John Durham investigation intensifies focus on John Brennan


Recommended Posts

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference. 

Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak. The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

Officials said Durham has been interviewing CIA officials this year, zeroing in on those at the National Intelligence Council, a center within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence which oversaw the collaboration between the CIA, FBI, and National Security Agency in putting together the 2017 assessment, and looking at how the work product was finalized.:snip:

Will John Brennan Get Away It?

Attorney General Bill Barr, speaking to Fox News about the Obama administration’s spying upon the Trump campaign, said, “What happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history. Without any basis they started this investigation of his campaign. And even more concerning actually is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president … to sabotage the presidency — or at least had the effect of sabotaging his presidency.”

The Obama administration official most responsible for this travesty is former CIA director John Brennan. John Durham, the prosecutor whom Barr assigned to examine Spygate, is said to be focusing on Brennan. It would appear that Durham has multiple grounds on which to indict him. We are told by the Wall Street Journal that Durham is looking into Brennan’s use of the Steele dossier and his attempts to influence the intelligence community’s assessment of Russian interference in the election.

Brennan’s CIA was a gusher of leaks before and after the election.

Let’s hope Durham is also still examining the origins of the travesty to which Barr referred — that the initial investigation into the Trump campaign “had no basis” to it. It was Brennan who initiated the sham investigation, which rested upon nothing more than flaky tips he claimed to have received from foreign intelligence agencies, from Estonia to Great Britain. It was Brennan and the Trump-hating Peter Strzok (the FBI’s liaison to the CIA, who received a special award from Brennan) who cooked up schemes to infiltrate the campaign, such as having a Cambridge academic, Stefan Halper, try and entrap George Papadopoulos. And it was Brennan who criminally leaked information about the FBI investigation into Trump to the former Nevada senator Harry Reid.:snip:
