Deep State Spooks Deflect Blame as Russia Probe Origin Investigation Begins

The deep state is in damage control mode.

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:

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.

OOPS: Intelligence Community Admits Briefing Over Russian Interference For Trump, Sanders “Overstated”

The experts got it wrong again.

Published

on

Figures within the U.S intelligence community are rushing to walk back reports that the intel community has concluded Russia is waging election interference operations with the express intent of re-electing President Donald Trump and boosting the campaign of Democratic frontrunner.

Reports of the intel community’s purported conclusion on the matter surfaced days ago, when the Washington Post reported that the entity had briefed the campaign of Bernie Sanders on Russian attempts to assist his candidacy.

Now, national security officials have sought to clarify the matter, explaining to CNN that the individual tasked with providing Sanders a brief on the topic “overstated” the intelligence community’s beliefs.

The vaguely defined intelligence community apparently has concluded that Russia is orchestrating purported interference campaigns in the election. But it’s much less clear if Russia is explicitly looking to re-elect Trump as President.

Two intelligence community officials who spoke to CNN described the leading media characterization of intelligence on Russian interference as poor. One said it “lacked nuance,” and another outright described it as “misleading.

A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that. It’s more that they understand the President is someone they can work with, he’s a dealmaker,” one bureaucrat was quoted as saying by CNN.

Reports of wide-ranging Russian interference have proven as wildly unreliable as any widely-reported on story in the American political press in the last four years. After Robert Mueller’s dramatic and seemingly endless probe ended in an outright flop- failing to produce evidence of any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and questionably impactful Russian social media trolling operations, it’s safe to say anything the mainstream media reports on the unending conspiracy should be treated with skepticism.
