Jason Chaffetz reacts to the news that John Durham is expanding the Russia probe.
He says this is bad news for former Obama intel leaders John Brennan and James Clapper who are knee-deep in the effort to destroy President Trump with the Russia hoax.
Mueller faces new scrutiny too! He lied about being interviewed by President Trump for the job as FBI Director creating a conflict of interest in the Mueller investigation.
Durham is expanding the investigation and will release it next year. Chaffetz says this means there is something there.
Clapper and Brennan have been deeply involved in the Russia hoax but clapper just went on record saying they did what Obama told them to do:
Rush Limbaugh played a video clip of former DNI James Clapper saying that Obama ordered the intel agencies to do what they did during the Trump-Russia collusion hoax:
Clapper is being interviewed by Jim Sciutto who was also in the Obama administration:
RUSH: I want to go back to this Clapper bite because, folks, this is a gigantic deal. This is a big deal. This is James Clapper admitting that what all happened during the Trump-Russia collusion thing was ordered by Barack Obama. Listen again. Sound bite number 10.
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.
SCIUTTO: One issue I’m — (crosstalk)
CLAPPER: 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.

RUSH: I’ve been waiting for this. A lot of people have been waiting for this. Here’s Clapper saying, “I didn’t do anything wrong! We didn’t do anything wrong, ’cause we were doing what Obama told us to do.” The question he was asked is (summarized), “Are you worried about this investigation that Barr and he’s team’s running against you? Are you worried? You, Clapper and Brennan, are you guys worried?” (muttering) “Oh, no. Of course not. Why? (muttering) The president told us to do all that! (muttering) Obama was the president of the United States. Uhhh, the chief executive, uh, commander-in-chief, told us to do all that.”
Folks, can you say in any other time and place “bombshell”?
