President Barack Obama read Trump dossier material in his daily presidential briefings, according to sources close to the House investigation into the creation of the anti-Trump dossiers.
“Brennan put some of the dossier material into the PDB [presidential daily briefing] for Obama and described it as coming from a ‘credible source,’ which is how they viewed Steele,” said the source familiar with the House investigation. “But they never corroborated his sources,” reported Paul Sperry Tuesday.
House sources also said that John Brennan used anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok as his “go-between” with James Comey.
“A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok,” Sperry wrote. “Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source.
This shows that Brennan was manipulating the operation and that President Barack Obama was integrally involved. Big League Politics reported:
Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was sharply critical of the FISA court as he came up for confirmation, before the Obama administration intelligence chiefs reportedly hacked his phone and electronic records.
The FISA court is being accused of being a body that reports to no one, with wide-ranging power to do the bidding of intelligence operatives. Hillary Clinton’s lawyer in the Russia matter Michael Sussmann, a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm that tapped DNC contractor Crowdstrike to “investigate” the leak of DNC emails to Wikileaks, was interviewed by CNN on the “inner workings of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court” in 2013, according to the Perkins Coie archives. Robert Mueller has also praised the FISA court prior to the Trump case.
Justice John Roberts, a Bush nominee, voiced his displeasure with the court in his 2005 confirmation.
“I’ll be very candid. When I first learned about the FISA court, I was surprised. It’s not what we usually think of when we think of a court,” Roberts said.
