Durham has questions for Brennan, NSA’s Mike Rogers has the answers
[COMMDIGINEWS] US Attorney John Durham is looking at the Intelligence Community Assessment from October 2016. And Durham is asking CIA officials some pointed questions. About how it came to its discredited, partisan conclusions? Who was involved? How did they manipulate the process? Who is part of the origins of the Russia hoax conspiracy? Does Mike Rogers have the answers?

You remember John Brennan
...director of the CIA under the Obama administration. One of the deeper dwelling denizens of the Deep State, possibly even the guy who lit the match that launched the Russiagate coup attempt...
’s Intelligence Community Assessment. This is the document where 17 US intelligence agencies all "unanimously" concluded that Vladimir Putin
...President-for-Life of Russia. He gets along well with other presidents for life. He is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law, which occasionally results in somebody dropping dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substance. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to him. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile or dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substances...

... former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away...
in the 2016 election.

The implication was, of course, that Trump was possibly a Russian agent.

Except it wasn’t 17 agencies as only four were involved in making the actual assessment. The CIA, DNI, DOJ, and NSA. Only three people were part of formulating the document. John Brennan, James Clapper, and the infamous Peter Strzok.

Strzok keeps popping up at every phase of the Russia hoax. The Mifsud, Downer, Halper frame job of George Papadopoulos. Launching the counterintelligence investigation against Donald Trump.

Strzok was reportedly JamesThe spine of the FBI is the rule of law Comey

’s ongoing liaison with John Brennan. He apparently is the principal author of the Intelligence Community Assessment, with input from Brennan and Clapper. How convenient.

The report was never circulated to the other 13 intelligence agencies for comment. Most significantly the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and the State Department intelligence services were all excluded from the review process.

The DIA has enormous expertise in Russia and cyber warfare. Presumably the focus of the Intelligence Community Assessment. Brennan and Strzok clearly didn’t want anyone messing with his special partisan garden party. Or contradicting their strident and deliberately defamatory conclusions.

But there were enormous flies in the ointment that were overlooked when the "unanimous" estimate was leaked to the press in October of 2016. It wasn’t "unanimous" at all.

Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and Strzok, on behalf of the CIA, DNI and DOJ, had "high confidence" in the extremely volatile and partisan conclusions. But Admiral Mike Rogers at the NSA had only "moderate confidence" in the conclusions. He had good reason to doubt the Intelligence Community Assessment.

Mike Rogers knew that Brennan, Clapper, and Comey had been illegally accessing NSA programs to spy on American citizens on behalf of the Obama White House since 2012.

#1 Mike Rogers knew that Brennan, Clapper, and Comey had been illegally accessing NSA programs to spy on American citizens on behalf of the Obama White House since 2012.

Precisely why no one in Congress is calling for Admiral Rogers to testify about anything.

In other July 2014 news that is no longer widely discussed: CIA admits spying on Senators Feistein, Udall, staffers.

#2 Spying on Feinstein? Surely that's how her driver was revealed.

#3 Messrs. Imram and Abid Awan to the white courtesy phone please, Imram and Abid Awan.

Link to yet another story involving Dems, which is no longer discussed.

#4 I was struck by the comment about Admiral Rogers being invisible in all the last years of brouhaha over Russia and the dossier. Powerful proof that the public noises of the Democrats are about avoiding the truth, not seeking it. A genuine hero and true public servant.

#6 CIA Director John Brennan voted for the Communist Party candidate in the 1976 presidential election. Brennan told a congressional panel last week that he “froze” while taking a CIA polygraph test four years later when the questioner asked him if he had ever worked with or for a group that was “dedicated to overthrowing the U.S.,” CNN reported.

Before CNN was the Communist News Network and still resembled a news organization. Brennan was more likely to be the one who was turned by Putin. Hmmmn, A Communist-Muslim as head of the CIA--a scary thought.
