I guess all the lefties never read the OP.

Here is a paragraph for them.

In fact, however, officials “mishandled intelligence” and tried to extricate this source in 2016, before Trump even won the presidential election. The New York Times reports intelligence officials compromised this source by gossiping about him to news reporters. (emphasis added)​

So where is Obama involved in outing the spy? If the spy was compromised back then how did they live so long?
The reason Trump was invoked is that given his past accommodating behaviour toward Russians, and his frequent blabbing of secrets, it's a credible assumption that the man's life would be in danger if Trump knew.

Yeah, anything that contradicts the right wing meme being pushed is now by definition a “thread derail.” If anything, the link seems quite germane to the topic. The right is desperately trying to put a spin on the story more to their liking.
Just putting out proven fact over the lies of the Dem Media.
