Clapper: No Question Russia Tried To Sway Election

(SL) – Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper believes “there are other shoes to drop” following the indictment of more than a dozen Russians for meddling in the 2016 election.

Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Clapper said information could come out later about the direct involvement of the Russian government, or the financial entanglements between Russia and the Trump organization. He said those are issues the special counsel on the Russia investigation could be looking at.

Clapper said there’s no question the Russians were trying to sway the election and that they were trying to sow discord and discontent in the country, as well as hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign and support the Trump campaign. He added that President Trump has failed to speak on what needs to be done to address the Russia threat.
