Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper admitted that Russian interference wasn’t viewed as any big deal by Obama despite intel about their meddling until it resulted in his party losing. If that’s not a purely politically motivated reason for an investigation than what is?
On Thursday, Clapper said President Barack Obama should be credited with launching “a whole sequence of events” that led to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russia collusion allegations.
In an interview with CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360, Clapper said: “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 [President Donald Trump’s] criticism of President Obama for all that he did or didn’t do before he left office with respect to the Russian meddling.”
Clapper added: “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 that’s an important point when it comes to critiquing President Obama.”
Why is Clapper speaking out now? Maybe he is trying to put a cleaner version out before Lisa Page gets immunity, to tell the truth.
So what do you think Is Obama responsible for Muller investigation?
