Here’s a theory; Obama can’t get people he wants into high places because of accessibility/security reasons, POTUS signs EO to allow the dissemination of classified info to 16 additional agencies geometrically bringing access to this once privileged info to lower levels.
When he signed that EO it was to create an avalance of snowflakes to cover the original crime. Watergate Redux! The real DNC Trail of Tears is the one the EO was ment hide, but that Team Trump is Zeroing in on. The Obama presidency just got a final page in history, no body will care much about accomplishments, but rather his failings.
Here’s a question: has obamaumao-that-was’s Exec. Order been reversed? Or possibly being allowed to continue with a secondary surveillance of all the “new” leakers... as a condition of removal from employment, having compartmentalized and contained the existing threat-— thanks to loyal “whistleblowers” who will not ever be ID’d from “hard copy” info viewed at the NSC by only two from outside the Exec. Branch control: Nunes and Schiff.
