What role did the Steele authored and DNC-Clinton campaign funded dossier play in the call for a special counsel investigation into Russian election interference and the Trump campaign? What role did the dossier play in obtaining the FISA warrants to spy on Trump Tower during the presidential campaign?
When former CIA Direct John Brennan was asked about the role of the dossier, he said it was not part of the intelligence assessment concerning the Russian election interference.
However, two others from the Obama administration are contradicting Brennan’s statement, further mudding up the water with more lies and deceptions.
(Real Clear Investigations) – 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.”
In a March 5, 2018, letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, Adm. Rogers informed the committee that a two-page summary of the dossier — described as “the Christopher Steele information” — was “added” as an “appendix to the ICA draft,” and that consideration of that appendix was “part of the overall ICA review/approval process.” …
Democrats are so hell bent on finding anything they can charge Donald Trump with in hopes of removing him from office that they continue to see the mountain of evidence piling up against them. The lies alone are enough to fill volumes of written works and land dozens of the nation’s top Democrats in jail for many years, if only Sessions would do his job.
