Although the FBI’s case officially began July 31, 2016, there had been investigative activity before that date. John Brennan’s CIA might have directed activity in Britain, which could be a problem because of longstanding agreements that the U.S. will not conduct intelligence operations there. It would explain why the FBI continues to stonewall Congress as to the inquiry’s origin.
Further, what we know about the case’s origin does not meet the threshold required by the attorney general guidelines for opening a counterintelligence case. That standard requires “predicate information,” or “articulable facts.”
From what has been made public, all that passes for predicate information in this matter originated in Britain.
Although Mr. Brennan has exposed himself as a biased actor, the CIA has escaped criticism for using only thinly sourced information from British intelligence to snooker the FBI. Most damaging is the possibility that the CIA violated agreements with Britain by spying there rather than asking MI5 or MI6 to do so. And that may be what is really being withheld from Congress.

I tend to look at everything from a Biblical perspective. Jesus, the son of God, and Savior of mankind was betrayed, not by people who didn't know him, or by people who weren't around him, but by an apostle of his. One of the 12.
I'm not a political person but I can realize this fact in all aspects of life. If Jesus can be betrayed by a close associate, intimate acquaintance, one whom he chose specially to fill a role of his 12 apostles after much deliberation, thought, and prayer. Who in the world is immune from being betrayed?
Look out for personality types like Judas. He was more educated than the other 12, from a more prestigious region of Judah, and perhaps looked down on his fellow apostles. He was also very greedy, and a thief. And got his feelings offended very easily because of his arrogant attitude.
Did he have faith? Yes. Did he know Jesus was the son of God? Yes. Was he allowed into the most intimate aquintance of Jesus? Yes. Did he betray Jesus? Yes.
Anyone on earth, me, you, anyone, a government agency, a governor or ruler. No one is immune from having a Judas close to them that they trusted on and relied on.
That is all.
Good morning Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting. The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father. This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump - helped along by Aras and Emin. What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly? I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first. Best Rob Goldstone
