Bombshell: Obama Official and CNN Sweetheart John Brennen Is Now Being Investigated By Attorney General
Very quietly, on Friday night reports started coming out that US Attorney John Durham who is in charge of investigating criminal activity by federal officials that created the Russia hoax is looking into former CIA Director John Brennan.
US Attorney John Durham is looking at emails, call logs and other communications made by Brennan as part of a “broad investigation” into the beginnings of the Trump-Russia probe.
The New York Times, trying to get out ahead of it no doubt, cited three sources who all reported that Durham, the US attorney in Connecticut is looking into the role that Brennan played in assessing that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump.
According to the New York Times:
Durham also wants to know about Brennan’s views of the Steele dossier, the Democrat-funded opposition research that alleged a “well-developed conspiracy of co-operation” between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
Brennan has said that the CIA did not use the dossier, which was written by former British spy Christopher Steele, in its assessment regarding Russian interference in the election.
FBI officials, to include former Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, pushed to use the dossier in an Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian meddling that was published on January 6, 2017.
The IG report has given us a small look into the discussion between the CIA and the FBI regarding the use of the Steele dossier.
An FBI official told the Inspector General investigators that the CIA viewed the dossier as an “Internet rumor.” However, Brennan has said in multiple interviews since leaving the CIA that Steele’s information was credible because it tracked with other intelligence that had been collected.
There were things in that dossier made me wonder whether or not they were in fact accurate and true,” Brennan said in an interview on Feb. 4, 2018. “I do think it was up to the FBI to see whether or not they could verify any of it. Jim Comey has said it contained salacious and unverified information. Just because it wasn’t unverified doesn’t mean it wasn’t true.”
Brennan claims he personally did not read the dossier until December 2016 however, had heard about it from reporters in late Summer 2016
It appears that Brennan’s words are going to come back and haunt him. If he did push the dossier he could find himself in a lot of trouble with the US Attorney Durham. If Brennan didn’t push the dossier and was involved in classifying it as an internet rumor he will undo all attempts by the left that claim the Steele Dossier was true.
