On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” CNN National Security Analyst and former Director of National Intelligence Lt. Gen. James Clapper (Ret.) stated that “if there wasn’t active collusion proven, then I think what we have here is a case of passive collusion,” such as President Trump retweeting messages planted by Russia.
Clapper said, “I think, if there wasn’t active collusion proven, then I think what we have here is a case of passive collusion, where, in some cases, unwittingly — to include candidate Trump himself, who retweeted messages that had been planted by the Russians in social media, and so, that’s a small, but important example of how members of the campaign were used and manipulated by the Russians.”
