    Former U.S President Barack Obama could not stop the spying. The people who prospered during Obama Presidency or got hired by Obama admin carried out the spying.

    Is this as much of a bombshell as I think it is ?

    ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: The 2017 assessment that the President says he now agrees with, that was done while you and then NCI Director John Brennan were still in office. So, how can we reconcile the President attacking you, but apparently after a very long time finally, allegedly saying — or saying he allegedly agrees with the product of the intelligence community that you, yourself oversaw?

    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.
    Nothing burger. Obama has plausible deniability. If the POTUS asks for an assessment of foriegn activities, it is part of his job (even though current Democrat/media narrative would call it evidence of wrongdoing if it were Trump).

    Obama did not lie to the FISA courts or promote fake evidence (UK Dossier). Obama did not (directly) leak to the media. But people around him no doubt did.

    Obama abused his power in order to rig the 2016 election and it's no big deal because he is part of the political elite and they don't even have to pretend to have integrity or to have morality because we expect the elite to cheat. if nothing is done about this then we will be doing this every 4-8 years

    We don’t know how much he personally was involved. And yes, this should be investigated. It is no mystery as to who lied to the FISA courts. They already know the source of some of the leaks. Start by prosecuting them, and if they will place blame on someone up the food chain, prosecute that person too. Highly unlikely it would ever get up to Obama.

    Barack Hussein Obama. ISIS and terrorists mayhem worldwide since 2011. Indian IT/Tech companies getting 90% H1-B visas. Google working for Democrats. It looks like Barack Obama was sent by enemies of America.
