Skip to comments.Peter Strzok was selected by John Brennan to help author the ICA, based partly on the Steele dossier

Real Clear Investigations has a story up today which sheds some light on Former CIA Director John Brennan and the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) which he helped produce. Specifically, it reveals that Brennans claims that the dossier was not used in the creation of the ICA appear to be false. Also, Brennan hand-selected the authors of the assessment including anti-Trump partisan Peter Strzok. In case youve forgotten some of the details, the January 2017 ICA reached this conclusion about the goals of Russian interference in the 2016 election:

Brennan is part of the Muslim Mafia infiltrated into the government by Obama.If there was any justice, that’s what would be investigated.
DJT has the authority, and should, declassify ALL the documents the Congress has been attempting to get from the FBI and DOJ relating to the phony Russia collusion probe, the Deep State coverup and related matters, including the documents which were redacted.
This is the only way we’ll get to the truth.
Obama ordered the FBI/CIA to make a report on the Russian interference in December of 2016 and said he wanted it done before he left office.
If it was such a big deal, why weren't "We the People" told of it before the election?
We need to take them all down one by one, get rid of sessions and Rothstein and send in some attack dogs
Brennan always looks like a Neanderthal.
Was this the “18 agencies agree” crap?
After having spent decades overturning foreign governments, the CIA is now in the business of overturning American governments as well.
Yeah. “All 18 intelligence agencies agree” actually meant the heads of 3 agencies assigned specifically selected people who were told to write a paper that would agree with the conclusion already decided upon by the heads of those three agencies (FBI, NSA, CIA).
I agree, but I would like to see CONgress do it, By JAILING recalcitrant and uncooperative witnesses for contempt. YES Congress has their Very Own Jail.
Congress has ALL the power in washington, the executive and judicial branch operate according to the whims of CONGRESS!
TITLE 2—THE CONGRESS
CHAPTER 6—CONGRESSIONAL AND COMMITTEE PROCEDURE; INVESTIGATIONS
Sec. 193. Privilege of witnesses
No witness is privileged to refuse to testify to any fact, or to produce any paper, respecting which he shall be examined by either House of Congress, or by any joint committee established by a joint or concurrent resolution of the two Houses of Congress, or by any committee of either House, upon the ground that his testimony to such fact or his production of such paper may tend to disgrace him or otherwise render him infamous.”
Simply look up Hinds Precedents, especially chapters 53 and 51, and Cannon’s Precedents, especially chapters 184-185. You’ll find numerous detailed cases of Congress asserting its power, arresting people, holding them until they agreed to answer questions, and then releasing them. Some of these people did not refuse to appear, but simply failed to satisfactorily answer questions. One has to wonder how a previous Congress might have responded to Alberto Gonzales’s endless recitations of “I do not recall.”
Congress can Remove the President
Congress can remove the head of every executive agency Congress can remove ALL of their employees
Congress can Abolish every agency they so choose
Congress can remove EVERY JUDGE IN AMERICA, including every supreme court justice.
Congress can abolish every federal court except the supreme Court
Congress can decide which cases the Judicial Branch can hear and decide
CONGRESS can Imprison ANYONE they want for any reason they so desire for as long as they wish.
Congress can declare WAR
No other governing body has even 10% of the power CONGRESS has!!
CONGRESS IS ALLOWING ALL OF IT!!!
Congress has the authority to arrest and imprison those found in Contempt. The power extends throughout the United States and is an inherent power (does not depend upon legislated act)
If found in Contempt the person can be arrested under a warrant of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or President of the Senate, by the respective Sergeant at Arms.
Statutory criminal contempt is an alternative to inherent contempt.
Under the inherent contempt power Congress may imprison a person for a specific period of time or an indefinite period of time, except a person imprisoned by the House of Representatives may not be imprisoned beyond adjournment of a session of Congress.
Imprisonment may be coercive or punitive.

