Has Clapper Just Thrown Obama Under The Bus?

By ICH and Agencies

If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, etc.



SCIUTTO: As you know, the president now has sitting members of this government. You have the attorney general traveling the world now, meeting with U.S. intelligence partners, trying to find out, in his view, whether they participated in some sort of Obama administration-led effort to undermine President Trump in the last election here. You also know that John Durham, who is a former prosecutor, senior Justice Department official, heís pursuing his own investigation on the origins of that probe. Are you concerned that Barrís or Durhamís investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials?

CLAPPER: Well, I donít know, I donít think there was any wrongdoing. I think at the time all of us were trying to navigate a very, very difficult, politically fraught, highly-charged situation. I know for my part, my main concern was, were the Russians, and the threat posed by the Russians to our very political fabric. And the message Iím getting from all this is, apparently what we were supposed to have done was to ignore the Russian interference, ignore the Russian meddling and the threat that it poses to us, and oh by the way, blowing off what the then-commander-in-chief, President Obama, told us to do, which was to assemble all the reporting that we could, that we had available to us and put it in one report that the president could pass on to the Congress and to the next administration. And, while weíre at it, declassify as much as we possibly could to make it public. And thatís what we did. And itís kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the president.
