President Trump blasted former DIA Chief James Clapper for questioning his ‘fitness for office.’ President Trump accused Clapper of lying to Congress, and asked if the former intel boss would reveal the ‘beautiful letter’ he sent him.

Washington Examiner reports:

“James Clapper, who famously got caught lying to Congress, is now an authority on Donald Trump. Will he show you his beautiful letter to me?” Trump tweeted.

“The shot at Clapper comes amidst a barrage of tweets from the president Thursday, as he lashed out at Democrats, Speaker Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Trump was referring to a 2013 incident when Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asked Clapper if the National Security Agency collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper answered, “No, sir … not wittingly.”

Clapper has since said he misunderstood the question and misspoke, but Wyden’s office previously said he was given the opportunity to change his testimony following the hearing and he refused. Wyden has also said Clapper was provided the question in advance and knew it was coming.

On Wednesday, Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer ripped into James Clapper over the former DNI Chief’s interview he gave to CNN. Following President Trump’s powerhouse rally in Phoenix, Clapper told CNN he found the speech “extremely disturbing” and even suggested the Commander-in-Chief doesn’t have the “fitness” for office. Shaffer replied by calling Clapper an ‘idiot’ and a ‘political bot.’