 An analysis of Congressional inquiry, subpoena, and enforcement http://www.constitutionproject.org/documents/when-congress-comes-calling-a-primer-on-the-principles-practices-and-pragmatics-of-legislative-inquiry/
In 1857, a New York Times reporter refused to say which members of Congress had asked him to get them bribes (protecting his “sources” just as various Judith Millers today protect the people who feed them proven lies that costs thousands of lives), so Congress locked him up until he answered and then banned him from Congress.
In 1924 an oil executive appeared but refused to answer certain questions, so the Senate held — literally held — him in contempt. Senator Thomas Walsh of Montana argued that this question of contempt was of the gravest importance, and that it involved “the very life of the effective existence of the House of Representatives of the United States and of the Senate of the United States.” The matter was taken to court, and the witness fined and imprisoned.
i keep seeing his head on a pike
We all knew this scumbag was up to his eyeballs in this coup.
They’ve beed overturning ours for decades too. I.E. JFK
Review of the ICA review -
Page 1 boilerplate about what spies do includes howlers like this:
“When Intelligence Community analysts use words such as we assess or we judge, they are conveying an analytic assessment or judgment.”
Wow I’m glad we are paying for 17 different agencies to produce tautologies for us! Actually worse than a tautology, it is as informative as saying “when I say this, I say this”.
Page 2 - half of it is blank
Page 3 - “cool” graphics
Page 4 - intentionally left blank
Page 5 - refers to “Pro-Kremlin social media actors” - gee any Russian with a Facebook account!
Page 7 - Russia wants to undermine the “liberal democratic order”. Trust me Reagan was not their comrade, and he was not liberal and he was not a Democrat. Also mentions “paid social media users or trolls”. I think the trolls we are familiar with are from the Democratic Underground lol. Bottom half of page blank
page 8 - more “cool” graphics
page 9 - table of “contents”
page 10 - more “cool” graphics
page 11 - “Putin most likely wanted to discredit Secretary
Clinton because he has publicly blamed her since 2011 for inciting mass protests against his regime in late 2011 and early 2012, and because he holds a grudge for comments he almost certainly saw as disparaging him.”
I don’t think Putin gives a rat’s ass about Hillary Clinton’s comments about him.
“Beginning in June, Putins public comments about the US presidential race avoided directly praising President-elect Trump”. So there is no evidence Putin wanted Trump to win - but let’s use our “assessments” and “judgments”, who need “evidence”??
page 12- “In July 2015, Russian intelligence gained access to Democratic National Committee (DNC)networks and maintained that access until at least June 2016.” Then the DNC is a bunch of idiots - but I repeat myself.
“Guccifer 2.0, who claimed to be an independent Romanian hacker, made multiple contradictory statements and false claims about his likely Russian identity throughout the election. Press reporting suggests more than
one person claiming to be Guccifer 2.0 interacted with journalists.” So a mystery man or men said contradictory things about himself/themselves - according to “press reporting”! Thanks! for this we pay 17 agencies billions of dollars?? for this kind of brilliant insight? Reading the “press”? Good thing Peter Strzok (who contributed to this report) is an idiot - or Trump might be in trouble.
page 13 - “RTs most popular video on Secretary Clinton, How 100% of the Clintons Charity Went to...Themselves, had more than 9 million views on social media platforms.” Well thank God RT reported this because the New York Times didn’t.
page 14 -”A journalist who is a leading expert on the Internet Research Agency claimed that some social media accounts that appear to be tied to Russias professional trolls ..started to advocate for President-elect Trump “ - this can’t be true because there aren’t any journalists who ever supported Trump! Was that Megyn Kelley? Chris Cuomo? George Will? No they are all much too SMART to support Trump right?
page 15 - now a history lesson, thanks a 1 paragraph summary of the 30 year Cold War.
and then the Annex - screen shots from RT - who knew the Russians had television? But of course I watch Russian television, doesn’t every American voter? who needs CNN when you have Russia Today? The US has the opposite, a sick media that trashes the US 24 hours a day, e.g. CNN. Why does Russia need propaganda when they have CNN?
So to summarize OMG what a pile of ... stuff.
Yes, but not yet. When the IG report comes out probably this month, the Demonicrats will go into overdrive trying to discredit the report and smear the IG and anyone associated with the report. Give them all the rope they need to hang themselves and then declassify all of it. Buy popcorn.
Trump is a master of combat in business and has shown himself to be an unorthodox president but totally effective. He knows he can declassify all this dirt on the deep state and the demonic-rats. He will at the most opportune time.
“After having spent decades overturning foreign governments, the CIA is now in the business of overturning American governments as well.”
A most ironic post is this, but unfortunately it is 100% accurate.
Brennan is one screwed up looking dude. He looks like pathological to me. A killer from day one of his life.
