James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, has accused Donald Trump of placing American democratic institutions ‘under assault’ following the sacking of James Comey – and cautioned that the former FBI director’s removal is “another victory” for Russia,” The Guardian reports.

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