CLAPPER: Possible Trump was recorded during wiretapping (Video)


James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, has finally admitted that it is “possible” President Trump may have been included in audio during the wiretapping of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager.

President Trump’s claim in March of this year that Trump Tower had been wiretapped by Obama brought ridicule and denial from the liberal media and Democrats.

Clapper himself claimed in March that he was not aware of any court order to wiretap Donald Trump or Trump Tower.

Suddenly, however, on Monday night, Sep. 18, CNN reported a shocking admission, stating that “US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election…The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.”

During an interview Wednesday on CNN, host Don Lemon asked Clapper about the FBI wiretap on Manafort instigated by the Obama administration, as part of a probe into suspected ties between Trump campaign associates and the Russians.

“The president’s allies say the fact that Manafort was wiretapped proves that the president was right to accuse the former president of wiretapping him, and you were wrong. What’s your response to that?” Lemon asked Clapper.

Clapper said he stands by his statement, and that he cannot comment on the media reporting, which is about a FISA warrant allegedly lodged against Manafort.

“Is it possible the president was picked up in a conversation with Paul Manafort?” Lemon pressed further.

“It’s certainly conceivable,” Clapper said.

“Is it likely?” Lemon asked.

“Uh, I can’t say,” Clapper hesitantly admitted. “I wouldn’t want to go there but I will say it’s possible.”

President Trump first opened the can of worms on the wiretapping claim when he tweeted out, “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
