Clapper Slips Up: 'Clinton-Steele Dossier' Was Used For FISA Surveillance 'Extension'

When the intelligence community sends its people to CNN to lie to us, they're not sending their best.

They're sending people with a lot of problems, and they're unable to keep their lies straight.

From The Last Refuge:
Gotta love the professionally obtuse former DNI James Clapper.

As much as he is a stuttering doofus, and therein showcases his political value for the former administration; and to the extent that Clapper has previously stated there was no attempt by the DOJ/FBI to gain a FISA authorized approval for surveillance on any Trump campaign officials: "none that I'm aware of"; …it is always valuable to listen to Clapper because he has a tendency to, well, to let slip stuff that makes the black hats cringe.

Cue the audio visual "slippage."  Inside tonight's interview by Jake Tapper, former DNI James Clapper now unwittingly refutes his previous assertion of "no Trump FISA warrant", and simultaneously lets it slip out that the Clinton/Steele dossier was not used in gaining origination authority for FISA-702 surveillance, but rather for an "extension" of a previous application for FISA-702 surveillance. 


06:48 .."as I understand it, this was simply an extension of uh, the original, uh, FISA request.  Meaning that, or implying, that apparently, there was information that was considered, uh, 'valuable', that was being obtained, via the initial FISA request."

"FISA's have, uh, finite dates. Uh, in other words they have deadlines; they aren't indefinite… So when the time was up for the initial FISA report, FISA request, then it was time to get an extension. So on its face, I don't know that the dossier played, very much, in this at all"…
The intelligence community needs to call for a complete and total shutdown of their lying cronies going on TV until they can figure out what the hell is going on.
