Fmr. DNI James Clapper: Trump’s Russia Scandal Is Worse Than Watergate (VIDEO)

James Clapper was the Director of National Intelligence during the Obama Administration. He has been interviewed many times over the Trump Administration’s troubles with Russia and his latest statement is sure to make the Trump White House furious – that’s to say nothing of how Donald Trump himself will react when he gets wind of these comments.

During remarks he was making at Australia’s National Press Club, Clapper said of Trump’s scandal-ridden White House:

“I lived through Watergate. It was a scary time, I have to say though that I think, you know, compare the two, that Watergate pales in my view compared to what we’re confronting now.”

Apparently, Clapper continued to go all in on Trump, as Australian reporter Paul Karp tweeted out the contents of what Clapper was saying:

This is not the first time Clapper has openly spoken of Trump with contempt; in fact, he recently suggested to Jake Tapper, host of the CNN news shows The Lead and State of the Union, that Trump is a threat to the very fabric of the republic, saying:

“I think in many ways our institutions are under assault both externally—and that’s the big news here is the Russian interference in our election system—and I think as well our institutions are under assault internally.”

When Tapper pressed Clapper about what he meant about the institutional danger from the inside, Clapper said he meant Trump.

Of course, Clapper is correct. Donald Trump makes Richard Nixon look like a boy scout. There has never been such an assault on our Republic from within the very top levels of government, and certainly we’ve never had a president who was in the pocket of the Russians the way Trump is. No, this is far, far worse than Watergate, and that is why we must find a way to remove the entire Trump Administration from office as soon as possible.
