Clapper: Trumo's tweet an assault on the DOJFormer Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Monday that President Trump’s call for the Department of Justice to investigate whether or not the FBI conducted surveillance on his campaign was a "disturbing assault" on DoJ's independence.

Clapper, an appointee of President Obama's, argued Trump was effectively trying to make Justice an arm of the White House.

“I think that’s actually a very disturbing assault on the independence of the Department of Justice,” Clapper told CNN’s “New Day.”
