Watch some fake news from a swamp creature who should be in jail:
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper referred to President Donald Trump on Monday as an intelligence “asset” for Russian President Vladimir Putin. The term “asset” refers to people with countries or organizations being spied upon who serve as resources for outside spies.
Clapper appeared on CNN to discuss Trump’s national security strategy speech given Monday, where he referred to Russia as a rival but also said he wanted to form a partnership.
The two leaders have also expressed recent gratitude to each other, with Putin calling and thanking Trump for sharing intelligence that helped foil a terror plot and Trump thanking Putin for his recent praise of the American economy.

The Obama administration intentionally derailed investigations into the terrorist group Hezbollah’s drug trafficking operation to secure the Iran nuclear deal, according to a new bombshell report.
Politico spoke with several members of Project Cassandra, a joint effort between the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Pentagon that was founded in 2008 under the Bush administration to identify and prosecute a drug trafficking, money laundering, and smuggling operation run by the Iranian-backed militants.
Over the next eight years, agents working out of a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, used wiretaps, undercover operations, and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks, with the help of 30 U.S. and foreign security agencies.

They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.
