Obama loyalist James Clapper has read the Mueller report and claims it’s “devastating” for President Trump and proves “passive collusion.”
Daily Caller reported that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he believes the Mueller report demonstrates “passive collusion” from President Donald Trump if not “active collusion.”
Clapper suggested Thursday that candidate Trump was perhaps “unwittingly” advancing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, in a CNN interview reported by Fox News.
“If there wasn’t active collusion proven, then I think what we have here is a case of passive collusion where in some cases, unwittingly, to include candidate Trump himself, who retweeted messages that had been planted by the Russians in social media,” the CNN national security analyst said in an interview with Anderson Cooper. “That’s a small, but important, example of how members of the campaign were used and manipulated by the Russians.”
Clapper reiterated his position that the inquiry by the special counsel was entirely necessary because there was “good reason” for the intelligence community “to be concerned about whether or not there was some kind of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”
