Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn -- April 29, 2018 -- HR 3
James Clapper and "Finding #44." Did Deep State Clapper find a way to get himself paid for leaking to CNN? A new House Intel Report from Devin Nunes suggests the possibility, by revealing Clapper's "inconsistent testimony" to Congress regarding his leaking of the Steele Dossier to CNN. Yes -- prior to his becoming a paid CNN Contributor. Combine these revelations with Comey's descriptions of Clapper seeking a "news hook" for the Dossier, and it doesn't look good for the former Director of National Intelligence. Time to prosecute? Meanwhile, a volitile John Brennan threatens Trump again on Twitter, former CIA man Phil Mudd throws his pen across the CNN studios, and we conclude Strzok & Page weren't really having "an affair" after all. Former FBI man James Kallstrom says Comey has "lost his mind" and blasts the intelligence community's "cabal, a fifth column, a conspiracy" to overthrow the 2016 election. Also, with Korean leaders declaring an end to hostilities, Lindsey Graham nominates Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize, and the full-house crowd at Trump's Michigan Rally chants "Nobel! Nobel!" during the President's speech. Plus, we discuss bullying, cord-cutting, the fate of Amanda Carpenter's Blacklist and our update on the dwindling financial prospects of Never Trumpism, from the examples of Kevin Williamson and Michael Gerson. With Listener Calls & Music via Dwight Yoakam, K.D. Lang, Johnny Cash, Billy Joe Shaver and Julio Iglesias.
