s own Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation into how it all began.
Justice Department officials have shifted an administrative review of the Russia investigation closely overseen by Attorney General William P. Barr to a criminal inquiry, according to two people familiar with the matter. The move gives the prosecutor running it, John H. Durham, the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to impanel a grand jury and to file criminal charges.
…] The move also creates an unusual situation in which the Justice Department is conducting a criminal investigation into itself.
Mr. Barr’s reliance on Mr. Durham, a widely respected and veteran prosecutor who has investigated C.I.A. torture and broken up Mafia rings, could help insulate the attorney general from accusations that he is doing the president’s bidding and putting politics above justice.
It was not clear what potential crime Mr. Durham is investigating, nor when the criminal investigation was prompted. A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment.
[…] Federal investigators need only a “reasonable indication” that a crime has been committed to open an investigation, a much lower standard than the probable cause required to obtain search warrants. However, “there must be an objective, factual basis for initiating the investigation; a mere hunch is insufficient,” according to Justice Department guidelines.
Remember all of those Obama-era scandals? Those were real Constitutional violations of presidential authority – from Fast and Furious to IRS, Solyndra, etc., any could have been used to push a legitimate impeachment inquiry. When Republicans ruled the House they never did so. Be it lack of courage or not wanting to drag the country through such a mess, President Obama was allowed to continue his two terms largely without having to answer for rampant wrongdoing.
Now? House Democrats are literally waging an attempted coup behind closed doors and without opposition party input or oversight. This is unprecedented and should not be allowed – but it is, all because the entrenched powers of the D.C. status quo want so badly to see a truly independent president working hard for the American people, to be forced from the White House.
Speaker Pelosi and the lawless Democrats are running a historic scam on the American people.
For the first time in US history Democrat leaders are running a sham impeachment — that was NEVER voted on in the US House of Representatives — and they are holding the entire proceeding in a secret secluded room away from public viewing and away from cameras.
Democrats are so worried that they will not be able to control the narrative to their criminal operation that they now are refusing to allow Republican lawmakers to view the transcripts from the impeachment proceedings!
NOTE: Voters must be reminded that Senate Republicans could do some serious push back to what House Democrats are attempting here. Figures like Lindsey Graham could hold hearings to counter the illegal in-secret “hearings” being conducted by the Pelosi-led House.
Graham has not done so and that choice by him is a clear indicator he’s either too weak or too controlled by the D.C. elites to be doing the right thing. Instead he, and so many other Senate Republicans are sitting silent and shrugging at the attempted coup of a duly elected POTUS.
