That's five eyes for you. Its illegal to spy on own citizens, so ask your five eyes mates from another country to spy and give the information over.
The claims within the "Intelligence Community Assessment" (ICA) report were/are completely silly, and manufactured specifically to present a political narrative intended to undermine President-elect Donald Trump.
The ICA was the brain-trust of John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey. NSA Director Mike Rogers would not sign up to the “high confidence” claims, likely because he saw through the political motives of the report.
Apparently John Durham is looking into just this aspect: Was the ICA document a politically engineered report stemming from within a corrupt intelligence network?
The importance of that question is rather large. All of the downstream claims about Russian activity, including the Russian indictments promoted by Rosenstein and the Mueller team, are centered around origination claims of illicit Russian activity outlined in the ICA.
If the ICA is a false political document…. then guess what? Yep, the entire narrative from the JAR and ICA is part of a big fraud.
