Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday night, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin torched the mainstream media’s disinterest in questions surrounding former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s denial that the administration sought FISA court warrants to surveil the Donald Trump campaign for president.
“It’s only conservatives who are concerned about what they’re reading in liberal media outlets,” Levin said, noting that not one “mainstream” journalist is asking why Clapper is denying previous reporting.
“If Clapper says there was no FISA order — and he was very broad and he was very definite, and he said ‘no, I don’t remember this’ — then what the hell are we talking about!?” Levin exclaimed.
“That means they didn’t have enough information for probable cause to get a warrant in front of the FISA court,” he added.
“The question is why aren’t CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and all the rest of them, why aren’t they concerned about this?”
Levin told host Sean Hannity that going forward, two things need to happen:
First, the FISA court applications needs to be released, and the warrant that was secured in October must be available for public examination.
Secondly, Congress needs to review President Obama’s daily intelligence briefings. What did President Obama know? And when did he know it?
Everything James Clapper said “contradicts every piece of significant reporting over the last six months,” Levin explained. So why are conservatives alone in asking questions?
