While Barack Hussein Obama may have departed office, his legacy hasn’t been erased completely. Trump has leveled ISIS, curtailed Obamacare, and stopped Obama’s many job-killing regulations and tax hikes, but the Russian hacking investigation continues with deep state bureaucrats desperate to derail Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper appeared on CNN last week and admitted that it was in fact Obama who sparked the entire Russian hacking debacle.
“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 said while appearing on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”
“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,” he said.
Obama tried to do what he could to help his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton obtain higher office but to no avail. Trump believes that the Obama regime was more focused on assisting Clinton than ensuring election integrity, and their lack of focus could have opened the doors for Russians or other hostile agents to strike.
“The reason they decided that was pretty obvious to all — they thought [2016 Democratic presidential nominee] Hillary Clinton was going to win the election, and they didn’t think it was a big deal,” Trump said to reporters last week. “By contrast, my administration is taking a very firm stance.”
“We’re going to take strong actions to secure our election systems and the process. Unlike previous administrations, my administration has and will continue to move aggressively to [repel] any efforts … to interfere in our elections. We are doing everything in our power to prevent Russian interference in 2018,” he said.
Former DNI head Clapper infamously lied to the American public during sworn Congressional testimony about the nature of NSA spying. Despite committing perjury in broad daylight, Clapper was never charged with any crime and continues to be allowed on the mainstream media as a supposed expert to this very day. These are the types of folks leading the witch hunt against President Trump.
