WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former DNI Director James Clapper threw former President Barack Obama under the bus on CNN yesterday. Clapper admitted to CNN's Jim Sciutto that everything he and John Brennan had done prior to and during the 2016 election was explicitly on Barack Obama's orders.

Clapper confesses that they acted on Barack Obama's orders

Here is the conversation as it played out on CNN:

Jim Sciutto says,

"Are you concerned that Barr or Durham's investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials like you?"

CLAPPER:

"The message I'm 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, blown off what the then commander in chief, President Obama, told us to do. It's kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for, you know, having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the president."

Well there it is in black and white.

Everything that James Clapper, James Comey, and John Brennan did to create the Russia Hoax and undermine President Trump was on Barack Obama's direct order.

So let's take a look at what Obama ordered Clapper, Comey and Brennan to do.

Abusing NSA systems to spy on Americans

Brennan and Clapper were spying on thousands of Americans citizens using NSA surveillance systems under FISA 702 authority for over 4 years. James Comey specifically authorized three contractors' unlimited access to NSA surveillance systems. The contractors reported directly to Clapper and Brennan.

Over the span of 4 years, Clapper and / or Brennan, via their contractors, utilized the NSA data systems 40,000 times. FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled in April of 2017 that 85%, or 32,500 searches of the database were illegal, unconstitutional, a violation of the 4th Amendment and a violation of the civil rights of every American that was spied on.

James Clapper has just admitted that he and Brennan were just following orders. Orders from President Barack Obama.

The illegal abuse of NSA systems to spy on political opponents and thousands of Americans without a warrant lies at the heart of the genesis of the Russia Hoax. This is certainly what Barr is referring to, among other things, when he discusses "unauthorized surveillance" and "political surveillance".

Who was Obama spying on: Roberts, Scalia, Romney, Ryan, Hastings

Who were the subjects of Obama's illegal surveillance? Chief Justice John Roberts. Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and VP nominee Paul Ryan.

How about journalist Michael Hastings, who died in a fiery and mysterious car crash. Hastings was the Rolling Stone reporter whose story on Afghan forces commander General Stanley McCrystal destroyed his career and forced McCrystal into retirement. Hastings had said shortly before his death that he was working a huge story involving John Brennan and abuse of NSA surveillance systems. A week later he was dead.

Abusing the civil rights of all Americans

As Clapper and Brennan were working on Barrack Obama's orders then-President Obama knew of this illegal surveillance scheme. He is the top of the pyramid. Brennan reportedly delivered the contents of the information culled from the illegal spying to Barack Obama on a regular basis in sealed envelopes marked "eyes only".

The contents were restricted to the inner circle pf the Obama Oval Office.

The scheme to abuse the civil rights of all Americans by spying on 32,500 Americans illegally has to be at the center of the Durham investigation.

It is the underpinnings of the groundwork for the targeting and destruction of Donald Trump. Indeed, Trump is undoubtedly one of the thousands of Americans that Barack Obama was regularly spying on.

Setting up the Russia Hoax with foreign intelligence agencies

Brennan and Clapper, on Barack Obama's orders, set up the Russia Hoax and used it to weaponize the intelligence agencies and DOJ against the Trump campaign. John Brennan attempted to frame George Papadopoulos to target Donald Trump. Brennan set up the meetings with Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer, Stefan Halper, and George Papadopoulos.

Meetings that were taped and recorded.

This became the basis for Peter Strzok and Andrew Weissmann to launch the counterintelligence operation, Operation Crossfire Hurricane.

Using "evidence" they were completely aware had been fabricated by Brennan to target Trump. With the full cooperation of foreign intelligence agencies from Italy, Australia, and Great Britain.

All on the orders of Barack Obama.

The Steele Dossier and illegal FISA warrants

Clapper and Brennan were instrumental in leaking the Steele Dossier to the media, Harry Reid, and John McCain. Brennan used the dossier as the central underpinning of the Intelligence Community Assessment of 2016. Written by Brennan and Peter Strzok.

The same Dossier that Strzok, Weissmann and James Comey used to illegally obtain FISA warrants on Carter Page. Warrants that were illegally renewed 4 times. So that the Deep State could spy on the President-elect and then the sitting President of the United States.

All on the initial orders of Barack Obama.

This is the height of criminality.

Targeting American hero General Michael Flynn

Brennan and Clapper targeted the transition team and General Michael Flynn. They leaked the contents of Flynn's legitimate phone call with Sergei Kislyak and then ambushed him at the White House on James Comey's orders. The agent that interviewed Flynn was Peter Strzok.

Keep in mind that Michael Flynn and Stanley McCrystal, along with David Petraeus, won the Iraq and Afghan wars for the United States. They were the greatest military minds of their generation. They were American heroes.

All three were targeted by Barack Obama.

All three had their careers destroyed.

The Obama junta plots its next move in the Oval Office itself

On January 6 the junta seeking to destroy Trump met in Barrack Obama's Oval Office to plot the destruction of Trump after Obama left office. They loosened the rules for disseminating classified material. They plotted how to reveal the Steele dossier to the public.

At the meeting were Obama, VP Joe Biden, Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, James Clapper, John Brennan, Ben Rhodes and Sally Yates.

On January 16th Comey, Brennan, and Clapper briefed the President-elect. At the end off the meeting, Comey asked to speak to Trump privately. He then told Trump about the Golden Showers section of the dossier. After leaving the meeting with Trump he immediately called James Clapper, telling him "Mission accomplished."

That is his exact congressional testimony.

Clapper then immediately leaked to CNN that the President had been briefed about the contents of the Steele Dossier. Thus making the dossier "news" that could be reported. Within days Buzzfeed printed the entire dossier.

All of this occurred on the orders off Barack Obama.

Clapper and Brennan are nervous about Durham: They ought to be Clapper's inadvertent confession looks like a move to cover his tracks and implicate others. Both Clapper and Brennan appear to be quite nervous about their upcoming interviews with John Durham. They should be. Durham and Barr know a lot more about the details.

The details aren't good for any of the guilty parties involved. The ongoing 'Whistleblower" hoax is just the latest smokescreen to deflect from what Barr and Durham are uncovering. It won't work. The American people are not stupid.

Clapper's confession blaming Obama looks like a desperate appeal to Durham that he is willing to spill the beans. It is also a signal to Brennan and Comey that if Clapper goes down, he is taking them with him, along with Barack Obama. I have long speculated as to who will be willing to break ranks and look for a deal among the co-conspirators. Clapper is the obvious suspect.

John Durham and William Barr are definitely closing in on the co-conspirators in the Russia Hoax and the coup attempt against Donald Trump. James Clapper's confession is the death knell for Brennan and the Obama White House. Clapper, Brennan, Comey and Obama are in deep trouble.

Barack Obama was behind the entire affair. James Clapper has confirmed that.

We breathlessly await the Horowitz report, the Barr and Durham report, the subsequent indictments against the coup plotters, and the re-election of President Donald Trump.
