Brit Hume eviscerates James Clapper’s most recent claim that Russia successfully swung the election toward Donald Trump:
Clapper claims in his new book that “…Of course, the Russian effort affected the outcome. Surprising even themselves, they swung the election to a Trump win. To conclude otherwise stretches logic, common sense, and credulity to the breaking point.”
Hume says he “worries about a man who was once considered a serious intelligence analyst reaching that conclusion”. He goes on to point out that all of the deep analyses of the 2016 election reveal that while Russia tried to influence the election, there were too many other big factors at play that had far more influence than Russia’s attempts.
Furthermore, Hume says Clapper presents no evidence and that it’s just not plausible to come to this conclusion, as it’s impossible to know what’s in the minds of voters when they cast their ballots.
Hume calls Clapper’s conclusion “disturbingly silly” and also disputes Clapper’s characterization on The View that he didn’t lied to Congress, that he was simply mistakenly thinking about something else.
