NeverTrump, Bluecheckmark Mafia: James Clapper is a Saint That Never Lies! (MJ)

Dude is the Michelangelo of bullshit. I have no idea why anyone believes anything he says. Oh, right. Eggs/omelets. Gotta find some way to make Drumpf look bad!

Let me catch you up if you haven't been paying attention this weekend:

1. Flynn is charged with lying to the FBI about speaking to the Russian ambassador.

2. ABC reporter Brian Ross claims that the meetings were during the campaign, directed by Trump.

3. Media firestorm! Twitter Bluechecks/NeverTrumpers engage!

4. Oops. Brian Ross was wrong. The meetings were after Donny Two Scoops smoked Stumbles McPantsuit on Nov 8th, so... during the transition.

5. The Trump White House claims they had permission to talk to foreign governments during the transition--and that this is all boringly normal.

6. Bluechecks and NeverTrumpers try to Trumpsplain how this is all totes terrible anyway--citing James Fucking Clapper's opinion. See linked article from Hot Air above.

So here we are looking for evidence that the Obama administration actually gave the incoming Trump folks the ok to start some diplomatic boringly average foreign policy outreach.


Is there a memo? NeverTrumper Ed Morrissey at the link needs proof cuz Clapper is a totally legit source. A saint among sinners.

Forget a memo. You know what would really do it for me? Obama's Deputy Spokesperson for the State Department, Mark C. Toner, answering this exact question 11 months ago. You know, during the transition.

QUESTION: -- reports starting yesterday, but then more of them this morning, about contact between the incoming national security advisor and the Russian ambassador. I'm just wondering, from the State Department's point of view, is this something that's of concern at all? Or --I'll just leave it there and then follow up.

MR TONER: Again, not necessarily -- I've seen the reports. I don't think they've been confirmed or corroborated yet. But that's - as he's part of the transition team, that's really for them to speak to in how they are engaging. I mean -

QUESTION: Right, but --

MR TONER: -- the president-elect is also engaged on his own with many world leaders.

QUESTION: Right.

MR TONER: So I don't want to speculate and I don't want to --

QUESTION: So there's nothing - this building doesn't see anything necessarily inappropriate about contact between members of the incoming administration and foreign officials --

MR TONER: No.

QUESTION: -- no matter what country they're from?

MR TONER: No.

QUESTION: Right?

MR TONER: No. And again, this has been ongoing. I mean, we stand ready if they want to work through the State Department to contact some of these individuals, but we have no comment or no problem with them doing such on their own.

QUESTION: Okay. Thank you.

Skip to 28:25 to see it come out of this guy's squeakhole for yourself. Or if the video actually starts at the right time, hey, I meant to do that all along.

The Bluecheckmarks...the NeverTrumpers...they just want to fulfill their deepest desires; facts be damned. You really can't blame Brian Ross or James Clapper--they're just the tip of a flaccid spear. The Bluechecks and NTers are the flaccid shaft.
