Newly declassified evidence undercuts former DNI Clapper’s testimony to Congress
From Just the News:
Newly declassified evidence undermines James Clapper’s testimony to Congress, raising questions about whether the former Director of National Intelligence misled lawmakers about briefing former President Obama on former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s telephone conversations with a Russian diplomat.
FBI records released late last week show that senior Justice Department officials were surprised to find in early January, 2017 that Obama already knew details of Flynn’s Dec. 29, 2016 phone call with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak before they had briefed the president.
Senior Republicans want to know what Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, knew about the call and how they knew it.
