Durham Criminal Investigation Focuses On Brennan And Comey

Federal prosecutor John Durham wants to know what former C.I.A. director John Brennan knew and who did he talk to regarding the Steele Dossier and Russia’s 2016 election meddling.

“The federal prosecutor scrutinizing the Russia investigation has begun examining the role of the former C.I.A. director John O. Brennan in how the intelligence community assessed Russia’s 2016 election interference, according to three people briefed on the inquiry.

John H. Durham, the United States attorney leading the investigation, has requested Mr. Brennan’s emails, call logs and other documents from the C.I.A., according to a person briefed on his inquiry. He wants to learn what Mr. Brennan told other officials, including the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey, about his and the C.I.A.’s views of a notorious dossier of assertions about Russia and Trump associates.”

Keep in mind that this is a criminal investigation. It is not the same as the Inspector General investigation which looked solely into processes. This investigation is looking into everything and everyone.

The NY Times states multiple times throughout its story that the investigation wants to know the who, what, why, of how the intelligence community reviewed and assessed the extent of Russia’s involvement/interference in the 2016 election.

This is important for several reasons.

  1. The Horowitz Report found that the C.I.A. had informed the FBI that the Steele Dossier is unreliable and should be treated as nothing more than an internet rumor.
  2. The report ALSO found that an agent within the FBI had altered an email regarding Carter Page in which the C.I.A. specifically stated that Page WAS a credible asset to the agency.
  3. The Dunham investigation is looking into ALL conduct by EVERYONE involved

You know what else the Horowitz report found??

“The new report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed former CIA Director John Brennan lied to Congress about whether the dossier authored by Christopher Steele was used in the Obama administration’s Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA).”

Is it any wonder that Durham wants every single record of calls, texts, emails, and conversations that Brennan had with everyone? And yes, that includes James Comey. Keep in mind, the FBI relied upon the Steele Dossier for the FISA warrants against Carter Page. Yet Comey has told everyone that the dossier was just a notation in an appendix.

Not only NBC’s role, but specifically that of John Brennan and James Comey. Remember, this is what Comey said about presenting the dossier to Obama.

“Comey said Brennan and other officials argued it was “important” enough to include in the ICA — clearly part of the “corpus of intelligence information” they had.”

According to Comey’s recollections, Brennan and Clapper among others told him that the Steele Dossier was credible on its face. It was important enough to be included in the appendix of the ICA report, the very same one that Brennan briefed Harry Reid about?. And, it was important enough to run a defensive briefing for the Clinton campaign. However, it WASN’T important enough to run a defensive briefing for the Trump campaign!

Never mind that, lets provide cover for John Brennan shall we? Remember John Brennan? The same guy who had his security clearance yanked? The same guy who then whined in a NY Times op-ed that Trump’s claim that there wasn’t any collusion was bunk? That same former C.I.A. dude, who couldn’t figure out that Trump was joking? Who also claimed that he told the Russians to ‘knock it off’ regarding trying to interfere in the 2016 election? Yeah, that guy.

Someone has their nose under Brennan’s …tent. You know, Evan McMuffin really needs to start paying his campaign debts and quit tweeting.

The thing is, the IG report put a glaring spotlight upon the credibility of the FBI because of the actions of a few. That includes John Brennan and anyone at the C.I.A. as well as any other government agency. The investigation should leave no stone unturned. No one should, and I hope no one will escape unscathed for their role in trying to destroy this Republic.

    Sadly, I don’t expect much more consequence to this than to any other scandal in the last 40 years.

    Nina, how do you think the Muffin is paying his campaign debts? Although I will posit that he probably is not doing much more than servicing part of the interest; Regressives are notorious cheapskates.
