James Clapper admits FBI spied on Trump campaign

On  CNN Thursday night, Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper admitted that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

Clapper said there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign and he believed it was “a good thing.”

Clapper openly admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.”

Clapper then went on to say, “So, if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, that’s a good thing.”

James Clapper also stated he believes “it’s hugely dangerous if someone like that is exposed because the danger to that person” and the potential “reluctance of others to be informants for the FBI” could possibly devastate the FBI.

President Trump responded to the interview with Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper on Twitter:
