Documents that have been declassified by the Director of National Intelligence show that then_CIA chief John Brennan briefed Barack Obama on “Hillary Clinton’s purported ‘plan’ to tie then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia as ‘a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server,” according to a report from Fox.
Much information has been uncovered about the Barack Obama administration’s strategy – and weaponization of America’s intelligence agencies – against the Trump campaign in 2016.
Did I miss something? Does anybody know what @RealDonaldTrump meant in the debate when he said “we have it all on tape”?@SharylAttkisson.
Carter Page was a CIA asset, not a Russian spy, and the FBI knew it early on but plowed ahead with its fantasy anyway.
Author’s Note: This is the first of a three-part series.
To answer the question posed in last Tuesday’s column, Yes, Kevin Clinesmith did plead guilty Wednesday. Sort of.
Well, maybe it was a smidge better than “sort of.” After all, it did happen in a federal-district-court proceeding (via videoconference) on Wednesday. And Judge James Boasberg did accept the plea after eliciting it in accordance with settled criminal-law rules. Sentencing is scheduled for December 10. So it’s official.
According to reports in November of 2019, U.S Attorney John Durham and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr were spending time on a narrowed focus looking carefully at CIA activity in the 2016 presidential election. One recent quote from a media-voice increasingly sympathetic to a political deep-state notes:
“One British official with knowledge of Barr’s wish list presented to London commented that “it is like nothing we have come across before, they are basically asking, in quite robust terms, for help in doing a hatchet job on their own intelligence services””. (Link)
It is interesting that quote came from a British intelligence official, as there appears to be evidence of an extensive CIA operation that likely involved U.K. intelligence services. In addition, and as a direct outcome, there is an aspect to the CIA operation that overlaps with both a U.S. and U.K. need to keep Wikileaks founder Julian Assange under tight control. In this outline we will explain where corrupt U.S. and U.K. interests merge.
Kevin Clinesmith, a former top lawyer in James Comey’s FBI, pleaded guilty on Friday to falsifying a federal spy warrant against Carter Page.
POLITICO: Sen. Ron Johnson says committee Republicans blocking subpoenas for James Comey, John Brennan. Wonder who it could be? A certain UTAH Senator? A failed Presidential soy boy?
Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the FBI acted without her authorization when interviewing incoming national security advisor Michael Flynn in January 2017.
When asked during the Senate hearing whether then-FBI Director James Comey “went rogue,” Yates replied, “You could use that term, yes.”
Yates is testify as part of the committee’s “Oversight of the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation,” which is focused on the FBI probe, under the Obama administration, into whether the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the race.
Explosive documents were released yesterday detailing a June 2016 defensive briefing given to then-Republican candidate Donald Trump, former national security advisor Michael Flynn and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — Sara Carter appeared on Hannity last night to discuss the news and how it reveals the extent to which the Trump campaign was spied on.
“These documents are explosive,” Carter reported. “It was 2016 and here’s Joe Pientka debriefing basically Trump, Governor Christie, and Michael Flynn. And then in January, he goes back to the White House with Peter Strzok— he’s the one that’s interviewing Michael Flynn.”
Carter explained how higher-ups, including President Obama himself, were giving directives on the spying directed at the Trump campaign.
Carter said Strzok, Pientka, and others were “directed by people above them. That is Andrew McCabe, that’s James Comey, and that’s those folks that were at the White House. Including the President, who knew everything that was going on.”
Hannity noted Obama needs to answer to these questions.
