Former CIA Director John Brennan’s insistence that the salacious and unverified Steele dossier was not part of the official Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 election is being contradicted by two top former officials.

Recently retired National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers stated in a classified letter to Congress that the Clinton campaign-funded memos did factor into the ICA. And James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence under President Obama, conceded in a recent CNN interview that the assessment was based on “some of the substantive content of the dossier.” Without elaborating, he maintained that “we were able to corroborate” certain allegations.

These accounts are at odds with Brennan’s May 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Committee that the Steele dossier was "not in any way used as the basis for the intelligence community's assessment" that Russia interfered in the election to help elect Donald Trump. Brennan has repeated this claim numerous times, including in February on “Meet the Press.”

So it seems former cia director and everyday trump hater Brennan may have lied to the intel committee when he said the dossier wasn’t part of the initial ICA.

The article goes on to show how Brennan was also feeding info from the dossier to obama (who as we know was in turn telling allies that trump may be a Russian stooge)

It also shows how Brennan only released the info to select insiders in three agencies, not the 17 agencies that was parroted over and over again

And how they implied the info from the dossier was corroborated when it wasn’t, and how they didn’t include dissenting opinions as is the norm

But again, the big take away is that according to statements from admiral Rogers and clapper, Brennan lied to the intel committee

Just another example of the high ups in the intel community lying to hurt trump

Except that the ICA did not reflect the consensus of the intelligence community. Clapper broke with tradition and decided not to put the assessment out to all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies for review. Instead, he limited input to a couple dozen chosen analysts from just three agencies — the CIA, NSA and FBI. Agencies with relevant expertise on Russia, such as the Department of Homeland Security, Defense Intelligence Agency and the State Department’s intelligence bureau, were excluded from the process.

While faulting Clapper for not following intelligence community tradecraft standards that Clapper himself ordered in 2015, the House Intelligence Committee’s 250-page report also found that the ICA did not properly describe the “quality and credibility of underlying sources” and was not “independent of political considerations."

In another departure from custom, the report is missing any dissenting views or an annex with evaluations of the conclusions from outside reviewers. "Traditionally, controversial intelligence community assessments like this include dissenting views and the views of an outside review group,” said Fred Fleitz, who worked as a CIA analyst for 19 years and helped draft national intelligence estimates at Langley. "It also should have been thoroughly vetted with all relevant IC agencies,” he added. "Why were DHS and DIA excluded?”

Fleitz suggests that the Obama administration limited the number of players involved in the analysis to skew the results. He believes the process was “manipulated” to reach a “predetermined political conclusion” that the incoming Republican president was compromised by the Russians.

“I’ve never viewed the ICA as credible,” the CIA veteran added.

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.

“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 former cia agent says that it looks like a select group of people were given access to the material to come up with a ore determined conclusion, that Russia worked with trump to hack the dnc.

So characters like comey Brennan clapper and even lover boy strzok got to control the narrative instead of all agencies getting the info including dissenting opinions as would be the norm

And Hillary and the media spouted the lie over and over again that this was the consensus of 17 agencies

I remember paying really close attention to the people appointed and replaced after Obama was elected, and it was only being truly discussed and revealed by the conservative talk radio guys, and also the MSM, but the MSM of course worded all of their reports in a way that made it all sound normal and good.

And I was often thinking when hearing about these people Obama was "installing" like malware into his "New America", that it would wind up showing us all the results, just like this, and just like everything else happening behind the scenes today..

We have all seen nothing but lies from those people Obama entrenched within the confines of government positions, and every single one of them so far (that has been in any spotlight) ie; Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, has shown how insidious they are.

And the alphabet agencies were also weaponized and given more power beginning with Bush and doubled down by Obama, and interestingly enough, the Bush people also hate Trump, which shows it's no surprise that these things involving the collusion charade and related malicious persecution of the Trump administration is still continuing. This massive coup seems to still be failing. All this power being brought against Trump for winning, and it is still going to fail, and is failing.

It sure is getting old and tiring, and sickening at this point.

But did he INTEND to lie. We know the precedent set by the investigation and outcome from the HRC investigation.

We can all hide behind 'intent' now...

I wouldn't trust Brennan to take out my garbage, nor Clapper or anyone that worked under Obama / DNC.

Crooked as a fishhook.

Amazing how these folks who claim to have done "nothing wrong" have been caught with their pants down so many times.

Proven liars should be impeached retroactively.

And amazing how those that chastise people for questioning the corruption of the intel community are yet again silent when evidence is shown of just that

This matches the testimony that destroyed the '17 agencies agree' lie that Hillary drove, supported by the media. IN that testimony it was made clear that just a few people from only 3 agencies, the NSA, CIA and FBI compiled the report in Jan 2017... the one that had no evidence in it. It was, in fact, just a narrative.

For pair of lovers, there has been precious little in their texts to support that view, and you would think with that as the narrative there would have been at least a few of those types of texts slipped into what we've been allowed to see just to support that story.

I'm not talking about invitations for hot hookup, but most lovers have small tells like the occasional term of endearment or something. And even if it wasn't common, if you're selling that story, you would think they would make sure some of that was in there. Wouldn't you?
