Clapper sure sounded back then like he was talking ‘categorically’.
Does he have anything he’d like to say now?
Mr James Clapper didn’t seem to mind being the center of attention back in March, when everyone was buzzing about whether Trump (or any of his team) were — or were NOT being surveilled by his own government.
You all remember when he said THIS, categorically, don’t you?

Well guess what?
TODD: Yeah, I was just going to say, if the F.B.I., for instance, had a FISA court order of some sort for a surveillance, would that be information you would know or not know?
TODD: You would be told this?
CLAPPER: I would know that.
TODD: If there was a FISA court order–
TODD: –on something like this.
CLAPPER: Something like this, absolutely.
TODD: And at this point, you can’t confirm or deny whether that exists?
CLAPPER: I can deny it. —YoungConservatives
Would he now say that he ‘misremembered’ that detail?
One might be tempted to say the Obama official was working from a base of ‘alternative facts’.
Combine that with the lingering questions about unmasking, and you’ve got serious unanswered questions that we would like to see Obama’s administration answer for… to add to all the others.
