  • British Role Confirmed in Trump Spying Scandal

    AIM ^ | April 17, 2017
    The British Guardian posted a report on April 13 claiming that its sources now admit that the British spy agency GCHQ was digitally wiretapping Trump associates, going back to late 2015. This was presumably when the December 2015 Moscow meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Lt. General Michael Flynn took place. This runs contrary to the blanket nature of the denial insinuated in GCHQ’s carefully-crafted statement of March 17 claiming it was all “nonsense” and “utterly ridiculous” that they conducted surveillance of “then president-elect” Donald Trump (emphasis added). The surveillance went back a year before he became “president-elect.”

    Here's the breathless title from ReutersFormer intelligence officials say Trump is being manipulated by PutinFormer CIA Director John Brennan and ex-National Intelligence Director James Clapper both said Trump was mishandling Moscow ties even as a special counsel investigates possible collusion between Trump’s campaign team and Russia. “I think Mr. Trump is, for whatever reason, either intimidated by Mr. Putin, afraid of what he could do, or what might come out as a result of these investigations... It’s either naiveté, ignorance or fear in terms of what Mr. Trump is doing vis-à-vis the Russians,” Brennan said in an appearance with Clapper on...

    Former CIA chief John Brennan thinks Donald Trump is being easily fooled by Vladimir Putin. Brennan and James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, were responding to Trump’s remarks in Asia where he said he believed Putin when the Russian leader stated he had not tried to interfere in the 2016 election in the US. […] Brennan utterly dismissed Trump’s assessment. “I don’t know why the ambiguity about this,” Brennan said. “Putin is committed to undermining our system, our democracy and our whole process. And to try paint it in any other way is, I think, astounding, and, in fact,...

    (snip) Now, that brings us to the Fusion GPS debacle. Given his past high-profile intelligence failures, legitimate questions need to be asked of Brennan. First, who gave Brennan the Fusion GPS dossier? Second, was he aware at the time that the information was political fodder paid for by the DNC, intended to damage the opposing party’s candidate? Did he accept it on its face as serious intelligence material? Third, was Brennan aware that he may have been used as a tool of the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign as the vehicle by which to get the document infused into the...

    Former President Barack Obama’s former top spy has provided the first public confirmation that the FBI possessed and studied the discredited anti-Trump dossier that made unverified criminal charges against the president’s campaign associates and others. CIA director John O. Brennan appeared Tuesday before the House Intelligence Committee. “I know that there were efforts made by the bureau to try to understand whether or not any of the information in that was valid,” Mr. Brennan said of the 35-page document compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele and paid for by Democratic-tied Fusion GPS in Washington. Mr. Gowdy asked Mr. Brennan: “Do...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan said Wednesday that he finds it “implausible” that Americans did not help Russian operatives interfere, either “wittingly or unwittingly,” in the presidential campaign last year. During an event at Fordham University, Brennan was asked by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell whether he believed that Russians could have figured out how to target areas in swing states like Michigan and Wisconsin without the help of Americans, including in the Trump campaign. “Is it your theory of the case that there was some connection between the campaign and the Russian operations?” Mitchell asked. “It’s hard for me to believe...

    American Greatness ^ | September 25,2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Rarely has an intelligence apparatus engaged in systematic lying—and chronic deceit about its lying—both during and even after its tenure. Yet the Obama Administration’s four top security and intelligence officials time and again engaged in untruth, as if peddling lies was part of their job descriptions. So far none have been held accountable. Those exemptions are likely because, in hubristic fashion, all four assumed their service to progressive noble agendas would justify any odious means felt necessary to achieve them. In part their liberal credentials were seen as guarantees that the media either would ignore or excuse their dissimulation. And...

    From the beginning it was a set up to find dirt on Trump campaign insiders and if possible to topple Donald Trump’s presidential aspirations. Before and after the 2016 election. And while this operation had many moving parts and alternating players, the mission to unseat Trump never changed. And it remains ongoing. Paul Manafort was wiretapped. Cater Page was wiretapped. Donald Trump Jr. was wiretapped. Jared Kushner was wiretapped. Gen. Michael Flynn was wiretapped. And likely there were others. Find Out More > 62,840 And none of it was very legal.

