Clapper: Firing of Comey, Whitaker’s Actions on Mueller Could Be ‘Slow Moving Saturday Night Massacre’

‘I’ve been concerned with the assault on our institution from the beginning’

EXCERPT:

CLAPPER: "I’ve been concerned about the assault on our institutions from the beginning, from the beginning of this Administration. Whether it’s the Department of Justice, certainly the firing of Jim Comey could be seen as part of a very slow motion Saturday Night Massacre. And depending on what Mr. Whitaker actually does in relation to the investigation, yes, it could be the continuation of such an event."
