Clapper says democracy ‘under assault’ by Trump (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Monday, May 15, 2017, 01:57

WASHINGTON — American democracy is ‘‘under assault’’ on separate fronts from President Trump and Russia, former US intelligence chief James Clapper warned Sunday.

In a broadcast interview, Clapper expressed dismay over the abrupt firing of FBI director James Comey amid an investigation into Moscow’s meddling in US elections and possible ties with the Trump campaign.

As Trump works to fast-track Comey’s successor, lawmakers from both parties urged him to steer clear of any politicians for the job and say he must ‘‘clean up the mess that he mostly created.’’

‘‘I think, in many ways, our institutions are under assault, both externally — and that’s the big news here, is the Russian interference in our election system. I think as well our institutions are under assault internally,’’ Clapper said on CNN’s ‘‘State of the Union.’’
