As the Democrats continue their silly “pre-impeachment” investigation in a super-secret SCIF, or “sensitive compartmented information facility,” the real investigation — the one likely to bear convictions — is taking place in plain view under the watchful eye of U.S. Attorney John Durham.

This is the criminal investigation into the origins of the government’s targeting of the 2016 Trump campaign, and its focus on a president other than Donald Trump. One of his minions, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, appeared recently on CNN where he said he was simply following orders from Barack Obama, who had ordered intelligence agencies to gather information on Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Here is what Clapper had to say. A transcript follows the video:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?


Jim Sciutto: Are you concerned that Barr or Durham’s investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials like you?

James 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, which was to assemble all the reporting that we could that we had available to us and put it in one report that the president could pass on to the Congress and to the next administration. And while we’re at it, declassify as much as we possibly could to make it public, and that’s what we did.

It will be interesting to see where this leads.
