Former Spy Chief James Clapper on CNN: ‘It’s Possible’ President Trump’s Voice Recorded in Paul Manafort Wiretap (Video)

Obama’s FBI wiretapped the phone of President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, during and after the 2016 presidential campaign, CNN reported on Monday.

Sources familiar with the matter told CNN that the FBI obtained a secret court order under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 2014. The warrant allegedly focused on his work consulting for the government of Ukraine, The Hill reported.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper appeared on CNN with Don Lemon Wednesday to talk about Manafort’s wiretapping.

The video begins with Lemon asking Clapper about the stories floating around in the press, Clapper then reiterates what he has said prior about the incident and says he “cannot comment” on the FISA warrant, the GP reported.

Clapper consistently states that he “stands on” what he said on March 5, 2017 – watch the video below:

Lemon then asks Clapper, “Is it possible the President was picked up in a conversation with Paul Manafort?”

Clapper replies: “It’s certainly conceivable . . .”

Lemon: “Is it likely?”

Clapper responds: “I can’t say. I wouldn’t wanna go there, but I will say, it’s possible.”
