If asked who were the most corrupt and disingenuous members of the U.S. government in the previous administration (other than the fall guy himself, that is), one would be hard-pressed not to come up with an answer of John Brennan first, with the two James’s, Clapper and Comey close seconds and thirds. Tragic they didn’t follow the example of Jeh Johnson (Homeland Security Chief) and at the very least give our President the opportunity to MAGA!
Then (as I featured in yesterday’s post) there’s Bill Priestap, who it appears, has flipped and is cooperating with the Devin Nunes’ investigation. Good to see there’s still at least one adult in the FBI’s Sr. leadership. He probably made the decision right after Comey threw him under the bus back in March of last year during his testimony to Congress.
Bill Bennett expressed it best on his show the other day, describing the political motives of DemoMarxists and the media being driven by a “moral narcissism” unprecedented in American history.
Just keep remembering that DemoMarxists have always followed the Saul Alinsky dictum of ‘the ends justify the means’ and ‘it really doesn’t matter how we get there as long as we get there’. However (and I really don’t care how much they hate Trump) I never thought the DemoMarxists would be the ones who eventually would be supporting the Secret Police. This is serious business, as likely, FISA, FBI, CIA, NSA, DOJ and the rest of the alphabet soup conglomerates will all be around long after Trump is gone.
Which brings me to this investigative piece from Paul Sperry in RealClear Investigations on the very people just mentioned in the intro. Titled “CIA Ex-Director Brennan’s Perjury Peril”, it is a polished, professional, and incisive revelation of just what has been going on for the past ten-plus years with Obama and his shady shadowy governance … Coming to a climax of course, with the failure of ‘Obama’s third term’ and the startling rise and election of Donald J. Trump…
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes next plans to investigate the role former CIA Director John Brennan and other Obama intelligence officials played in promoting the salacious and unverified Steele dossier on Donald Trump — including whether Brennan perjured himself in public testimony about it.
In his May 2017 testimony before the intelligence panel, Brennan emphatically denied the dossier factored into the intelligence community’s publicly released conclusion last year that Russia meddled in the 2016 election “to help Trump’s chances of victory.”
Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document (excerpt here), even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Last week, Nunes (R-Calif.) released a declassified memo exposing surveillance “abuses” by the Obama DOJ and FBI in their investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia. It said the agencies relied heavily on the uncorroborated dossier to take out a warrant to secretly surveil a Trump adviser in the heat of the 2016 presidential election, even though they were aware the underlying “intelligence” supporting the wiretap order was political opposition research funded by Clinton allies — a material fact they concealed from FISA court judges in four separate applications.
Nunes plans to soon release a separate report detailing the Obama State Department’s role in creating and disseminating the dossier — which has emerged as the foundation of the Obama administration’s Russia “collusion” investigation. Among other things, the report will identify Obama-appointed diplomats who worked with partisan operatives close to Hillary Clinton to help ex-British spy Christopher Steele compile the dossier, sources say.
“Those are the first two phases” of Nunes’ multipart inquiry, a senior investigator said. “In phase three, the involvement of the intelligence community will come into sharper focus.”
The aide, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said Nunes will focus on Brennan as well as President Obama’s first CIA director, Leon Panetta, along with the former president’s intelligence czar, James Clapper, and national security adviser, Susan Rice, and security adviser-turned U.N. ambassador Samantha Power, among other intelligence officials.
“John Brennan did more than anyone to promulgate the dirty dossier,” the investigator said. “He politicized and effectively weaponized what was false intelligence against Trump.”
Attempts to reach Brennan for comment were unsuccessful.
Several Capitol Hill sources say Brennan, a fiercely loyal Obama appointee, talked up the dossier to Democratic leaders, as well as the press, during the campaign. They say he also fed allegations about Trump-Russia contacts directly to the FBI, while pressuring the bureau to conduct an investigation of several Trump campaign figures starting in the summer of 2016.
