In an astonishing statement, former Director National intelligence James Clapper threw former President Barack Obama under the bus and claimed that he ordered the Trump-Russia spying operation.
In an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN, Clapper discussed the fallout from the findings of the Mueller investigation.
Last Sunday, Attorney General William Barr released a summary of Mueller’s findings in relation to the Russian collusion investigation which clearly stated that the Trump campaign in no way colluded with Russia. This news has shocked the media and has sent the Democratic Party into a downward spiral.
Check out the summary of the interview provided by Red Right Videos:
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: The 2017 assessment that the President says he now agrees with, that was done while you and then NCI Director John Brennan were still in office. So, how can we reconcile the President attacking you, but apparently after a very long time finally, allegedly saying — or saying he allegedly agrees with the product of the intelligence community that you, yourself oversaw?
JAMES CLAPPER: Yes, well, this is — yes, as we’ve come to know the President, he is not a stalwart for a consistency or coherence. So it’s very hard to explain that. One point I’d like to make, Anderson, that I don’t think has come up very much before, and I’m alluding now to the President’s criticism of President Obama for all that he did or didn’t do before he left office with respect to the Russian meddling. If it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably, special counsel Mueller’s investigation.
President Obama is responsible for that, and it was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. I think it’s an important point when it comes to critiquing President Obama.

A pretty astonishing statement by Clapper. The house of cards seems to be falling and people like Clapper are throwing others under the bus to save themselves.
Recently, Senator Rand Paul has announced that his is introducing an amendment to the resolution that was passed by the House on releasing the Mueller Report. This amendment demands that more information be available on the reasons why the Obama Administration decided to investigate the Trump campaign by using the “unverified and patently false” Steele dossier.
The amendment introduced by Paul also demands releasing former President Barack Obama’s conversations about starting an investigation into then candidate Trump as well as communications relating to the decision not to indict Hillary Clinton for her blatant crimes.
