Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper Says Watergate 'Pales' In Comparison With Trump Russia Scandal

Reuters: Watergate 'pales' compared with Trump-Russia: former U.S. intelligence head

The Watergate scandal pales in comparison to events in Washington surrounding U.S. President Donald Trump and alleged links between his campaign and Russia, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on Wednesday.

Clapper questioned Trump's continued pro-Russian stance, saying his sharing of intelligence with Russia "reflect either ignorance or disrespect, and either is very problematic".

"I think if you compare the two that Watergate pales, really, in my view, compared to what we're confronting now," Clapper told reporters in Canberra, Australia's capital.

WNU Editor: Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper provides no evidence .... he just throws out the allegation. And the result .... the media just cannot contain themselves .... they are now all excited and are waiting for the next person (maybe James Comey tomorrow) to prove this allegation. My prediction .... the media/never Trumpers/progressives/Democrats .... they are all going to be disappointed tomorrow.

Mentally distubed guy if he really believes it otherwise a sincere liar with psychopathic tendencies. Either is very problematic to use his own words.

James Clapper is a documented liar, including under oath.

No, Clapper. The criminal/political bomb(s) you speak of are the imminent revelations of Obama's felonious misuse of US surveillance apparati.

/it'll make Nixon look innocent.

Clapper should be in Pelican Bay.

On the other hand, Clapper may have just given a summary of his testimony to the special prosecutor that will be under oath. Remember, if Clapper goes under oath and he lies he is toast. So, don't hang him on the cross just yet.

BTW...Clapper and all these senior intel guys have dirt on everybody. So, I would not mess with them if I were the politicians. However, the special prosecutor has no vested interest in protecting anybody.

Just like in the movies, these guys have dirt on folks that could do them harm. Last I looked Trump is out to get anybody he does not like. Therefore, watch for the dirt dump with evidence during the witness testimony under oath.

Clapper looks like 'NSA official Thomas Bryan Reynolds' from the movie "Enemy of the State".

He looks like him nit physically but his general sliminess and character.

Whatever he is, he has official deep dirt on all these guys who would try to diss him. He is a very dangerous man. Not only does he know things, he knows where the paperwork or recordings are held.

Could you think of a more dangerous person to folks who play with the law in a fast and loose manner?
