Ex-DNI James Clapper: I Expect ‘Other Shoes To Drop’ In Russia Probe

James Clapper believes the Trump Organization's financial entanglements could be revealed to the American public.

According to Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the shoes are not finished dropping in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Clapper, who served under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, says it is unlikely that Americans are fully aware of the degree to which the Russian government inserted itself into the U.S. election process.

Clapper said Friday's indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three foreign entities, which includes charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States and aggravated identity theft, served to validate findings by the intelligence community on Russian election interference.

"I do think there are other shoes to drop here besides this indictment," Clapper told Dana Bash on CNN's "State of the Union."

Clapper pointed to the complex financial dealings of the president's Trump Organization as well as evidence of more direct involvement by the Russian government as two possible avenues yet to be revealed by the Mueller investigation.

"Never before have we seen an effort like this mounted by the Russians with the multidimensional nature of it and its aggressiveness and directness," he said.
