NSA's James Clapper Sings: Rats Out Obama For Spying OnTrump Campaign

Clapper (speaking with Anderson Cooper on CNN)

-----
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.

What on Earth does Obama have to do with anything now??? He has not been in office since January 2017. There aren't even any links here!
