Deep State Spooks Deflect Blame as Russia Probe Origin Investigation Begins
Following the release of the Mueller report which made clear that President Donald Trump was not an agent of Russia, the deep state hacks who pushed that conspiracy theory for years are getting ready to turn on each other.
One deep state fissure is coming from the dispute between former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan. Brennan is being fingered as the likely culprit behind pushing the discredited Steele dossier as the basis for spying on President Trump.
Fox News sources claim there is an email chain showing that “Comey told [FBI] subordinates that … Brennan insisted the dossier be included” in the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) that ultimately resulted in the multi-year Mueller debacle.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has corroborated those claims in a Twitter post:
BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report… Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.

An unnamed former CIA official is talking to the press and attempting to spin that it was the FBI who was responsible.
“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.
The former CIA official also claimed that “Brennan and Clapper prevented it from being added into the official assessment” and “Comey then decided on his own to brief Trump about the document.”
Brennan personally claims the Steele dossier “did not play any role whatsoever in the intelligence community assessment that was done and that was presented to then-President Obama and then-President-elect Trump.”
Earlier this week, former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said on Fox News that he anticipates these deep state hacks to continue turning on each other as they try to avoid complicity and perhaps jail time for what they have done.
“I think it’s interesting Brennan and Comey right now, the only thing they seem to share is a hatred for Donald Trump. It’s going to be interesting if they begin to turn on one another. I’ve seen the document. I’m not going to describe it any more than that, Comey’s got a better argument than Brennan based on what I have seen,” Gowdy said.
The deep state’s cheerleaders in the fake news media, particularly Chris Matthews of MSNBC, are decrying Attorney General Bill Barr’s choice of U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russian hoax.
“It’s an embarrassment to have an attorney general who looks like a Roy Cohn, a guy who will do anything to defend the president and now has become his hitman,” Matthews said of Barr.
“Not only will he play defense, he’s out to destroy the government, the FBI, everything in order to cover the tracks of the president. What do you make of this guy and how can you stop Barr from doing what he’s out to do now, destroy the FBI?” Matthews asked.
If finding out the plain truth about the motives of FBI and other deep state agencies are enough to “destroy” them, that suggests that the U.S. federal bureaucracy is in desperate need of reform.
