Disgraced former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper who on Wednesday compared the fake Russia-Trump hysteria to the Nixon-era Watergate scandal criminally lied to Congress in 2013 by suggesting the NSA doesn’t “wittingly” collect telephone records of millions of Americans, according to videotaped testimony Clapper gave to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Speaking to the National Press Club of Australia on Wednesday, Clapper said, “I have to say though that I think when you compare the two [Nixon and Trump administrations], Watergate pales, really, in my view, compared to what we’re confronting now.”
Perjurer James Clapper said that President Donald J. Trump‘s “sharing sensitive intelligence with the Russians and compromising its [Israeli] source, reflect either ignorance or disrespect and either is very problematic”—further denouncing the president for firing “distinguished public servant” James Comey, who has spent 15 years shilling for Hillary Clinton.
Russia and the United States face a common enemy in the form of ISIS, about which President Trump shared information with Russian officials.

At a March 12, 2013 hearing of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Clapper lied under oath to Oregon Senator Ron Wyden when Clapper said the National Security Agency doesn’t collect and store the nature of telephone calls of millions of American citizens. Reporting based on June 2013 leaks from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed that, the following month April, the NSA began sifting millions of cellphone records from Verizon.
How can anyone take Clapper seriously?
Here’s the exchange between Wyden and Clapper then:
Wyden: “I hope we can do this in just a yes or no answer, because I know Sen. Feinstein wants to move on. Last summer, the NSA director [Keith Alexander] was at a conference and he was asked a question about the NSA surveillance of Americans. He replied—and I quote here—“The story that we have millions, or hundreds of millions, of dossiers on people is completely false.” The reason I’m asking the question is, having served on the committee now for a dozen years, I don’t really know what a dossier is in this context. So, what I wanted to see if you could give me a yes or no answer to the question: Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions, or hundreds of millions of Americans?”
Clapper: “No, sir.”
Wyden: “It does not?”
Clapper: “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect, but not wittingly.”
