Clapper: Obama Ordered The Intelligence Assessment That Resulted In Mueller Investigation
[REALCLEARPOLITICS] Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper revealed in an interview last week that if not for President Obama asking for an intelligence community assessment that "set off a whole sequence of events" we would not have the Mueller investigation. Clapper, a CNN contributor, said the effects of that intel assessment "are still unfolding today."

"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," Clapper said Wednesday on CNN.
An illegal FISA warrant and intelligence collection against US Persons (USP) is now being cloaked as an Obama directed "Intelligence Assessment."

#1 You know Anderson, Befehl ist Befehl ("an order is an order"). We were simply following presidential orders.
