The former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper raised eyebrows throughout Washington Thursday night; bizarrely calling allegations the FBI “spied” on the Trump campaign a “good thing” for the country.

Clapper was speaking with CNN’s Don Lemon when he was asked to weigh-in on recent revelations the bureau may have had an “inside man” interacting with the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.

Clapper – Spying On Trump "Was Good Thing"

“If there was someone that was observing that sort of thing,” said Clapper, “That’s a good thing because the Russians pose a threat to the very basis of our political system.”

The President slammed the possibility of an “inside man” earlier this week, saying -if true- it would be a bigger political scandal than Watergate.
