“This evening, I had the opportunity to speak with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss recent media reports about our briefing last Friday,” Mr Clapper said. “I expressed my profound dismay at the leaks that have been appearing in the press, and we both agreed that they are extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security.”
Earlier this morning my Google Trump search picked up this article with URL terms,independent.co” of the U.K.. Strangely it disappeared about an hour later. So I searched “Clapper” and got it again. Stranger still Republican John McCain brought the dossier to light that Clapper says damages “our[U.S.A’s] national security”.
The dossier linking Trump to Russian influence seems to have originated with Britain’s The Guardian championing its source of the incriminating dossier as a retired British spy just as the words of Clapper the retiring CIA chief are published by another British media group.
Despite Mr. Clapper’s concerns about the dossier in the United States, the British keep telling Americans that the Guardian and its source are more factual than are former CIA head Mr.Clapper’s perception that the dossier story did not come from the CIA and that it threatened American national security, at 1:20 pm. the Guardian view is still at the top of Trump search results. To get the Clapper article also sponsered by a British media group you need to put Clapper and not Trump into the Google search box.
Here’s the most recent(3:00pm.Jan.12,2016) Guardian of Britain’s warning about the Trump-Putin Dossier that arrives at the top of Google Trump search results with nothing about the United States Clapper article that appeared momentarily in a Trump search early this morning.
