Attorney General Bill Barr, speaking to Fox News about the Obama administration’s spying upon the Trump campaign, said, “What happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history. Without any basis they started this investigation of his campaign. And even more concerning actually is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president … to sabotage the presidency — or at least had the effect of sabotaging his presidency.”
The Obama administration official most responsible for this travesty is former CIA director John Brennan. John Durham, the prosecutor whom Barr assigned to examine Spygate, is said to be focusing on Brennan. It would appear that Durham has multiple grounds on which to indict him. We are told by the Wall Street Journal that Durham is looking into Brennan’s use of the Steele dossier and his attempts to influence the intelligence community’s assessment of Russian interference in the election.
Brennan’s CIA was a gusher of leaks before and after the election.
Let’s hope Durham is also still examining the origins of the travesty to which Barr referred — that the initial investigation into the Trump campaign “had no basis” to it. It was Brennan who initiated the sham investigation, which rested upon nothing more than flaky tips he claimed to have received from foreign intelligence agencies, from Estonia to Great Britain. It was Brennan and the Trump-hating Peter Strzok (the FBI’s liaison to the CIA, who received a special award from Brennan) who cooked up schemes to infiltrate the campaign, such as having a Cambridge academic, Stefan Halper, try and entrap George Papadopoulos. And it was Brennan who criminally leaked information about the FBI investigation into Trump to the former Nevada senator Harry Reid. Full Story - George Neumayr - American Spectator
Spygate: The True Story of Collusion How America’s most powerful agencies were weaponized against President Donald Trump
Epoch Times Jeff Carlson October, 2018 Updated March 26, 2020
CIA Director John Brennan, with some assistance from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, gathered foreign intelligence and fed it throughout our domestic Intelligence Community.
The FBI became the handler of Brennan’s intelligence and engaged in the more practical elements of surveillance.
Brennan became the point man in the operation to stop a potential Trump presidency. It remains unclear whether his role was self-appointed or came from above. To embark on such a mission without direct presidential authority seems both a stretch of the imagination and particularly foolhardy.
Brennan took unofficial foreign intelligence compiled by contacts, colleagues, and associates—primarily from the UK, but also from other Five Eyes members, such as Australia.
Ultimately, Brennan formed an inter-agency task force comprising an estimated six agencies and/or government departments. The FBI, Treasury, and DOJ handled the domestic inquiry into Trump and possible Russia connections. The CIA, Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the National Security Agency (NSA) handled foreign and intelligence aspects.
Brennan’s inter-agency task force is not to be confused with the July 2016 FBI counterintelligence investigation, which was formed later at Brennan’s urging.
During this time, Brennan also employed the use of reverse targeting, which relates to the targeting of a foreign individual with the intent of capturing data on a U.S. citizen [Which is Illegal]. This effort was uncovered and made public by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) Full Story - Jeff Carlson - Epoch Times
If you were reading the Wall Street Journal late last week, you might have noticed a story about a federal prosecutor, John Durham, from Connecticut. He is the man that Attorney General William Barr tapped a year ago to look into irregularities allegedly committed surrounding the 2016 election, possibly by high-ranking officials in our intelligence community. All of America is absorbed with the coronavirus pandemic. I am, too, but there are other matters of great import to be decided before this year is out. Durham’s investigation is one of them.
