If you pay attention to politics, it’s not exactly a secret that the former administration reneged on its promise for a smooth and peaceful transition of power to the newly elected president, and now former officials under Obama are finally admitting that was their intent all along.
Officials from the Obama administration told reporters from One America News that they were specifically ordered by the previous president to sabotage his successor using the Russian collusion conspiracy. According to the officials, they were told to leave an obvious breadcrumb trail behind them that made opening or continuing an investigation as easy as it could possibly be.
Further, they said that Obama sought to keep the Russian conspiracy alive after he left office by having intelligence agencies keep reports at low classification levels and making them available to as many government workers as possible.

The New York Times previously reported that Obama made it easier for the different intelligence agencies to share information among themselves with an executive order he signed just before leaving office. The order made it far easier for the NSA to share intercepted communications with other agencies prior to privacy protections being implemented– the very privacy protections that House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes said were abused after the NSA intercepted communications from the Trump transition team.
In a separate report, the Times also said that the Obama administration rushed to preserve any and all information gathered about Russian efforts to undermine the election as well as any evidence that the Trump campaign may have colluded with Russia during the election. The purpose? To spread it throughout government and ensure that, as the report from One America News stated, the Russian conspiracy would stay alive after Obama left office.
Individually, Obama’s efforts may seem innocuous or even in the interests of national security. However, when they’re combined and his actions before leaving office are looked at as a whole, it seems evident there was something much more nefarious happening – a concerted effort to undermine and delegitimize the incoming president.
