“Why all the cloak-and-dagger secrecy” on Russia, Fmr. Director of National Intelligence

“Why all the cloak-and-dagger secrecy” on Russia, Fmr. Director of National Intelligence

Why is the Trump White House so defensive, so secretive, and so prone to “Cloak-and-dagger” secrecy regarding Russia? 

This is a question that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper proposed in an interview with PBS and CNN in the video clips below. 

Clapper, who advised and served President Obama for years, is a senior national authority figure on U.S. intelligence. Trump also relentlessly, and rather shamelessly, clung to a fake news false narrative for months that Clapper believed there was no evidence of “collusion”. 

Last week Clapper testified that there was “overwhelming” and “absolute” evidence of Russian meddling in the U.S. election.  

Clapper raises several legitimate questions in clips below, not only regarding the unusually suspicious secrecy of White House dealings with Russia, but more importantly regarding the “intent” and “content” of the discussions, particularly Kushner’s now infamous Russian ‘backchannel’.
