Is it Brennan or is it Comey? And which other ones are involved? And will be taking sides…while simultaneously covering their own backsides?
The players who, for over two years, have had all that fun working the collusion delusion that mueller – however grudgingly – blew apart, are going to be turning on each other. Watch it happen.
Excerpted from Gregg Re and Catherine Herridge’s article for foxnews.com:
A high-level dispute over which senior government officials pushed the unverified Steele dossier amid efforts to surveil the Trump campaign has broken out into the open again, after it emerged that Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the FBI and DOJ’s actions were “lawful and appropriate.”
Sources familiar with the records told Fox News that a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA.
Fox News was told that the email chain – not yet public — referred to the dossier as “crown material,” but it was not clear why this apparent code was used. On Tuesday night, former GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy said on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” that “Comey has a better argument than Brennan, based on what I’ve seen.”
But in a statement to Fox News, a former CIA official put the blame squarely on Comey.
“Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report,” the official said.
OK, who is it? Brennan? Comey? Maybe Clapper? Some combination, maybe including others as well?
This collusion scandal – the real one, not the fake one we were subjected to for over two years – is well on its way to blowing wide open. And not just for Comey, Brennan and Clapper.
I suggest you line up a nice, comfortable easy chair and a lot of popcorn. This is going to be quite a show.
