Former Director of National Intelligence Says He Worries About Trump’s ‘Access to Nuclear Codes’

Written by  Terence P. Jeffrey

(CNSNews.com) - Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on CNN last night that he questions President Donald Trump’s fitness for office and worries about his “access to nuclear codes.”

Clapper also questioned Trump’s supporters in the general population of the country.

“Having some understanding of the levers that a president can exercise, I worry about, frankly, you know, the access to nuclear codes,” Clapper said of Trump. “In a fit of pique, he decides to do something about Kim Jong-un, there's actually very little to stop him.

“The whole system is built to ensure a rapid response if necessary,” said Clapper. “So there are very little in the way of controls over, you know, exercising a nuclear option, which is pretty damn scary.”

Clapper said he wonders about the sort of people who would attend a Trump rally and show “adulation” for the man.

“I do wonder as well about the people that attracted to this rally as others,” said Clapper. “You know, what are they thinking?

“Or, why am I so far out, off base?” said Clapper. “Because I don't understand the adulation and, of course, that's why I think he gravitated to having this rally, as ill-timed as it is.

Why would you listen to Clapper who was caught lying to Congress twice!!

Real Americans were worried when this moron, clapper, was in the administration of obama and his gang of incompetents as they worked hard to destroy America. And that now those morons continue to shoot off their mouths now that America has a real President,and hard to believe that anyone listens to them.

Crapper was not afraid of Obozo having the codes and that MORON thought he was better than GOD. What he should be worried about is Hitlery or some other loony in his party getting back in office. Just look at Calipornia and see what another IGNORANT LIBERAL in DC will get us.

If Clinton would have been elected, you can be sure she would have sold the codes to enlarge their bank roll through the Clinton Foundation. Proof: she sold uranium used in the development of nuclear devices which could kill you any day and the codes will probably never be used.

I worry about a "former" director of Intelligence that can't remain so. Its been shown that the Intelligence service, during James Clapper's tenure was severely lacking, as evidenced by the international turmoil created by his lack of direction. Perhaps he should just be quiet, sit back in his rocking chair, and enjoy the fact that he has not been charged with incompetence, negligence, or more serious character flaws.

I am worried that Barry the Fairy Obama gave the launch codes to Hillary and she sold them to the highest bidder !

I would worry if YOU had access to the nuclear codes. It is reasonable to assume that nothing would be done until the military spoke and validated that it was necessary.

One wonders WHO, in the White Supremacy House, has been detailed to put the cuffs on Trump, when he tries to start a nuclear war?

Well, LeeRoy, it just SEEMS stupid, based on your lack of education, inadequate vocabulary, inability to reason abstractly, and inherently low IQ. Have a nice day, Brad.

Davis is the little brown turd in Hitlary's depends!! His opinions are just as useful!!

So says Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper who, on multiple occasions, has lied to both Congress and to the American people. The imam at my local mosque is probably more truthful and trustworthy. Well, maybe, maybe not...

If the "imam" is not engaged in the destruction of the USA, he is less harmful than comrade Clapper.

This man has committed perjury before congress on 2 occasions. He is not believable. If anyone needs a mental evaluation it's him. He s/b charged with perjury and have his security clearance revoked. He is a scumbag. He is a poster boy for what is wrong with all our general officers.

WHAT WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT IS WHY MR. CLAPPER IS NOT IN JAIL FOR LYING TO CONGRESS, WHY IS HILLARY NOT IN JAIL FOR ALL OF HER CRIMS, WHY IS THE CLINTON FOUNDATION NOT BEING INVESTIGATED. WHY IS OBAMA NOT TRIED FOR THE LAWS HE BROKE, WHY IS MR. HOLDER NOT TRIED FOR BREAKING FEDERAL LAW IN FAST AND FURIOUS,
IT IS MORE THAN PAST TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP . THE LAW OF THE LAND SHOULD APPLY TO EVERY ONE, AFTER ALL THIS COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED AND BASED ONTHE POINT OF LAW.

Yes.
When comrades Clapper and Brennen make statements about president Trump, we read what the CIA plans for president Trump and supporters.
One may logically conclude that Clapper, Brennen and a few hundred others are stooges/pimps for the owners of the MSM.
Owners of the MSM control 96% of all western world media, and sponsor the defamation campaign against president Trump.

MSM won't let me comment. They can't handle the truth.

Well I can see by all the posts that I won't have to repeat that Clapper is a known liar...hence he has no credibility to anything else said now or in the future...he is also a known anti-Trumper in the deep state...of course the lefty's will glob on to him as if he is their new mesiah on being the go to guy about Trump....

Clapper is a total putz and political hack. How much did Soros pay him to say this? Ask him the right questions.

No one should be surprised that this obama's bastard goes against current NORMAL and HONEST President. The same pertains to all obama's intelligence and security heads. The war against our President continues. What is much worth - civil war left to us by former "president" became absolutely opened.

TURNS OUT, CLAPPER WAS A HIDEOUS LIAR IN THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY. Remember folks he lied under oath before a Senate hearing and had to recant his testimony revealing that tens of millions of Americans are being spied on by the NSA...GOTCHA YOU ASSHOLE! So now we are suppose to hang on every word that falls from his lying lips? HEY CLAPPER, STOP PISSING ON OUR LEG AND CONVINCING US ITS RAINING! RETIRE WITH SOME DIGNITY AND CRAWL BACK UNDER YOUR FUCKING ROCK!

What do you expect from Clapper who was caught LYING to Congress about NSA spying on the American people? Who clearly showed his political bias as Obama's DNI director and who is suppose to be apolitical. Clapper and Brennan are not to be trusted and have been part of the "Deep State" under Obama and are probably still pulling strings in the intelligence community that needs to be purged.

It's duds like Clapper who was fired to be interviewed by the COMMUNIST NEWS NETWORK. How he ever became the director is puzzling to say the least.

The key to the puzzle was revealed by former USAF colonel, L. Fletcher Prouty in 1973, with the 1st edition of, "The Secret Team, the CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World". The 2011 reprint contains the same information.

according to a Bill signed in 1871 Washington D.C. was incorporated by the New World Order Elites.

Clapper obviously do not like people who are Biblical Believers or opposed being governed by a NWO backed shadow government.

Frankly, I have been concerned that Despicable Donald will ratchet up his bully tactics to include dropping a nuke on some world leader who doesn't sing his praises. It seems to be his terrible temperament, and his huge -- and hugely egg-shell-fragile ego. But, Clapper was an Obama apologist and liar in Congressional testimony, which proves his lack of neutrality. As to the people who adore Despicable Donald, they are no more off-center than those others who still believe that Barack Obama was a great President.
