The Deep State is very real.
And John Brennan – Barack Obama’s CIA Director – sat at the heart of the anti-Trump conspiracy.
But now he just got some very bad news.
Congressional investigators are racing to discover what role Brennan played in the Russia investigation.
The book “Russian Roulette: The Inside of Vladimir Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump” claims Harry Reid believed Brennan was using him to publicize alleged intelligence claiming contacts between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
A CIA Director is supposed to be a nonpartisan figure so Brennan deployed Reid as his political envoy.
The Daily Caller reports:
“According to “Russian Roulette,” by Yahoo! News chief investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff and David Corn, the Washington bureau chief of the left-wing Mother Jones magazine, Brennan contacted Reid on Aug. 25, 2016, to brief him on the state of Russia’s interference in the presidential campaign. Brennan briefed other members of the so-called Gang of Eight, but Reid is the only who took direct action.
Two days after the briefing, Reid wrote a letter to then-FBI Director James Comey asserting that “evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount.”
Reid called on Comey to investigate the links “thoroughly and in a timely fashion.”
Reid saw Brennan’s outreach as “a sign of urgency,” Isikoff and Corn wrote in the book.
“Reid also had the impression that Brennan had an ulterior motive. He concluded the CIA chief believed the public needed to know about the Russian operation, including the information about the possible links to the Trump campaign.”
According to the book, Brennan told Reid that the intelligence community had determined that the Russian government was behind the hack and leak of Democratic emails and that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind it. Brennan also told Reid that there was evidence that Russian operatives were attempting to tamper with election results.”
Brennan’s information came from the fake news Christopher Steele dossier.
Brennan was using Reid to push the unverified allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians out into the mainstream media in order to try and swing the election back to Hillary.
The dossier has been the key to this scandal the entire time.
Investigators must determine how Obama administration officials used a phony dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton to weaponize the intelligence community against Donald Trump.
