Ex-CIA Official: Trump's Wiretapping Claims 'Circus Clown Remarks'

Former CIA counterterrorism official Philip Mudd lashed out at President Donald Trump as "delusional," calling his accusations of wiretapping against former President Barack Obama "circus clown remarks."

In an interview Monday night on CNN's "The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer," Mudd, who is a CNN counterterrorism commentator, said there were "mixed views from my friends across government."

"Most of the people I speak with are transitioning from seeing this as the president of the United States to seeing this man as a circus clown," he said.

"He's either alleging that the FBI conspired with another branch of government, the judiciary . . . in a huge conspiracy to wiretap the opposite party. That's crazy," he said.

"If that's not correct, he's alleging that the former president conducted a felonious violation of federal law that exceeds anything we saw in Watergate."

He added: "The conversation has to transition to what we understand what the president of the United States says, to understanding these are circus clown remarks."

Mudd went on to accuse Trump of launching "a smokescreen because he's afraid to talk about Russian interference in the election process — and the smokescreen is a lie that says there is a massive conspiracy involving the judiciary, the FISA court, the Department of Justice, and the FBI."

"The man is delusional," he charged, "and the conversation has to transition from how to we explain what the Commander-in-Chief is doing to how do we understand the acts of a man who doesn't understand the difference bdtween protecting his brand and protecting the country. I've never seen anything like this."
