John Brennanís Plot to Infiltrate the Trump Campaign
The American Spectator ^ | 22 May 2018 | George Neumayr

Posted on 05/22/2018 10:43:38 AM PDT by Magnatron

s Trump won primary after primary in 2016, a rattled John Brennan started claiming to colleagues at the CIA that Estonia’s intelligence agency had alerted him to an intercepted phone call suggesting Putin was pouring money into the Trump campaign. The tip was bogus, but Brennan bit on it with opportunistic relish.

Out of Brennan’s alarmist chatter about the bogus tip came an extraordinary leak to the BBC: that Brennan had used it, along with later half-baked tips from British intelligence, as the justification to form a multi-agency spy operation (given the Orwellian designation of an “inter-agency taskforce”) on the Trump campaign, which he was running right out of CIA headquarters.

The CIA was furious about the leak, but never denied the BBC’s story. To Congress earlier this year, Brennan acknowledged the existence of the group, but cast his role in it as the mere conduit of tips about Trump-Russia collusion: “It was well beyond my mandate as director of CIA to follow on any of those leads that involved U.S. persons. But I made sure that anything that was involving U.S. persons, including anything involving the individuals involved in the Trump campaign, was shared with the bureau.”

But if his role had truly been passive, the “inter-agency taskforce” wouldn’t have been meeting at CIA headquarters. By keeping its discussions at Langley, Brennan could keep his finger wedged in the pie.

Meanwhile at the new Federal Prison in North Alaska...

"That one they are bringing in is called, 'Brennan'. He didn't eat pork. So the meat will be of a higher quality, but kind of tough because he is old. Keep that in mind if he tries to escape, kids..."

Amazing how not one reporter at CNN, MSNBC or the other main stations have investigated this. Really truly amazing.

This is right out of spy novel, only it shows how totally inept these people were and still are.

This must go to the top...I am quite sure Obama knew about this, he must have known about this.

A disturbing portrait of a highly politicized CIA and its boss who hated Trump so much he was willing to break every law in the book to stop him.

And the Obama Choom Gang criminality is simply the tip of a vast iceberg. More to come.

They want to make Brennan the fall guy, if someone has to fall. But are we really expected to beleive that the head of the CIA was coordinating actions across multiple agencies, all without the knowledge of Obama or Hillary? Heck, he was using Hillary’s fake research paper to help move it forward! Yet she and Obama had no idea? Uh huh.

“The members of Brennan’s working group at Langley “were just a bunch of out-of-control idiots,” says a former high-ranking CIA official to TAS. He finds it flabbergasting that Brennan would bring CIA officials and FBI officials into the same room to cook up schemes to send a spy into the Trump campaign’s ranks.”

LOL. Best Election Ever!

I'm sure you are right. They had eight years to infiltrate, and during the last two or three years they were confident that the Republicans wouldn't be able to beat Hillary. They set up to throw a whole bunch Hail Mary passes.

With all this historically monstrous criminality going on we need the absolute best to engage it. And what do we get? Sessions and Rosenfeinstein as controlled by Mueller.6

After Watergate, the White House, I mean ANY White House, is extra careful not to get it’s hands dirty and covers its tracks. So I wouldn’t expect to see anyone in the current or former White House to be frog marched Colson-style in dramatic fashion. It’s a thing of the past. Even though obviously Obama knew. But simple logic doesn’t cut it. You need concrete proof, which trust me there is none, unless Brennan rats out Zero, which is equally unlikely that this pinko is going to flip.

Brennan needs to be wearing orange though. I’d almost let everyone else go free. This guy is a truly evil partisan hack and the poster child of weaponizing and politicizing intel.

A veteran of the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s CIA was full of Hillary supporters, some of whom decorated their desks with her campaign paraphernalia. Brennan, whom the press noted would walk the halls of the CIA in an LGBT rainbow lanyard, encouraged this open political atmosphere. While Brennan knew his spying operation on the Trump campaign was an “exceptionally, exceptionally sensitive” matter (as reported by journalists David Corn and Michael Isikoff), he assumed its machinations would never come to light.

Unbelievable

How could Christopher Wray, Rosenstein, Lynch, Comey etc be unaware of this? Is the president still safe?
