DNI Clapper Statement on Conversation with President-elect Trump

This evening, I had the opportunity to speak with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss recent media reports about our briefing last Friday. I expressed my profound dismay at the leaks that have been appearing in the press, and we both agreed that they are extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security.

We also discussed the private security company document, which was widely circulated in recent months among the media, members of Congress and Congressional staff even before the IC became aware of it. I emphasized that this document is not a U.S. Intelligence Community product and that I do not believe the leaks came from within the IC. The IC has not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable, and we did not rely upon it in any way for our conclusions. However, part of our obligation is to ensure that policymakers are provided with the fullest possible picture of any matters that might affect national security.

President-elect Trump again affirmed his appreciation for all the men and women serving in the Intelligence Community, and I assured him that the IC stands ready to serve his Administration and the American people.

James R. Clapper, Director of National Intelligence

Love how he went after Buzzfeed and CNN for reporting fake news that was generated on 4Chan. Geez, these reporters do less checking for authenticity than I did on many of my middle school papers, absolutely shameful.

Well with an era with plenty of alternative news media (for both Liberals and Conservatives) on platforms like Youtube, maybe more stuff like this will help accelerate the death of the media dinosaurs.

No one said they were from US Intelligence and that statement doesn't make any claim on the material. How do you keep posting shit without even reading it? Your own bloody post even says where it came from.

The source was even identified by the WSJ and it wasn't 4chan.

What's your point? It's been known since yesterday it came from an ex-UK intelligence officer who now works for a private security firm. Real or not, we've known for a while it isn't from US Intelligence OR 4chan.

I know him personally. He's the Russian hacker known as 4chan.

Yeah ok. SImple facts buddy, sorry you don't like them. Maybe Alex Jones will make another idiotic video about it for you to post.

Runec, rawratl, everyone else...

If you stop eating the bait, the troll will go away. Seriously. If you stop posting on his threads they will just die and go away. It isn't hard...

XXanthar is a troll. Ruji on the other hand seems genuinely and hopelessly confused. But unwilling to let that stop him trying to share with the rest of the class. >.>

I count gross misinformation or misdirection w/ sharing often trolling. I have no doubt he believes in what he says... But not many people on this board really care about what he says. Some others often join in after you and a few others post... But for the most part no one really responds to the OP.

I really just want to old fun boards back and would love to see this stuff just die off. If the bait stops being eaten, the threads will die and the fun threads that pop up may actually live a bit longer in the spot light. Just a wish though...

I'm not familiar with the old "fun" board. It was never great though it has gotten considerably worse over the last year.

I assume you mean from before the long discussion forum was folded into General?

Ai, I have been a lurker at CR long before most people. Made a profile later when it was less... Sketchy and I had money to spare. The boards used to be a lot more fun, games, jokes, small talk, random bullshittery and what not. Was really fun.

Now its just depressing...

Ya'll talk about ignoring trolls and I'm already doing that. Well unless it's a lulzy troll.

Because some people have been implying it was leaked from internal memos/investigations inside of our own agencies. This makes it pretty clear where it was from some 3rd party company with no facts on who it came from. Lots of rumors though. At this point it could as easily be 4chan as anyone else as we don't have proof either way.

It also states it has not been verified if it is reliable and they knew it was circulating for months meaning our massive intelligence community has no real proof of its validity. You know they were investigating it, as is their job, but they have found nothing worth noting.

I was going to start making more shitposts and posts where I don't actually have to spend time on then this nonsense popped up =/. I'd like to see more shitposts as well and less stuff I have to pay attention to. Having an inbox full of notifications is a pain. I literally gave up trying to keep up with it because about 70% of my posts are on mobile and notifications are so horrible on mobile.

- What hairstyle do you have
- Whats your 2nd uncles hair color
- Whats the color of your cats eyes


~_~ Literally a bunch of people posting stuff that no one else reads then moving to the next topic to post another thing no one reads.

All it needs is a "Which Disney Prince Should Be Your Side D?" article and you could call them the BuzzFeed forums. In case you're wondering, this is an actual article on their website.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/christianzamora/which-disney-prince-should-be-your-side-dick?utm_term=.efQk4laNy#.rp2x703rJ

Oddly enough, that's where I first read this story. The tag line was "unverified sources" and in that moment, any semblance of credibility that BuzzFeed had vanished. What amuses me is that, after the credibility of this article has been questioned, they're still running with it, and referring to it as "the secret Russian Dossier".
