FBI Memos Raise Deep Questions About Russia/Trump Intel Assessment
In newly obtained emails, bureau officials noted there was not enough intelligence to support the January 2017 findings by the CIA
New Strzok Texts: "I hope this upcoming presidency doesn't fill my years with regret wondering what we might have done differently."
The FBI had concerns with the intelligence community’s (IC) January 2017 assessment that the Kremlin interfered in the presidential election with the specific intent of electing President Trump over Hillary Clinton.
In newly obtained emails, bureau officials noted there was not enough intelligence to support the January 2017 findings by the CIA which concluded Vladimir Putin meddled in the 2016 election to help Trump, according to a numerous documents and text messages obtained by SaraACarter.com.
However, while Strzok, Comey and others were disputing the findings of former CIA Director John Brennan and former DNI Director James Clapper behind closed doors, the public perception was that the FBI agreed with the intelligence community’s assessment, as noted in news reports in late 2016 and early 2017.
A spokesman for Brennan told this reporter in an interview earlier this year that “former FBI Director Comey has said publicly that he wanted to make sure President Obama and Trump knew about the dossier. Comey decided to attach it to the IC Assessment. There was even talk of including it as part of the IC Assessment but Brennan (and Clapper) in fact were the ones who didn’t allow the dossier to be part of it, and they didn’t allow that because they said the information wasn’t verified intelligence and that wasn’t what the IC Assessment was about.”

They never in their wildest nightmares thought they would ever get exposed like they are.

So my gathering from this article is that the fbi was not convinced that Russia was focused on helping trump win
They thought that could have been a possibility, but also thought it could just be Russia messing with the system in general
This is counter to what the media spoon fed us all, that all the ic community thought out in was trying to help trump
The real problem here is the lack of transparency and the media spin the ic community was putting on everything
Instead of being open, they seek to spin everything they do through their media friends, and then do all they can to release any documents for the public to see
