(Tea Party PAC) – You know things are getting bad for the deep state when James Clapper has to go on CNN to beg the mainstream media to get back on point!
On Tuesday, the former Director of National Intelligence under Obama, James Clapper, declared that we are “losing sight” of the original intent of the Russia investigation.
You know, because we’re too busy looking into the likely crimes that occurred in order to get the investigation going in the first place.
During an appearance on CNN’s “New Day,” host John Berman asked clapper about reports that Attorney General William Barr had appointed a US attorney to look into the origins of the Russia probe and determine if surveillance targeting the Trump campaign were “lawful and appropriate.”
Nevermind all that, said Clapper.
The point here is…RUSSIA!
Clapper went on to say “we’re kind of losing sight” of the fact that the investigation was caused by Russia’s interfere with American political institutions and their attempts to engage with President Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign. Clapper said that the focus at the time was in figuring out what the Russians were doing, but now, “the message I almost take away from this is, ‘well, we should have ignored that.’”
“That was a profound threat — and still is — to our electoral system,” Clapper also said. “I wish people would pay more attention to volume I of the Mueller report, the exhaustive detail about what the Russians did. And we’re losing sight of that.”
When asked about the legitimacy of the investigation into the investigators, Clapper replied:
“You’re gonna have to stand in line and take a number to do an investigation of the investigators,” he responded when asked if such a probe is “warranted.”
“There’s already one substantial investigation, which, as I understand, is nearing completion, being conducted by the Department of Justice Inspector General,” Clapper continued. “I’d wait for the outcome of that to determine if there need to be more investigations.”
Last month, Clapper slammed Attorney General Bill Barr for saying he believed that “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign.
“You have to wonder about that,” says former CIA chief James Clapper on whether or not AG Barr opened a probe into the origins of the Mueller Report for political reasons. “This obviously complies with a long-standing request of Pres. Trump that the investigators be investigated”

According to the former Assistant Attorney General, John Yoo, the Democrats should be very worried about these new investigations, and that includes Clapper.
He showed his hand in this segment: the Dems are desperate for us to keep focusing on Russia so we’ll ignore the blatant abuses of our system that led to the Russia investigation in the first place.
