James Clapper recently said the quiet part out loud.
While talking about the deep state interference in the 2016 election, he basically blamed Obama and said people were just following orders.

Clapper on 2016 Election Scandal: We Did ‘What We Were Told To Do by The President,’ Obama
On the Oct. 8 edition of CNN Newsroom, host Jim Sciutto asked Clapper, “As you know, the president has members of this government, you have the Attorney General [William Barr] traveling the world now meeting with U.S. intelligence partners trying to find out, in his view, whether they participated in some sort of Obama administration-led effort to undermine President Trump in the last election here. You also know that John Durham who is a prosecutor here, a senior Justice Department official, he’s pursuing his own investigations on the origins of that probe.
“Are you concerned that Barr’s or Durham’s investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials?”
Clapper, a strong critic of Trump, replied, “Well, I uh, I don’t know. I, I don’t think there was any wrongdoing. I think at the time all of us were trying to navigate a very, very difficult, politically fraught, highly charged situation. I know, for my part, my main concern was the Russians, and the threat posed by the Russians to our very political fabric.
“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.”

Is he even aware of the gravity of what he just said?
Clapper is the weakest link. Pressure him, he will spill the beans. He has been the weakest link since all this began. So much time wasted. If they had leaned on him in beginning all this would be over.

At some point in the future, this is all going to come out.
And it’s going to be ugly.