    Hackers have breached a database containing a wealth of sensitive information from federal employees’ security background checks, the Obama administration said Friday — news that experts say could deal a devastating blow to U.S. intelligence gathering. The revelations came just a week after officials disclosed a previous massive cyber intrusion into the same federal personnel office, compromising records of more than 4 million current and past employees in a breach that administration officials have privately blamed on Chinese hackers. The stolen records in the hack disclosed Friday included data on intelligence and military personnel, The Associated Press reported. A senior...

    Former CIA director John Brennan blasted Donald Trump over statements the president made at Tuesday’s defiant, impromptu news conference in New York at which he spoke at length about the violence that followed a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Brennan wrote a letter to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer with his impressions of Trump’s performance, the network said, in which he took issue with the president’s “ugly” and “dangerous” rhetoric.... ... Brennan said he was especially troubled by the message Trump’s remarks had sent to the families of those who had suffered under Nazism, and called the president’s moral relativist version...

    Even lefty Seymour Hersh agrees that the Russian fable begin in the mind of Obama’s CIA director. One wouldn’t expect Seymour Hersh, a lefty journalist par excellance, to pop the Trump-Russia propaganda balloon Obama’s CIA director John Brennan released last year. But he has. Hersh has been quoted as saying that the collusion claim is a product of “disinformation” — “a Brennan operation,” as he puts it. Hersh says that Trump is not the villain but the victim in this story, and that the press has served as a shameful stenographer for Brennan to smear Trump. It has shown no...

    On July 10, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC about a block from his apartment. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone. Via Wikipedia: Earlier that night he had been at Lou’s City Bar, a sports pub 1.8 miles from his apartment, in Columbia Heights, where he was a regular customer. He left when the bar was closing, at about 1:30 or 1:45 a.m. Police were alerted to gunfire at 4:20 a.m. by an automated gunfire locator. Within approximately one minute after the gun...

These people have gone literally bonkers here! And the left doesn’t particularly like the Boy Scouts, in my recollection. President Trump went out there, said, who wants to hear about Washington, right? Trump proceeded to give them 40 minutes on Washington and ripped Washington to shreds and the Boy Scouts were loving it, “USA, USA, we love Trump.” And the left and the media and everybody once again blew...

    Earlier this morning, The Gateway Pundit reported Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan hinted that a coup should be carried out if President Trump fires Special Counsel Robert Mueller. At the same event in which Brennan made the shocking suggestion, former Obama official Evelyn Farkas urged the intelligence community to compromise its sources and methods for the purpose of “saving American democracy.” “Saving American democracy,” was a reference to accepting the findings of Russia interfering in the 2016 presidential election. Breitbart News reports: “And I know that we have to preserve our sources and methods,” Farkas said, speaking about the U.S....

    Former CIA Director John Brennan says government officials should refuse orders to fire special counsel Robert Mueller if they are told to by the White House. "I think it's the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future," Brennan told CNN's Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum. Brennan was appearing with former Director...

    The GOP operative who admitted reaching out to Russian hackers for Hillary Clinton’s emails killed himself days after opening up to a reporter. Peter Smith told the Wall Street Journal in May that he reached out to people he believed were affiliated with the Kremlin to find messages from the Democrat’s private server. The Journal report from late last month, which showed that he had claimed to be working with future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, said Smith died about 10 days after the conversation.

    Shortened Title. Full title: Report: Obama Admin Relied On Outside Country For ‘Critical Intelligence’ Claiming Russia Interference Adding more mystery to the Russian interference narrative, some of the most important technical intelligence used by the Obama administration to allege that Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election came from another country, the Washington Post reported. The source of the intelligence led to the National Security Agency’s (NSA) reluctance to make conclusions with high confidence based on the data, the Post reported.
