Former spy chief James Clapper appeared on CNN with Don Lemon Wednesday to speak about the wiretapping of Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
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.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

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: “Uh, I can’t say. I – uh – wouldn’t wanna go there, but I will say, it’s possible.”
