    Former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell thinks that intelligence agencies were too harsh to Trump during the campaign and presidential transition, according to an interview released Monday. Morell, who left the CIA in 2013 after serving as its acting director twice, endorsed Hillary Clinton in an August 2016 New York Times op-ed. Politicoís Susan Glassner asked Morell if getting involved was a mistake and the former CIA official said that it wasnít, but that ďthere were downsides to it that I didnít think about at the time.Ē ďI was concerned about what is the impact it would have on the...

    Kaspersky Ties to Russian FSB Revealed Kaspersky Labs, the Moscow-based security provider, has adamatly denied any ties to the Russian government. However, CBS News recently confirmed a certificate has surfaced confirming a relationship between the security firm and the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB). This certificate confirms the U.S. governmentís concerns of ties between the security company and its government services. The relationship is concerning for many due to the questionable decisions of the Russian government, and whether or not this relationship would be abused to obtain classified information from the devices using Kaspersky for their security solution. This assumption...

    On Monday, Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on a House intelligence committee, delivered his opening statements at a hearing where he laid out the case for alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Schiff repeatedly raised questions about alleged collusion between Moscow and members of Donald Trumpís presidential campaign. Here are four serious problems with Schiffís charges, which include wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source: 1 Ė Throughout his opening statement, Schiff repeatedly relied on information provided by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer who was reportedly paid by Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans...

    This is the same Mike Morell who helped prepare the infamous administration talking points on Benghazi used by Susan Rice, and who published an op-ed last August titled, ‚ÄúI Ran the C.I.A. Now I¬ím Endorsing Hillary Clinton.‚ÄĚ Citing Trump‚Äôs endless apologetics for Putin in that piece, he wrote, ‚ÄúIn the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.‚ÄĚ Not a guy, in other words, who would naturally be eager to dismiss suspicions about Trump staffers conspiring with Russia to meddle in the campaign against Hillary.

    Former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell believes the leak of CIA documents published this week by WikiLeaks "has to be an inside job." "This data is not shared outside CIA. It's only inside CIA," Morell said in an interview with "CBS This Morning" on Saturday. He argued that the data is on CIA's "secret network" that is not connected to other networks. "It's on CIA's top secret network, which is not connected to any other network. So, this has to be an inside job," he added.

CBS News national security analyst Mike Morell told ďCBS This MorningĒ Thursday that this terror group poses both short- and long-term threats to the U.S. ďThe short-term concern is the Americans that have gone to fight with ISIS and the west Europeans that have gone to fight with ISIS could be trained and directed by ISIS to come to the United States to conduct small-scale attacks,Ē Morell stated. ďIf an ISIS member showed up at a...

    Among other discrepancies, Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee allege Morell insisted the talking points were sent to the White House for informational purposes, and not for their input -- but emails, later released by the administration, showed otherwise. "We found that there was actual coordination which could influence then -- and did influence -- what CIA conveyed to the committees about what happened [in Benghazi]," Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., told Fox News.

    Then CIA-Director David Petraeus objected to the final talking points the Obama administration used after the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, because he wanted to see more details revealed to the public, according to emails released Wednesday by the White House. Under pressure in the investigation that continues eight months after the attacks, the White House on Wednesday released 99 pages of emails and a single page of hand-written notes made by Petraeus' deputy, Mike Morell, after a meeting at the White House on Saturday, Sept. 15. On that page, Morell scratched out from the...

Morell: So I think that foreign intelligence services, the good ones, the good ones, have everything on any unclassified network that the government uses, whether it's a private server or a public one. They're that good. Hewitt: So that's a yes? Morell: Yup. I did not expect such bluntness from so high ranking a former official, but this is exactly the same answer I have received off the record from four other...

    I ran across this heavily edited article at USA Today written by Susan Page.  In it, she reports a new book coming out by a man she describes as having a "33-year career with the CIA."  This man is Michael Morell who praises Barack Obama as "extremely thorough" but claims that Governor Palin had "no understanding of national security issues" back when he claims to have met her in 2008. Everything from the headline to the image Susan Page uses indicates who the USA Today writer was interested in spotlighting.  (Yep, Governor Palin remains the left’s ultimate bogeyman).  Furthermore, when one digs a tad...

    Former acting Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morell testified before the House Intelligence Committee last month, saying the Benghazi CIA station chief e-mailed three possibilities for what had motivated the 2012 attack:... Morell also denied any kind of cover-up or political influence ... "...why you took out the word terrorist and put in the word extremist, why you sanitized and washed out all the criticism of the State Department, why you changed the word attack to demonstration," said Gowdy. "Every single change that Mike Morell made was calculated to cast the administration in a more favorable light."
