Director of National Intelligence James Clapper delivered some reassurance Thursday to Americans worried about the Trump transition — along with his resignation.
“I know many people have been feeling indeterminate about what will happen with this Presidential move,” Clapper said “There has been a great deal of catastrophizing, if I can use that term, in the 24-hour news cycle and social media. So, I’m here with a message: It will be alright.”.”
Clapper, a retired Air Force general UN agency who led two of the nation’s intelligence agencies before being appointed by Brack Obama, has seen his tenure troubled by contention over the nation’s spying techniques—including former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s leaks revealing high-tech police investigation programs, the killing of innocent civilians and U.S.A. voters by armed drones overseas, and therefore the continued disclosures round the CIA’s torture and rendition programs once 9/11.
The exit of Clapper, who submitted his resignation Wednesday evening, is not a astonish.
