ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: The 2017 evaluation that the President says he now agrees with, that was finished whilst you after which NCI Director John Brennan have been nonetheless in workplace. So, how can we reconcile the President attacking you, however apparently after a really very long time lastly, allegedly saying — or saying he allegedly agrees with the product of the intelligence group that you simply, your self oversaw?

JAMES CLAPPER: Yes, properly, that is — sure, as we’ve come to know the President, he isn’t a stalwart for a consistency or coherence. So it’s very arduous to clarify that. One level I’d wish to make, Anderson, that I don’t suppose has come up very a lot earlier than, and I’m alluding now to the President’s criticism of President Obama for all that he did or didn’t do earlier than he left workplace with respect to the Russian meddling. If it weren’t for President Obama, we’d not have finished the intelligence group evaluation that we did that set off a complete sequence of occasions that are nonetheless unfolding at this time, notably, particular counsel Mueller’s investigation.

President Obama is chargeable for that, and it was he who tasked us to try this intelligence group evaluation in the first place. I believe it’s an necessary level on the subject of critiquing President Obama.
