Clapper Admits Obama Directed him to go After Trump?

During a recent propaganda session, former Director of National Intelligence appears to admit that then-President Obama ordered him and others to go after then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.

According to Town Hall:

As U.S. Attorney John Durham continues his criminal investigation into the origins of the government's targeting of the 2016 Trump campaign, former Obama administration intelligence officials are denying any wrong doing and justifying their actions. 

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is arguing he was concerned about the Russians interfering in the election, which is why his agency gathered "information." During a recent interview with CNN, Clapper admitted he was simply following orders from the "commander-in-chief," who had ordered intelligence agencies to do so. 

"I don't know. I don’t think there was any wrongdoing," Clapper said. "My main concern was with the Russians and the threat posed by the Russians to our very political fabric and ugh, the message I'm getting from all of 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, blown off what the then commander-in-chief, President Obama, told us to do, which was to assemble all of the reporting we could."


"What Obama told us to do...."

This is quite a telling statement about President Obama's involvement in the surveillance of a political opponent, Donald Trump, who vowed to reverse his legacy if elected. There's also a pattern.



"I'm supposedly going to be interviewed by Mr. Durham as part of this non-investigation... I don't understand the predication of this worldwide effort to try to uncover dirt... that would discredit that investigation in 2016" - @JohnBrennan w/ @NicolleDWallace


Neither @barackobama nor any WH official under Obama has ever ordered surveillance on any US Citizen. Any suggestion is unequivocally false

Another troubling claim comes from the Defense Department that officials there were preserving evidence before Trump was inaugurated.
