James Clapper Admits Obama Ordered Intelligence Community to Spy on Trump

During the 2016 election, Democrats and Hillary Clinton used a foreign government to compile a bogus dossier on Donald Trump. This misinformation was then used by the FBI and the intelligence community to spy on Trump and all of this was the basis for the “Russian collusion” witch-hunt. Until now Obama has claimed innocence, but his former Director of National Intelligence just admitted the former president ordered the intelligence community to spy on Trump and attempt to delegitimize his presidency.
James Clapper was Obama’s DNI from 2010-2017. His previous biggest claim to fame was spying on the American people and lying to Congress about it, but now he is famous for outing Obama’s treachery.
During an interview on CNN, Clapper was asked if he is worried about Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the fake Trump/Russia collusion narrative.
“Are you concerned that Barr’s…investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials?” asked the host.
“Well. I don’t know. I don’t think there was any wrongdoing,” replied Clapper.
That’s not exactly a confident answer, but it would get much worse:
“The then Commander-In-Chief, President Obama, told us [what] to do, which was assemble all the reporting that we could, that we had available to us, and put it in one report we could pass on to Congress,” said Clapper. “And that’s what we did.”
And what they did was spy on Trump’s campaign and fabricate evidence that he colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 election. This is not something Clapper should be proud of because it is illegal, and they botched it so badly.
This is a huge admission on Clapper’s part. Not only because he’s admitting that the intelligence community under him tried to take Trump out, but also because he implicated Obama as the “mastermind” of this operation. Is it weird that the entire liberal media is ignoring this?
The same liberal media that faints when President Trump says he doesn’t trust the intelligence community plays “eyesies closesies” when a member of the intelligence community proves Trump is right not to trust them.
It’s a guarantee that Clapper got a nasty e-mail after the interview telling him he said the quiet part out loud and that he should get his affairs in order. Crossing Obama isn’t quite as bad as doing it to the Clintons, but this one is big, and Clapper should be concerned for his safety. The last thing any of the deep state Obama loyalists want is for James Clapper to be deposed by AG Barr.
All of this is linked directly to the current Democratic party effort to impeach President Trump. Obama’s Justice Department conspired with Hillary Clinton to knock Trump out before the 2016 election. When that didn’t happen, the FBI and the intelligence community tried to frame Trump for colluding with the Russians to cut short his presidency. That didn’t happen either, and when Trump began investigating this skullduggery, they panicked and came up with the bogus Ukraine quid pro quo nonsense to take Trump out before he gets to them.
