Speaking on NBC News this morning, the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who served in that post during the Obama administration, flatly denied that there was a wiretap authorized against Donald Trump or his campaign during his tenure.
“There was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president elect at the time as a candidate or against his campaign,” Clapper said on “Meet the Press.”
He added that he would “absolutely” have been informed if the FBI had sought or received such a warrant to wiretap Trump or his campaign.
“I can deny it,” Clapper continued.
